Abstract or Summary
  • The 1920’s was a period of immense growth of consumer and celebrity culture, that brought changes in film, art and the creation and presentation of identity. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Tender is the Night reflects these changes, particularly with respect to how cultural shifts challenge prevailing views about individual autonomy and the distinctions between subjects and objects. Using a cultural theoretical lens, I examine how Fitzgerald uses elements of consumer culture to explore the performance of character. Ultimately, Fitzgerald sees a collapse between autonomous, creating subjects and controlled objects as a result of the ways that people both construct and perform their identity.
