...Babylon Revisited Scott Fitzgerald’s Babylon Revisited is a tragic story of a man’s struggle to reclaim moral ascendancy. Fitzgerald fills Charlie’s life with sympathy, never drawing back from a truthful depiction of his protagonist’s flaws and failures, yet passionate of his daughter and his sincere attempts to change. What is not certain is whether Charlie has truly changed or merely deceiving himself that he has. This essay uses a formal analysis to prove that Charlie is indeed truly reformed, but he still feels nostalgic of Paris, which becomes the symbol of his degeneracy. Some readers may think that Charlie is only deceiving himself that he has... for calling a cab. But it hadn’t been...

...Babylon Revisited’ is based on a true life story. What is interesting, in light of the current essay, is that F. Scott Fitzgerald was not, in his own time, seen as a modernist writer. And yet, as literary retrospection has offered new analyses of his work, he is today seen as a modernist whose work, as an American writer, complements that of the European modernists such as Joyce or Woolf. Fitzgeralds style was quintessentially American, and perhaps the fact of his Americanism overshadowed his modernism in earlier understanding of his literary role in the 20th Century.

Joyce's and Fitzgerald's texts both critique the manner in which social conventions make people believe that they have to think and act in certain ways, so much so that individual identity is subsumed into the social corpus, and conforming is valued more than being an individual. Joyce examines the manner in which the adolescent has to suffer secretly through the awakening of his sexuality, because society determines that it is dirty and immoral to feel sexual desire. The story is predominated by images of ugliness. The protagonist is an orphan whose aunt and uncle work in squalid conditions. The girl is...
