Fitzgerald, F. Scott: Emotional Bankruptcy. v1. 04 Jan 09
Many of F. Scott Fitzgerald's short stories introduce themes he later employed in his novels.
One source on Fitzgerald notes that this story "...develops a key theme[in his work]: his concept of emotional bankruptcy, the idea that it is possible to use up one’s capacity for emotion and be left with nothing. He had employed this idea in a 1930-1931 series of stories in The Saturday Evening Post about a young woman named Josephine Perry (the last story in the series is titled “Emotional Bankruptcy”). Josephine spends all of her emotional energy by the time she is eighteen, and when the man she could truly love comes along, she can no longer feel anything for him."
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.
