Inhaltsangabe zu "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"

“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” is a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who ages in reverse: He is born a feeble 70-year-old and becomes younger as the years progress. This faithful graphic-novel adaptation chronicles Benjamin Button’s many adventures: He falls in love with a woman who ages normally (this causes complications), starts a family, and establishes a successful business. In his later years, he attends Harvard as a student and plays on their football team. By the time he is an old man, Benjamin Button resembles a newborn baby. And then he remembered nothing.Through the noons and nights he breathed and over him there were soft mumblings and murmurings that he scarcely heard, and faintly differentiated smells, and light and darkness. The Hollywood adaptation of the story-starring Brad Pitt (as Benjamin Button), Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swenton, and Julia Ormond, and directed by David Fincher (who also directed Pitt in “Fight Club” and “Seven”) Francis Scott Fitzgerald was an American writer of novels and short stories, whose works are evocative of the Jazz Age, a term he coined himself. He is widely regarded as one of the twentieth century’s greatest writers. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the “Lost Generation” of the Twenties. He finished four novels, including The Great Gatsby, with another published posthumously, and wrote dozens of short stories that treat themes of youth and promise along with despair and age. Fitzgerald’s work and legend has inspired writers ever since he was first published. The publication of The Great Gatsby prompted T. S. Eliot to write, in a letter to Fitzgerald, “[I]t seems to me to be the first step that American fiction has taken since Henry James…” Don Birnam, the protagonist of Charles Jackson’s The Lost Weekend, says to himself, referring to Gatsby, “There’s no such thing…as a flawless novel. But if there is, this is it. Into the 21st century, Fitzgerald’s reputation continues to grow. Millions of copies of “The Great Gatsby” and his other works have been sold, and “Gatsby,” a constant best-seller, is required reading in many high school and college classes.
