Right now I am hoping to follow up on stories that would have been written around the time of This Side of Paradise. I recently finished:
The OrdealThese were all written before TSOP and is considered his apprentice fiction. I want to pull out The Debutante, Sentiment and Rouge, Pierian Spring and Babes in the Woods as stories I want to categorize and collect.
The Spire and The Gargoyle
Sentiment and the Use of Rouge
The Pierian Spring and the Last Straw
Babes in the woods
What exactly am I trying to collect? I want to pull out the stories of new, young love and its journey, I also want to pull out stories I particularly like. Of the ones I pulled out Sentiment does not really fit in the first category, but I like it because it is very insightful and interesting on the discussion and views of how morals loosened due to the war.
I also like The Ordeal which deals with Catholicism and Spire and Gargoyle which is a Princeton story, but they do not fit as neatly in what I am looking for.
From here I think I want to reread The Perfect Hour which deals with Ginevra King and how she influenced Scotts writing.
