abstract

In The Beautiful and Damned several intertextual references to Willa Cather’s The Song of the Lark and to Edith Wharton’s The Custom of the Country occur: this essay explores those regarding the New Woman, the flapper. Harshly criticised by the two women writers, she is more nuanced in Fitzgerald’s second novel.
