Title: Tender Is the Night

He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: "This Side of Paradise," "The Beautiful and Damned," "Tender is the Night" and his most famous, "The Great Gatsby." A fifth, unfinished novel, "The Love of the Last Tycoon," was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote many short stories that treat themes of youth and promise along with despair and age. Novels such as "The Great Gatsby" and "Tender is the Night" were made into films, and in 1958 his life from 19371940 was dramatized in "Beloved Infidel."

Kenneth Lewis Roberts (December 8, 1885 in Kennebunk, Maine July 21, 1957 in Kennebunkport, Maine) was an American author of historical novels. Roberts worked first as a journalist, becoming nationally known for his work with the Saturday Evening Post from 1919 to 1928, and then as a popular novelist. Born in Kennebunk, Maine, Roberts specialized in Regionalist historical fiction. He often wrote about his native state and its terrain, also depicting other upper New England states and scenes. For example, the heroes of Arundel and Rabble in Arms are from Kennebunk (then called Arundel), while Langdon Towne, the chief character of Roberts's "Northwest Passage," is depicted as being from Kittery, Maine with friends in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Roberts graduated from Cornell University in 1908, where he wrote the lyrics for two Cornell fight songs, including Fight for Cornell. He was also a member of the Quill and Dagger society. He was later awarded honorary doctorates from three New England universities: Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, Colby College in Maine and Middlebury College in Vermont.
