F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda were both lovers of poetry--in particular, the works of Edgar Allan Poe and John Keats. The two used poetry in their courtship letters, and gifted books of poems to family members throughout their lives.
Fitzgerald, while still a college student, was noted in the New York Times for his wit writing poetical lyrics for Princeton's Triangle Club's annual musicals. He continued to write poems until his death in 1940.
The Fitzgerald Museum continues the Fitzgeralds' love of poetry with our annual Poetry Contest.
