Babes in the Woods- F Scott Fitzgerald

There cannot be a better place to begin our study of literature by F Scott Fitzgerald than with his first published short story. A lot of people believe that Fitzgerald’s first published story was “Head and Shoulders” and in a way, it was. It was the first story he had published in a well-known newspaper, The Saturday Evening Post”. However, the year before “Head and Shoulders” appeared, “Babes in the Woods” was released in the Smart Set, an American literary magazine which reached an audience of around 2000 people.
