F. Scott Fitzgerald
The Beautiful and Damned is narrated in the third person by an omniscient narrator.
The Beautiful and Damned is told mostly in the past tense.
The words beautiful and damned describe the two main characters, Anthony Patch and Gloria Gilbert Patch. They are considered beautiful because they are attractive, well-off, and prominent in society. At the same time, their shallowness and basic lack of humanity condemn them to lives of unhappiness and desperation.
