       Our article aims at a brief literary analysis of the letters written by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, the famous American writer to his only child, Scottie. Despite his short life (1896-1940), Fitzgerald left an indelible mark not only on English-language literature, but also on world literature. His novels and short stories have been translated into many languages ​​of the world. And the new screen adaptation of his masterpiece "The Great Gatsby" once again opened the door for the writer in the hearts of millions of modern youth. The writer's biography is no less impressive than the lives of his most reckless characters. Fitzgerald's life was full of adventures and extremes. He had periods of carefree life and days when he had to constantly ask his literary agent for an advance. Scottie, his only daughter, was the brightest point of his life, born to him by his wife, the beautiful and talented Zelda Sayre. Dozens of letters written to Scott reveal the truest and most intimate side of the writer - the father figure and that of the role of the father - for which he never betrayed.
