what does"more than last to" mean in this paragraph from Fitzgerald's the side of paradise Here was a new generation, shouting the old cries, learning the old creeds, through a revery of long days and nights; destined finally to go out into that dirty gray turmoil to follow love and pride; a new generation dedicated more than the last to the fear of poverty and the worship of success; grown up to find all Gods dead, all wars fought, all faiths in man shaken

"a new generation dedicated more than the last to the fear of poverty" = "a new generation" + "dedicated more than the last to the fear of poverty" = "a new generation" + ("dedicated to the fear of poverty" + "more than the last [generation]") "A new generation that is dedicated to the fear of poverty more than the last generation was"
