Hemingway and Henderson on the High Savannas, or Two Midwestern Moderns and the Myth of Africa
Broad overview of Hemingway’s experiences in Africa, pointing out parallels between such works as “Safari” and Green Hills of Africa and Bellow’s Henderson the Rain King (1959). Anderson writes: “Hemingway’s reality, although he would deny it, is of the memory, transmuted by talent and imagination, into myth, the point at which Bellow’s African reality, begins and ends.”
