Annotation

Argues for Wilson’s inhumanity in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” based on Hemingway’s excessive emphasis on the hunter’s suntan, ocular description (associating him with animals and machines), and questionable moral behavior. Far from exhibiting the standard of masculine courage reminiscent of characters such as Romero of The Sun Also Rises, Wilson more closely resembles Belmonte who has “lost the aficion he once had.”
