Annotation

Contends that Macomber was murdered by his wife, who felt threatened by his newly acquired bravery. Points to Hemingway’s use of animal imagery as evidence of Macomber’s growing confidence along with Margot Macomber’s corresponding concern. Also draws parallels between the fallen lion and the victimized Macomber.
