Annotation

Manuscript study focused primarily on Hemingway’s revisions of passages containing sexuality or profanity to avoid what Hemingway called the “emasculation” of his text through censorship. Gould analyzes what the revisions imply about the sexual relationships between Robert and Maria, as well as Maria’s sexual connection to Pilar.
