Annotation

Metafictional reading, examining the relationship between art and reality. Vaughn claims Nick is the lone narrator and writer based on her examination of the unpublished coda to “Big Two-Hearted River.” Explores Nick’s development of voice, arguing that he “brings reality and fictionality together and blurs traditional distinctions between fact and fiction by forcing the reader, who reads the book a fictional character wrote, to participate in his fictional world.”
