Annotation

Concerned with Jake’s contradictory treatment of sports. Explores his status as sports “aficionado” versus his failure to actively participate in such sporting events as the bicycle race in San Sebastian and fishing in the Pyrenees. Ward speculates on how Jake’s character could reflect Hemingway’s own complex attitude toward sports.
