Annotation

Reads The Garden of Eden as Hemingway’s thematic reworking of “The Bear” in his final attempt at one-upmanship over Faulkner. Applying Richard H. Kings’ family romance theory, Cackett focuses on the epic hunt and compares how each author uses the past to inform present day experience. Concludes that David Bourne and Ike McCaslin need to understand the past without repeating it.
