Annotation

Categorizes The Garden of Eden as a story of David’s triumphant success in his unyielding commitment to his craft over the inconstancy of women and love. Raeburn focuses on the dissolution of the Bourne’s marriage due to their refusal to bend to their respective cultural/sexual roles. Concludes that like David, Hemingway’s intention was not to clarify or redeem his tumultuous past, but to assert his devotion to his art.
