Annotation

Explores reasons why Hemingway chose to portray Robert Cohn as a villainous Jew, and analyzes how Cohn’s lack of masculinity represents a future Hemingway was uncomfortable with. Wilentz reads Cohn’s character as a reflection of the irrational anxieties of early twentieth-century Americans over the influx of immigrants in post-industrial America.
