Annotation

Opens with an exploration of possible real-life models for Jordan. Draws attention to Hemingway’s reading history, focusing on his interest in Lawrence. Illustrates parallels between Lawrence’s Seven Pillars of Wisdom (1935) and For Whom the Bell Tolls, arguing that Lawrence was a significant inspiration for Jordan’s character as a soldier and an outsider.
