Miko, Stephen. “The River, the Iceberg, and the Shit-detector.” Criticism 33, no. 4 (Fall 1991): 503-25.

Annotation

Focusing on the omitted section entitled “On Writing,” Miko questions the validity of the “iceberg principle” in relation to reading “The Big Two-Hearted River.” Disputes critics’ claims that the story’s unspoken backdrop is war, contending it is really about hiking, fishing, and camping.
