Annotation

Analyzes the nature of Jake’s war wound and his relationship to Brett by examining the use of jokes, sexual references, and biblical motifs in the novel. Rudat claims that Jake’s wound is an extension of Hemingway’s own war wound and proposes that the novel is an extended allusion to Laurence Sterne’s Tristram Shandy (1759).
