Scafella, Frank. “‘Big Two-Hearted River’: A Brief Meditation on ‘Nothing.’” Bulletin of the West Virginia Association of College English Teachers 13, no. 1 (Fall 1991): 29-34.

Annotation

Relying on critic Malcolm Cowley’s notion that the story reveals Nick’s traumatized psyche, Scafella interprets Nick’s fishing trip as a means of escaping and healing from his war wounds. Focuses on the descriptions of the black grasshopper, the trout filled river, and temperature.
