Annotation

Freudian analysis focusing on the novel’s death motif, suggesting Jake’s insomnia is caused by his preoccupation with impotence and fear of death. Traces Jake’s dysfunctional relationship with Brett to his obsessive reliving of the war, as evidenced through specific scenes, characters, and imagery.
