Annotation

Theorizes that Hemingway’s anti-Semitic treatment of Robert Cohn reveals both the author’s fears of castration (the result of childhood and later war traumas) and the jealousy he harbored toward his literary rival, Harold Loeb. Concludes that Hemingway’s neutering of Loeb was literary and that Jake’s castration manifests Hemingway’s fear of losing his ability to write.
