Annotation

Biography on the allure of Paris for the young writer, his subsequent visits, and eventual residency. Covers his journalistic travels along with the composition of in our time, In Our Time, and The Sun Also Rises. Focuses on the important role Paris plays in Hemingway’s canon, theorizing that Jake’s geographical path through Paris and Spain is also psychological, confirming the impossibility of escape from personal difficulties through travel. Concludes with a discussion of the autobiographical dimensions found in The Garden of Eden. Frequent references to A Moveable Feast.
