Annotation

Drawing on use of the syllable “pa” in Sophocles’s Philoctetes, Mozart’s Magic Flute, and Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier, Scholes and Comely aim to decode Hemingway and his code by focusing on the semiotic codes contained within the word “Papa.” Concludes that Hemingway, like many of his characters, tried to escape paternity, thus violating his own code. Briefly references “Fathers and Sons” and “Indian Camp.”
