Annotation

Freudian reading examining Hemingway’s exploration of the theme of the inevitability of death in The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Argues that Hemingway is “preoccupied with the attraction of narratives not merely to deaths but to deaths that are redundant,” with even the distinction between cowardly and courageous deaths blurred.
