Philbrick, Nathaniel. “A Window on the Prey: The Hunter Sees a Human Face in Hemingway’s ‘After the Storm’ and Melville’s ‘The Grand Armada.’” Hemingway Review 14, no. 1 (1994): 25-35.

Annotation

Comparison of Hemingway’s short story with Melville’s earlier piece from Moby-Dick (1851) asserting that both authors undermine the traditional hunter-prey relationship by “humanizing” the prey. Although no direct evidence exists that Hemingway read Melville, Philbrick argues that thematic and structural parallels, such as the use of the storm and the chase, suggest Hemingway may have sought out the works of the great sea writer before attempting “After the Storm,” his first mature sea fiction.
