Annotation

Explores the seemingly contradictory nature of sleep in “Big Two-Hearted River” and “Now I Lay Me,” claiming in the later story that Nick’s insomnia serves as a psychological defense against his traumatic war memories by creating a childhood “screen memory,” purportedly a manifestation of Nick’s repressed fear of emasculation.
