Annotation

Examines Hemingway’s structural and thematic use of paired characters to tell a single story that blends comedy with darkness. Discusses the dichotomy of the ward and the private room in relation to real life and isolation. Putnam also examines the relationship between Cayetano and Frazer, focusing on their differing views of hope.
