Annotation

Examines Jake’s reaction to Brett’s entourage of homosexuals, concluding that Jake’s misdirected anger towards these “dandies” stems from his own sexually debilitating wound. Rudat goes on to argue that it is possible to read Jake as a closeted homosexual who comes to terms with his wound and achieves sexual dominance in the final scene with Brett.
