Peek, Charles A. and Jill Heney. “‘The tug of a far away invisible force’: American Idealization of ‘Home’ and Its Impact on Two Signature Novels.” Platte Valley Review 24, no. 1 (1996): 60-75.

Annotation

Details the cultural development of “home” as a utopian, American ideal, and its manifestation in Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms and Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (1925). Argues that Frederic Henry searches for “that which cannot be lost,” but must ultimately awaken to and disabuse himself of his romantic expectations.
