Powell, Tamara M. “Lilith Started It! Catherine as Lilith in The Garden of Eden.” Hemingway Review 15, no. 2 (1996): 78-88.

Annotation

Refutes traditional readings of David and Catherine as Adam and Eve, asserting that Catherine plays the role of the androgynous Lilith from ancient Jewish tradition. Provides a literary comparison to Rossetti’s “Eden Bower” and “Lilith” (poems familiar to Hemingway) and argues for the author’s sympathetic view toward female characters.
