Annotation

Close reading of the landscape imagery of “Big Two-Hearted River,” asserting that Nick Adams’s interactions with rural Michigan reveal Hemingway’s attempt to reconcile the world of autonomous women with a docile feminine landscape. Goes on to argue that Hemingway’s male characters’ efforts to control and dominate nature reflect a deep-seated preference for traditional masculine values, which is ultimately detrimental to both characters and the author himself.
