Annotation

Focusing on memory and the effects of nostalgia, Boker writes: “Hemingway becomes aware of his excessive dependency, this time upon nostalgic fantasy, as a way of making a final stand against the overwhelming encroachment of depression, loss, and grief on his personal and professional stability.” Treats A Moveable Feast, Across the River and into the Trees, Islands in the Stream, and The Garden of Eden.
