Annotation

Reads the Paris portions as a microcosm for the novel, focusing on the destructive impact of Paris on the creative self. Argues that both Jake and Cohn only partially “fulfill the expatriate myth of creative renewal within the fecund freedom of the Paris moment.” Examines the central themes of unfulfilled desire and the ethic of payment within the expatriate experience, of the desperate search for compensation in exchange for paying one’s dues.
