Annotation

Giving historical background on the region, Svoboda notes that northern and upper Michigan, as actually experienced by Hemingway in his youth, were not the wild frontiers portrayed in the Nick Adams stories. Rather, Hemingway created those frontiers as compensation for not having any real wilderness to explore. Briefly examines “The Killers,” “The End of Something,” “Big Two-Hearted River,” and “The Battler.”
