"Nothing Had Eaten Any Breakfast": "A Canary for One"
Structural approach to the story as a numbers game among the characters in which a “metapattern of oppositions and doublings” cancel each other out. Examines a series of counterparts, contradictions, and complementarities within the characters’ actions and attitudes to show the ultimate loss for all. Also published as “Hemingway’s Canary for None: ‘A Canary for One” in Bearing Across: Studies in Literature and Science. Lanham, MD: International Scholars, 1999.
