Annotation

Psychoanalytic examination focused on the transformative powers of memory and recollection, analyzing Nick Adams’s relationship with his father. Nakjavani argues that Nick’s vision of his father as a hunter is one of omnipotence, while his vision of him as a sexual being is one of powerlessness, simultaneously promoting for Nick the violence that hunting represents and spurring his desire to seek his own omnipotence sexually.
