Annotation

Argues that Jake’s dive in The Sun Also Rises serves as an epiphany from which he gains the strength to confront his unhealthy relationship with Brett. Compares the swimming scenes before and after the dive, pointing out differences in the second scene and speculating on the importance of these changes. Refers to The Garden of Eden and “Summer People” as further evidence of Hemingway’s belief in swimming and diving as soul-clearing acts.
