Annotation

Focuses on Hemingway’s thematic preoccupation with imminent death in his later work, marking the onset with Harry of “The Snows of Kilimanjaro.” Examines Robert Jordan of For Whom the Bell Tolls, Richard Cantwell of Across the River and into the Trees, and Santiago of The Old Man and the Sea as artists who prepare for their inevitable deaths by finishing their projects. For example, in Santiago’s case, he must bring in the fish.
