Annotation

Applies theories of domestic violence to “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” to show Harry as the classic verbal abuser who is rewarded with a heavenward journey. Argues that later Hemingway texts depicting non-abusive deaths such as in To Have and Have Not and For Whom the Bell Tolls reveal the author’s growing embarrassment over the earlier story’s warped view of manliness.
