Annotation

Examines the tension between the idealist influences introduced by the priest and the nihilistic influences introduced by Rinaldi, arguing that the novel serves as Hemingway’s recognition that the world operates nihilistically. Concludes that Hemingway chose not to write about Oak Park because it seemed too idealistic once he experienced the chaos and indifference of the outside world.
