Annotation

Highlights how Jig’s exchange with her American lover echoes the dialogue between Milly and Susan in James’s The Wings of the Dove (1902) regarding Europe’s mythic symbolism. Argues that Hemingway presents Europe as an unchanging place of unlimited freedom, pleasurable action, and indifferent structure where Americans struggle to gain recognition.
