Annotation

Interprets the novel’s numerous father-son relationships, particularly between Montoya and Jake Barnes, as a microcosm for the older generation’s misunderstanding and disappointment with the younger generation. Ponders Hemingway’s banishment from his family’s summer home, concluding that Jake’s reaction to authority reflects Hemingway’s oedipal feeling toward his father and rebellion against his parents.
