Annotation

Traces the spiritual significance of Hemingway’s fishing scenes, from trout fishing in his early stories to saltwater game fishing in his later novels. Josephs links the author’s thematic preoccupation to the pristine natural world of the past and quest for meaning in the modern world. Concludes that the sport serves as the source for Hemingway’s art. Discusses “Now I Lay Me,” “Big Two-Hearted River,” The Sun Also Rises, Islands in the Stream, and others. Also published in Josephs’s On Hemingway and Spain: Essays & Reviews, 1979-2013, 452-72. Wickford, RI: New Street Communications, 2014.
