Becoming Fiction: Sarraute, Stein, Hemingway
Draws on the theories of “becoming” found in the work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari to discuss Nick’s process of postwar healing through the portal of nature in “Big Two-Hearted River.” Reads the details of the camp experience as a reflection of Nick’s interior landscape where the reader is invited through Hemingway’s minimalist language to experience the temporal components of the passing day.
