Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and "Thank You for the Light"
Reads Fitzgerald’s recently published vignette as a counterstatement to the themes of loneliness and alienation found in Hemingway’s “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place.” Argues that unlike Hemingway’s old man, the protagonist of Fitzgerald’s story has found purpose, companionship, and light at the end of the story.
