Annotation

Drawing on biographies, correspondence, and other archives, Beall investigates Hemingway’s reading of an unbound press copy of Ulysses sent to him by Beach at Joyce’s request. Beall refutes the widely held opinion that Hemingway was uninterested in Ulysses (1922), providing evidence that he read over two-thirds of the novel. Points to a passage in “Cat in the Rain” and Hemingway’s inscription of A Farewell to Arms to the author as evidence of Joyce’s influence on the young writer and calls for a fuller examination of the subject.
