Annotation

Influence Study. Contends that Hemingway’s exploration of human despair amid annihilation embodied in his “old-man” protagonist was influenced by American contemporaries, E. A. Robinson, Robert Frost, and Archibald MacLeish. Connects Hemingway to their poetry through their shared sense of living with dignity while saturated in nothingness.
