Annotation

Examines Nick’s gradual process of coming to terms with Helen’s pregnancy, arguing that the descriptions of skiing may also refer to the sexual act. Draws parallels between Nick’s struggle to maintain control in both skiing and making love to demonstrate how his awareness of sexual desire reflects his acceptance of Helen’s pregnancy.
