Annotation

Contends that the “indecipherable” nature of “Big Two-Hearted River” is answered through intertextual connections within the stories, not biographical detail. Nagel’s close examination of Nick’s trauma within In Our Time, previous “Nick” stories, and manuscripts demonstrates that the wounded Nick still suffers psychologically from past exposure to violence and death, and is seeking solace in therapeutic activity.
