Annotation

Discusses Hemingway’s suicide in the context of Camus’s existentialist thought in The Myth of Sisyphus (1942). Analyzing Hemingway’s beliefs on achievement, life, and death found in Green Hills of Africa, Death in the Afternoon, and “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” Stoltzfus posits that, considering his debilitating illness and inability to continue writing, Hemingway’s suicide can be interpreted as an act of courage and control.
