Annotation

Argues that Hemingway’s writing about trout fishing while in Paris in the 1920s was instrumental in the development of his craft, especially his emphasis on memory, self-restoration, and sense of place. Discusses passages on writing in A Moveable Feast, Green Hills of Africa, The Garden of Eden, and the deleted coda from “Big Two-Hearted River” to show that Hemingway’s writing on trout fishing propelled his transition from journalism to fiction.
