Annotation

Traces Hemingway’s pursuit of pleasure throughout his life and in his literature, arguing that the author indulged in worldly delights as a way of dealing with his depression. Suggests that Hemingway’s productivity may have declined after 1940 because his experience during World War II provided so much enjoyment and material that “his capacities were in danger of being permanently overwhelmed.” Draws evidence from The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Across the River and into the Trees.
