Annotation

Concerned with the critical arguments surrounding Harry’s artistic redemption. Moddelmog contends that in both “Snows” and “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber,” the white characters share imperialistic attitudes towards Africa and its inhabitants, thus subjecting them to domination. Concludes that their colonial relationship with the Africans is “made possible by national ideologies in which the subjugation of a foreign land and its people is seen as just and ethical.” Warns that as we examine the works for ourselves, we too must be aware of our limitations in constructing the ethical stance of the author.
