Annotation

Code hero study reflecting on the novel and 1957 film version. Argues that Barnes is Hemingway’s alter-ego, searching for meaning and moral truth in a world devoid of God. Ferrell reads the novel as Hemingway’s personal journey as well as a mythological quest, drawing parallels between Barnes and Odysseus and Ashley and Circe.
