Annotation

Contends that while many have lamented Green Hills of Africa’s rhetorical excesses, scholars should in fact be reading Hemingway’s prose on Africa as a rhetorical performance considering the narrative’s basic themes of exploitation and wasteful consumption. Concludes that Hemingway’s rhetorical strategies foster a reevaluation of the nature of waste itself.
