Annotation

Treats fishing in The Old Man and the Sea, Islands in the Stream, and “Big Two-Hearted River,” arguing that man’s interdependent relationship with the natural world, as portrayed through these three fishermen, serves as a grounding force against the encroaching dangers of the modern world. Concludes that only by establishing a connection with nature and nurturing the natural order can Hemingway’s protagonists find strength and fulfillment as they struggle against great loss.
