Annotation

Illustrates a complicated connection between the two men rooted in the tradition of natural history. Claims Hemingway emulated Roosevelt’s use of the rhetorical tradition of natural history writing, characterized by precision, objectivity, and purposefulness. However, in considering Hemingway’s experiences with war and death, Clark asserts that the author was disillusioned by Roosevelt’s faith in the righteousness of war and invincibility of the manly individual.
