Annotation

Catalogues possible models for the story’s main characters (including Philip Percival, Pauline Pfeiffer, and Hemingway himself) along with literary sources. Notes parallels in plot and characterization with Luigi Pirandello’s novel, Quaderni di Serafino Gubbio Operatore (1915). Provides a psychoanalytic reading of Wilson as the idealized father-figure, Macomber as the immature son, and Margot as “the mother-imago of the infantile scenario, emotionally cold, controlling, intrusive.”
