Annotation

Surveys Hemingway’s complicated fascination with birds in several texts, including Death in the Afternoon, Across the River and into the Trees, The Old Man and the Sea, and “In Another Country,” noting that the flight of birds is often associated with orgasm. Gajdusek uses “At Sea,” the third book of Islands of the Stream, to thematically explicate birds as prophesiers, arguing for their mythic and psychic importance to experiences of both life and death.
