Annotation

Focuses on the construction of identity through place and displacement enacted through images of roads, cars, and driving. Draws on “The Strange Country” to exemplify Hemingway’s non-reliance on locality, emphasizing instead motion and the delight of the road. Contrasts Hemingway’s sense of displacement and preoccupation with the road to Faulkner’s strong association with a fixed location, theorizing that Hemingway was never a tourist but instead an “anachronous pilgrim.”
