Plath, James. “On a Fairy’s Wing: Hints of Fitzgerald in Hemingway’s ‘The Butterfly and the Tank.’” Journal of the Short Story in English 43 (Autumn 2004): 75-85.

Annotation

Recapping Hemingway’s turbulent relationship with Fitzgerald and drawing on A Moveable Feast and The Fifth Column, Plath reads the story’s characters as composites of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald. Speculates that the story is Hemingway’s indirect attempt to confront Fitzgerald about his poor, alcohol induced behavior in Paris.
