Annotation

Compares David Burkett of True North (2004) to Nick Adams of “Big Two-Hearted River,” focusing on their retreat to the wilderness in search of spiritual healing. Posits that their differing internal struggles (family-based guilt versus war reaction) reveal the true differentiation between the two texts regarding the immense societal changes occurring between World War I and the Vietnam War.
