Annotation

Recounts details of the 1935 Florida hurricane, killing over six hundred World War I vets assigned there to build a highway. Contends that Hemingway’s anger over what he perceived as governmental negligence in the matter, as evidenced in his essay “Who Murdered the Vets?,” was misplaced. Also suggests that Hemingway’s criticism of the New Dealers should not be read as a political diatribe but rather as a “humanitarian expression, deeply colored by outrage and anger.”
