Annotation

Argues that the opening passage of the short story represents a vivid metaphor comparing the loggers’ destruction of trees and the economy of Horton’s Bay to Nick’s destruction of his relationship with Marjorie. Contends that Hemingway considered men’s sexual exploitation of women analogous to the logging industry’s desecration of northern Michigan.
