Annotation

Close reading of the Botin’s restaurant scene within the context of the novel, arguing that Jake’s sobriety signals his determination to separate permanently from Brett, which makes for a quietly optimistic ending. Notes that Jake’s tolerance for alcohol matches that of his creator and that for Hemingway heavy drinking does not always equate with drunkenness.
