Annotation

Draws on William James’s philosophical theories, arguing that Jamesion pragmatism helps the reader to understand several elements of the novel, including Frederic’s emphasis on physical description in his narration and the complex love affair between Frederic and Catherine. Concludes that pragmatism is a helpful interpretive framework for all of Hemingway’s fiction.
