Hemingway’s Uncanny Beginnings
Examines how the setting and images of the opening chapter of A Farewell to Arms anticipates the novel’s doomed conclusion. Briefly draws on Freud’s theory of the uncanny to discuss Hemingway’s repressed fear of death. Excerpted from previously published Georgia Review 31, no. 2 (Summer 1977): 476-501.
