Annotation

Annotates and comments, often line by line, on familiar and obscure details and allusions to the people, places, things, events, and other references found in the story. Opens with a discussion of the story's composition history, critical reception, and relationship to other stories in and outside the collection before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with the story's ironic final line relating back to its title. Covers topics such as Hemingway's employment of Western conventions and thematic treatment of gender and sexuality.
