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 and publication history, placement within the collection, and critical reception before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with Nick's final exchange with his son suggesting Nick's reconciliation with his father. Daiker demonstrates the story's interconnectedness with other Nick Adams stories, treats the father-son relationship and role of memories, and makes frequent biographical connections.
