Annotation

Looks beyond traditional and reductive readings of Maria and Pilar to find both women exemplifying the Hemingway code. Sinclair compares Maria’s wounds to those of Jake Barnes and Frederic Henry, while Pilar is shown to exhibit survival skills typical of a code hero. Sinclair also considers the function of androgyny and twinning in the relationship between Jordan and Maria to demonstrate the latter’s autonomy.
