Annotation

Comparison study, analyzing how Hemingway transformed his 1922 springtime visit to Chamby into four separate literary pieces reflecting his increasing guilt over his betrayal of Hadley. Notes that in all four flower passages (“Fishing the Rhone Canal,” Green Hills of Africa, African Journal, and A Moveable Feast), Hadley is marginalized and silenced by the guilt-ridden narrator. Yet by the final version of A Moveable Feast, “Hemingway enables us to resurrect the voice he had so desperately needed to silence, the voice that leads us to understand the flower narratives as consistently and painfully self-incriminating.”
