Annotation

Discusses the central themes of authorship and publication, concluding that the work presents “Hemingway’s lover’s quarrel with his profession.” Justice uncovers how the Author/Old lady dialogues critique the exchange between a writer and the public voices that professionalize him. Justice contends that the dialogues distinguish the author, who has become biased through his experience, from the writer, who remains true to his art.
