Annotation

Describes the positive effects of island living on Hemingway’s life and writing, particularly the remoteness and stability that helped him to resolve conflicting roles, including “artist as husband and father, artist as friend, artist as public figure, and artist as man of action.” Details his friendships with sporting and drinking companions during this era and the importance of his balancing writing and fishing. Passing references to works of the period, including A Farewell to Arms, Death in the Afternoon, Winner Take Nothing, and To Have and Have Not.
