Pursuit Remembered: Experience, Memory, and Invention in Green Hills of Africa
Opens with a survey of the book’s negative contemporary reception before moving into a discussion of Hemingway’s imaginative transformation of memory into a meditation on self and nature. Martin writes: “Despite his declaration about ‘an absolutely true book,’ Green Hills of Africa is about its narrator-actor’s emotional state, and its mode is frequently lyric.”
