Annotation

Reads Hemingway’s depiction of Africa as an intentional farce meant to highlight the West’s naïve perception of Africa and Africa’s equally naïve perception of the West. Examines how Hemingway uses love, sex, marriage, African languages, and ecology to create satire in several works, including “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” and Under Kilimanjaro.
