Annotation

Examines Jenks’s editorial cuts, seeing them as turning Hemingway’s original African setting, a place free of the broader cultural constraints of the West, into a mere geographical backdrop “informed by conventional patriarchal heterosexual ideology.” Discusses the importance of the elephant story, “Africanization,” and the deletion of the phrase “tribal things.”
