Annotation

Relies on Richard Rorty’s neopragmatic model and theories of ecocriticism to examine Harry’s cultural indifference and its ethical and ecocritical repercussions. Provides a close reading of the italicized flashbacks in “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” noting that Harry’s self-centeredness and apathy to his African surroundings cement his status as an outsider and prevent him from ever moving beyond his urban past in his failed bid for African salvation.
