Annotation

Influence study on how each author adapted Hemingway’s existential theme of “a man alone” in their post-Harlem Renaissance writings. Scruggs focuses on their efforts to define their own independent places in American fiction through revision of Hemingway’s themes of violence, loneliness, and search for refuge found in “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” “The Killers,” In Our Time, A Farewell to Arms, and To Have and Have Not.
