Annotation

Recaps the plotline of the early manuscript, characterizing Davis as the main character who struggles to heal the division between his artistic and personal lives. Fleming hypothesizes that the thematic shift away from the difficulties of the writer in the final version may have reflected Hemingway’s wish to avoid having the work considered autobiographical, contending that the vulnerable, troubled writer of the holograph manuscript may have paralleled too closely Hemingway’s own anguished condition.
