Annotation

Asserts that understanding Hemingway’s early unpublished story is key to a sound interpretation of sexual and artistic themes found in the much later The Garden of Eden. Beegel argues that the story’s focus on impotence, masturbation, and homosexuality offers the reader a glimpse into Hemingway’s professional and artistic anxiety and serves as the “dark antithesis” to “The Undefeated.” Also provides background on the real-life matador, Manuel Jimenez, on whom the protagonist is modeled.
