Annotation

Autobiographical study of the Nick Adams stories as Hemingway’s artistic response to the psychic traumas he experienced during childhood at the hands of his cold and insensitive parents. Broer concludes that in The Garden of Eden, Hemingway finally achieves the self-critical introspection necessary to admit his lifelong preoccupation with demonizing his mother and rationalizing his father’s failings, a courageous feat of consciousness allowing him to finally heal.
