Hemingway's "Big Two-Hearted River"

3 pages in length. Considered the most autobiographical of all his works, Hemingway's Big Two-Hearted River reflects upon the writer's never-ending quest to obtain spiritual peace amid an otherwise chaotic world. The absence of organized religion in his life notwithstanding, this spiritual expedition was always fulfilled when Hemingway was surrounded by nature, particularly deep see fishing, two of the primary literary components presented throughout the story. Hemingway's perpetual journey toward the neutralizing elements of 'getting back to nature' is mirrored in the values and actions of Nick Adams, the writer's protagonist whose validity of this search is manifested in such seemingly innocuous realities as settling in to "his home where he had made it" (Hemingway 29). Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Radical Innocence: Rebel Depiction

This 7 page paper argues that in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, the protagonist's character includes aspects that deny him the status of hero, but allow him the stature associated with martyrdom. In both Ellison's Invisible Man and Faulkner's Light In August, the social limitations (and brutalities) of race form the basis for the protagonist's journey to an acceptance of self over the acceptance of society. These three stories are analyzed in terms of Ihab Hassan's book, Radical Innocence. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
