I’m teaching two classes at Emory this week on Ernest Hemingway. The theme of the course is “writing about literature” and the syllabus is full of books and stories about war. My talks will focus on “Big Two-Hearted River.” It’s probably my favorite Hemingway story, in part because of its setting in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Also, it’s a fish story. And a war story.
A little more than a year ago, I wrote about it in the Wall Street Journal.
