Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)
Professor Wai Chee Dimock concludes her discussion of For Whom the Bell Tolls by reading the novel as a narrative of dispossession and repossession. She argues that the rape of Maria, which takes place in front of a barbershop mirror, enacts one type of disempowerment; the end of Robert Jordan's life represents another, but with the potential for redemption. She shows how Jordan vacillates between a "have" and a "have not," depending on how ironically one understands Maria's question "What hast thou?"
