Hemingway’s Nick Adams

At the time of his death in 1961, Ernest Hemingway was for many literary observers a burned-out case whose artistic reputation had declined since the 1940s and 1950s. But, according to Joseph Flora, Hemingway’s artistic reputation is secure, and scholarly and public interest in Hemingway is due in part to his stories about his literary alter ego, Nick Adams.

At the time of this interview, Flora was professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He is the author of Hemingway’s Nick Adams (1982), and coeditor of Southern Writers: A Biographical Dictionary (1979).

This edition of Soundings was conducted by Wayne J. Pond.
