Big Two-Hearted River – A Discussion with Jack Hickerson PhD
September 11 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Ernest Hemingway portrays his semi-autobiographical protagonist
Nick Adams as a suffering soul who has undergone some unnamed trauma. Whether we call Nick’s affliction “battle fatigue” “shell shock,” or “PTSD,” the perennial question is how does one cope with such distress?
Jack Hickerson, Professor Emeritus in literature from Southwest Minnesota State University will lead the discussion after viewing an hour of a longer film on Hemingway’s dynamic, complex, troubled, and rather short life.
