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 Jordans 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 Marias question "What hast thou?" 0000 - Chapter 1. A Womens War0440 - Chapter 2.
