“Nothing is the great dread that threads Ernest Hemingway’s literary work. Most of his characters believe that nothing awaits them at death. Their machismo is a stance that both accepts and defies life’s collapse into nothing. For Hemingway, it is Christ crucified and not Christ resurrected that holds interest. His work demonstrates that this world leaves each human, ultimately, alone.”
