  • Contributor: Gaines, Boyd

    In late 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, and to the resilience of the human spirit, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War.
