Across the River and into the Trees

( 10 )

Overview

In the fall of 1948 Hemingway spent several months in Italy on his first extended visit to that country in 30 years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES.

It is the poignant story of Richard Cantwell, an American officer haunted by his experiences in WW II, and a young Italian countess. She kindles in him the hope of renewal. Hemingway wrote with such force and vividness that the book seemed to cast a ...

Overview

In the fall of 1948 Hemingway spent several months in Italy on his first extended visit to that country in 30 years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for ACROSS THE RIVER AND INTO THE TREES.

It is the poignant story of Richard Cantwell, an American officer haunted by his experiences in WW II, and a young Italian countess. She kindles in him the hope of renewal. Hemingway wrote with such force and vividness that the book seemed to cast a shadow ahead, and indeed it was the last of his full-length novels published in his lifetime.

Reviewing the book in The New York Times, John O'Hara was moved to call Hemingway "the most important author since Shakespeare."

    a stunning narration of this classic tale

    Surely one of Ernest Hemingway's most memorable novels, Across the River and Into the Trees, is the touching story of love that comes too late. First released in 1950 the novel covers three days in the life of Cantwell, a retired Army officer. He is now 50-years-old and has returned to the place where he nearly lost his life during World War II. Cantwell is a bitter man, feeling that he was unfairly demoted after losing a major part of his brigade during a forest battle. He was actually following orders, and believes the Army simply needed someone to blame and chose him. He spends his time in Venice dictating his memoirs, railing against top brass - Eisenhower, Patton, Montgomery. He also becomes involved in a love affair with a 19-year-old girl. This character is said to be based, at least in part, on a young girl Hemingway met when he visited Venice in 1948. For those unfamiliar with the story, there'll be no spoilers here by revealing the ending. Suffice it to say it is both moving and memorable. It's thrilling to hear voice performer Boyd Gaines read. The opening lines 'They started two hours before daylight, and at first, it was not necessary to break the ice across the canal as other boats had gone on ahead.' set the stage for a remarkable performance. Gaines is an experienced award-winning stage, film, and television performer, and he brings this wide range of experience to his audio narration resulting in a stunning rendition of this classic tale. - Gail Cooke

    A must read!

    This book has always received some criticism. Many say that because it is from his later years, that it did not contain the fire his earlier books had. I completely disagree. I mark this as a perfect example of his style. A hard man's inner struggle to accept and show something he does not understand. Love. The Colonel knows he has reached the end of his life, and you are introduced to his final love, and by the end of this book I loved her too. For a lover of action, this book may not be the best, but for any romantic, such as myself, you will not be able to leave the characters for long, and you will not be able to let them go for even longer. This is a book for anyone who is a lover of beauty and romance.

    Not so good......

    I found this to be boring and the narrator just about put me to sleep. Actually I guess it was not his fault, there was not much of a story to tell! The explanation of the book sounded like it would be exciting, but it was not.

    Lacking Some of Hemingway's Magic

    While this book starts out showing Hemingway's talent for description, it becomes boring and almost loses its way. Not a dreadful book by any means but definitely not one of Hemingway's best.

    Moving

    Almost all of Hemingway's tales include the loss of love, hope, and/or life. His novels are very well written but can be depressing. This novel was written in his later years and I think the hard-lived colonel it details is a depiction of Hemingway himself. He must have felt that his life was soon over and he learned to love at all the wrong times. The book was excellent however and did a worthy job of capturing average simple conversions in a colloquial type of manner.
