Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Salinger's path crossed Hemingway's in wartime Paris in August 1944 and on the road to Germany in September. Their momentous personal encounters were far more important to Salinger than Hemingway's literary influence. Salinger hero-worshipped Hemingway and regarded him as a confessional father figure. He saw the parallel between Hemingway's injury in World War I and his own war trauma. But there is only a thin record of Hemingway's direct comments on Salinger. Salinger's credulous biographers have always accepted his own self-enhancing viewpoint.
