Big Two-Hearted River



Character Profiles

Nick Adams: Nick is the main character, and in many ways is like Hemingway himself.  Nick travels into the forests of northern Michigan to find a release from civilization's agonizing bondage.  Setting up camp and fishing and cooking by himself, Nick lifts his spirits by creating his own personal utopia.

Hopkins: Nick alludes to Hopkins as he makes coffee, being reminded of his old fishing buddy and oil tycoon, who Hemingway suggests took his own life a few months before, after receiving a disturbing telegram, perhaps about his lover.  Hopkins' tragic story is but one example of the suffering and grief Nick hopes to leave behind him.
