Hemingway’s To Have and Have Not is divided into three parts, each of which follows Harry Morgan as the main character. The first part is narrated by Harry in the first person, while the other two have third-person narrators whose language and attitude are very close to Harry’s.
Why did Hemingway do this? Is the first-person Part I an artifact of the original short story that it’s adapted from? Why didn’t Hemingway stick with that for the other parts of the book?
