His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, 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, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingways statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingways last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John OHara in The New York Times Book Review to call him the most important author since Shakespeare.
