Hemingway and the Beasts, by Jens Bjorneboe, is an essay exploring animal symbolism in Hemingway’s works.

Update (June 2020): When I originally published this post, it included a link to a Norwegian translation of Bjorneboe’s essay, which was hosted on someone’s AT&T personal webpage. That website has since disappeared and I have been unable to find another copy of the essay. Please let me know if you find one.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
