The second part of this book focuses on To Have and Have Not. The perceived flaws of Hemingway's third novel have been so elaborated upon that the elements that truly make it interesting, especially its historical and literary background, have garnered little if any attention. Noting that Sir Henry Morgan was a famous seventeenth-century pirate, this chapter explores the rich tradition of maritime piracy the novel intertextually engages, including Treasure Island, Peter Pan, The Pirates of Penzance, and many others.
