War, Gender, and Ernest Hemingway

From: The Hemingway Review
Volume 22, Number 1, Fall 2002
pp. 34-55 | 10.1353/hem.2002.0004



Hemingway's war experiences contributed enormously and essentially to his sense of gender (however confused) such that studies of either war or gender in his life and work ought to consider the other. Cultural-historic constructions of the war-gender relationship very much informed Hemingway's own sensibilities and thus his fiction. Even in his work not directly about war, we should be able to read the war's presence through textual performances of gender. Texts the essay considers include "Big Two-Hearted River," A Farewell to Arms, "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," "Cross-Country Snow," and "An Alpine Idyll."
