The publication of The Garden of Eden in 1986 is now regarded as a major event in Hemingway studies, one that arguably reversed Hemingway's waning status within the academy. Despite significant critical attention to the novel on topics ranging from the ethics and politics of posthumous publication to Hemingway's "above the surface" treatment of gender and sexuality, there has been a dearth of essays about teaching The Garden of Eden. This special section about teaching The Garden of Eden includes an introduction by Suzanne Del Gizzo and five brief essays (by Linda Patterson Miller, Carl Eby, Jacqueline Vaught Brogan, Meryl Altman, and Debra Moddelmog respectively) offering glimpses of the diverse ways these scholars are using Garden in their classrooms.
