- Current Bibliography
[The current bibliography aspires to include all serious contributions to Hemingway scholarship. Given the substantial quantity of significant critical work appearing on Hemingway's life and writings annually, inconsequential items from the popular press have been omitted to facilitate the distinction of important developments and trends in the field. Annotations for articles appearing in The Hemingway Review have been omitted due to the immediate availability of abstracts introducing each issue. Kelli Larson welcomes your assistance in keeping this feature current. Please send reprints, clippings, and photocopies of articles, as well as notices of new books, directly to Larson at the University of St. Thomas, 333 JRC, 2115 Summit Avenue, St. Paul, MN 55105-1096.

[On EH's life in Cuba. Brasch provides a context for his 1981 Hemingway's Library: A Composite Record, a catalogue of EH's immense library at the Finca Vigía (now available on line from the John F. Kennedy Library). Surveys those volumes devoted to poetry and art (Ezra Pound, T.S. Eliot, Charles Baudelaire, Lord Byron, Paul Cézanne and others) to reveal the breadth of Hemingway's intellectual curiosity and suggests that "knowledge, not experience, was the source of invention." Interviews with EH's personal physician and friend Dr. José Luis Herrera Sotolongo describe EH's activities during the Spanish Civil War and sympathy for the Cuban Revolution. Examines EH's correspondence with Malcom Cowley and Bernard Berenson, reconstructing his complicated relationship with each man and revealing the depths of his loneliness while living in Cuba. Concludes with logs of their correspondence and an inventory of books [End Page 129] by and about EH in Berenson's personal library. Relies on previously published material.]
[Collection of reprinted excerpts ranging from 1952 through 2007 on gender issues by such well-known Hemingway scholars as Carlos Baker, Debra A. Moddelmog, Nancy R. Comley and Robert Scholes. Geared to young adult readers.]
[Introduction to 1950s pulp men's magazines focusing specifically on the popular image of EH in relation to the development of postwar hypermasculinity and misogyny. Earle's study "is not about Hemingway's fiction but Hemingway himself as a fiction, as a popular representation, and as an innately visual image that grows out of twentieth-century mass media and the dynamics of midcentury gender." Discusses EH's celebrity, both its rise and fall, beginning with the author's earliest pulp fragments housed at the John F. Kennedy Library. Loaded with visually stunning full color illustrations.]
[Explores EH's early summers spent in the Little Traverse Bay area of Northern Michigan and the profound influence of the region on his later work. Provides an historical context, tracing the region's dramatic evolution from rural lumbering tract to vacation hotspot in the early 1900s. Combines over 250 black-and-white photographs, maps, illustrations, and postcards along with commentaries and excerpts from EH's stories, letters, and journals to create a picture of the people and places of Northern Michigan that serve as backdrop for so many of his writings.]
[Surveys the teaching, reception, and influence of EH's works in Bangladesh and India from 1971 to 2006, revealing the growing interest in EH studies in the Indian sub-continent. Opens with a brief overview of American and British criticism before moving into a survey of Indian and Bangladeshi criticism on EH's short stories and novels and the challenges specific to teaching American literature in Bangladesh and India. Closes with an assessment of EH's reputation and continued relevance among academics...
