Abstract

Ernest Hemingway and Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen) never met, though they both coveted the Nobel Prize in 1954, the year Hemingway deservedly won it. But they had read each other, and both had been touched by Africa, where they moved in the same circles. The landscape and its people stamped itself on their literary imaginations, imbued with painterly visions indebted to Cézanne. The African continent provided both authors with a space for activities, relationships, and inspiration that allowed for reinvention of identities away from family histories, conventional sexuality, bourgeois restrictions, and cultural boundaries.
