Annotation

Explores bisexuality, twinning, and oedipal fantasies in A Farewell to Arms and The Garden of Eden. Claims that “Hemingway’s creative process drew upon his bisexuality by using an interplay of his male and female identifications.” Fleisher ascribes these themes to Hemingway’s upbringing with a phallic mother and suggests that Hemingway’s well-known masculine image reflects his fantasy that he had no feminine identifications.
