Seaton, James. “Was Hemingway an Intellectual?” Hemingway Review 10, no. 1 (Fall 1990): 52-56.

Annotation

Response to Paul Johnson, challenging his characterization of Hemingway as an intellectual possessing a code based on standard metaphysical ideology rather than a renunciation of traditional moral values. Explores the “holding attack” in For Whom the Bell Tolls, showing that Hemingway and his characters do not believe in “break-throughs” as Johnson suggests, but rather the conventional concepts of honor, loyalty, and courage. See Johnson’s “Hemingway: Portrait of the Artist as an Intellectual” in Commentary 87 (Feb. 1989): 49-59.
