Kennedy, Gerald J. “Hemingway’s Gender Trouble.” American Literature 63, no. 2 (June 1991): 187-207.

Annotation

Comparison of gender in Hemingway’s posthumous works, A Moveable Feast and The Garden of Eden, as well as an inter-textual conversation about sexual ambiguity. Addresses androgyny as a controlling theme as well as the metacommentary on writing found in both works to discuss Hemingway’s feelings towards gender play. Concludes with a discussion of Hemingway’s own clandestine sexual exploration with Hadley based on an omitted sketch from A Moveable Feast and an analysis of the consequence of sexual ambivalence as a dissociative vehicle in The Garden of Eden.
