Sylvester, Bickford. “The Writer as l’homme engagé: Persona as Literary Device in Hemingway and Malraux.” Special Issue, North Dakota Quarterly 60, no. 2 (Spring 1992): 19-39.

Annotation

Examines how Hemingway and Malraux used their well-known public personas to manipulate audiences into trusting the historical accuracy of their writing and to give positive impressions of themselves as artists. Notes that Hemingway differed from Malraux in adding an “anti-intellectual” aesthetic to his artist-as-tough-guy persona, which contributed to the author’s commercial success. Brief references to Islands in the Stream, Across the River and into the Trees, The Old Man and the Sea, and others.
