The Face in the Mirror: Hemingway’s Writers

Document Type



Fleming, Robert E. The Face in the Mirror: Hemingway’s Writers. Tuscaloosa: University of Alabama Press, 1994.


On Hemingway’s treatment of the writer and the problems he faces in pursuing his art in such fictional works as The Sun Also Rises, The Garden of Eden, The Fifth Column, Islands in the Stream, To Have and Have Not, and several short stories including “A Sea Change,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” “Mr. and Mrs. Elliot,” “A Banal Story,” “The Gambler, the Nun, and the Radio,” and “Get a Seeing-Eyed Dog.” Contends that Hemingway’s writers become more prominent and introspective as Hemingway matures. Sees “The Snows of Kilimanjaro” as his pivotal work, illustrating the author’s serious examination of his craft and predicting the direction of the posthumous works, which more fully engage the moral role of the artist and the price paid for one’s devotion to art.
