Annotation

Feminist-psychological approach exploring “the paralyzing effects of adolescent idealism and the repression of grief” in both Hemingway’s life and works. Examines how Hemingway’s artistic creation helped him to deal indirectly with expressing his feelings associated with the emotional pain that comes with growing up. Studies the early works in terms of the male protagonists’ inability to break from the mother and accept the disillusionments that are a normal part of maturing.
