Stoltzfus, Ben. “Ernest Hemingway: The Garden of Eden.” In Lacan and Literature: Purloined Pretexts, 90-102. Albany: State University of New York Press, 1996.

Annotation

Draws on Lacan’s theories to argue that Scribner’s published version foregrounds the novel’s conscious Freudian connections. Stoltzfus examines the oedipal narrative of castration, incest, and death lying just below the surface of the overlapping Africa and Riviera stories, concluding that David and Marita’s relationship at the end is a bliss filled rebirth signifying paradise regained. Previously published as “A Post-Lacanian Reading of Hemingway’s The Garden of Eden” in American Journal of Semiotics 5, nos. 3-4 (1987): 381-95.
