Annotation

Contends that Hemingway’s gender-confused upbringing led him to create three habitual epistemological formulas: textual perplexity (confusing circumstances), lexical riddle (word ambiguity), and extratextual reversal (stereotype inversion). Gives brief references to numerous stories illustrating the three principles, with an extended analysis of “The Mother of a Queen” exemplifying all three.
