One Man Alone: Dimensions of Individuality and Categorization in To Have and Have Not
Argues that Hemingway’s categorization of people within the novel (often derogatory and disparaging) reveals the limitations of stereotyping, a common societal practice then and now. Identifies three potential heroes within the text (Harry Morgan, Professor MacWalsey, and Helen Gordon) because they accept responsibility for their actions and value human relationships. Significantly revised version published as “Dimensions of Love” in One Man Alone: Hemingway and “To Have and Have Not,” 113-30. Lanham, MD: University Press of America, 1999.
