Annotation

Advocating for the applicability of black feminist theory to the study of all literature, Ducille uses “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” as her test case. Surveys critical opinion on the story, noting the lack of interest in its racial dimensions. Contends that while Margot may be a victim of white patriarchy, she is also actively engaged in and benefits from that system of oppression. Concludes that Hemingway’s story of the rich, idle, and brutal is “an ugly example of what white privilege can do to those who waste it.”
