Pollack-Pelzner, Daniel. “Swiping Stein: The Ambivalence of Hemingway Parodies.” Hemingway Review 30, no. 1 (Fall 2010): 69-82.

Annotation

Draws on excerpts from A Moveable Feast, as well as Hemingway’s personal letters, to demonstrate the author’s uncertainty in parodying Gertrude Stein in The Torrents of the Spring, “My Own Life,” and the unpublished “The Autobiography of Alice B. Hemingway.” Pollack-Pelzner attributes Hemingway’s ambivalence to parody’s literary dependence on the object of its criticism, thus calling into question Hemingway’s ability to achieve independence from his old mentor. Also, briefly discusses Hemingway’s parody of Sherwood Anderson.
