Annotation

Thematic study of transgender and gender identities in The Garden of Eden, addressing the difference between literal and figurative readings and the role of literalism. Rohy surveys transphobic responses by biographers and critics to the author’s male femininity and closes with an analysis of Hemingway’s discussion of his own femininity in passages from Mary’s safari diary.
