Annotation

Masculinity study tracing the roots of Hemingway’s modernist style to the “cowboy masculinity” of the late nineteenth-century dime-novel western. Worden explores how Death in the Afternoon serves as a guide for masculine self-fashioning, arguing that for Hemingway masculinity is a performance based on self-discipline and repetition.
