Annotation

Drawing on the gender theories of Teresa de Lauretis, Clifford warns against biographical readings which reduce works to artifacts of the author’s life and calls for a critical recognition of the multiple perspectives found in Hemingway’s fiction. Clifford examines the ways in which the narratives of In Our Time, The Sun Also Rises, and A Farewell to Arms have been influenced by the construction of gender as well as by critical readers who deny other less central voices in the texts in their search for a single authoritative perspective. Concludes that the myth of Hemingway’s misogyny stems from his readers rather than his fiction.
