Annotation

Explores Hemingway’s self-image as a prizefighter battling Ivan Turgenev, Guy de Maupassant, and Stendhal. Argues that Hemingway’s attempt to challenge these specific authors reflects the development of his literary values and goals. Briefly discusses Maupassant’s influence on “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber,” and “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” followed by a discussion of Hemingway’s goal to ‘defeat’ Stendhal through his writing of For Whom the Bell Tolls and Across the River and into the Trees.
