Annotation

Exploration of the culturally constructed masculine ideal found in “The Battler” and “Fifty Grand.” Asserts that Hemingway’s image of the boxer challenges the conventional view of autonomous masculinity, revealing it to be merely performance rather than true essence. Concludes that both stories demonstrate the impossibility of achieving a stable masculine identity.
