Harry Morgan’s Dismemberment and Hemingway’s Critique of Violence: To Have and Have Not
Sees Morgan as an emasculated antihero of the bourgeoisie. Reading gender as a social construct, Kwon contends that Hemingway is critiquing the cult of masculinity and violence found in the novel. Concludes that Morgan’s use of excessive violence eventually leads to the degeneration of his manhood rather than its regeneration.
