Nakjavani, Erik. “The Prose of Life: Lived Experience in the Fiction of Hemingway, Sartre and Beauvoir.” North Dakota Quarterly 70, no. 4 (Fall 2003): 140-65.

Annotation

Explores the intellectual bond between the three authors, demonstrating how Hemingway’s concept of lived experience (the belief that fiction should convey deep human truths) is reminiscent of Sartre’s and Simone de Beauvoir’s existentialism. Nakjavani explores Sartre’s conceptual formulation of lived experience, the centrality of the concept to Hemingway’s writing, and the roles of silence and omission as vehicles of lived experience in all three authors’ fiction. Very brief reference to chapter II of In Our Time.
