Cabrera Infante and Parody: Tracking Hemingway in Tres tristes tigres
Discusses Infante’s parody of Hemingway’s style, content, and technique through comic inversion, re-contextualization, and mimicry. Contends that Infante’s dual purpose was to humorously dethrone the literary giant and rid himself of Hemingway’s influence. Brief references to several of Hemingway’s works, including Islands in the Stream, To Have and Have Not, and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
