Annotation

Investigation of Hemingway’s criticism of American national identity found in the limited mindset and superficial nature of his characters in “Out of Season,” “A Canary for One,” and The Sun Also Rises. Concludes with an examination of Hemingway’s critique in “Banal Story” of middle-class America’s contentment with banality and sentimental idealism. Berman grounds his discussion in contemporary social criticism by Walter Lippmann and George Santayana, and draws on the language theories of Donald Davidson.
