Ernest Hemingway: 1899-1961
Opens with a brief biography of Hemingway’s life from Oak Park to Ketchum and literary contributions, covering familiar ground. In quickly surveying the author’s critical reception, Overholtzer notes continued scholarly interest in the author and his public persona, iconic minimalist style, and thematic treatment of gender and sexuality. Reprints over twenty-five essays ranging from 1933 to 2015 by such well-known Hemingway scholars as Joseph M. Flora, Carl Eby, and Alex Vernon. Concludes with an annotated bibliography of further readings, including bibliographies, biographies, and criticism.
