Annotation

Explores Hemingway’s complex relationships with three women writers who participated in creating the Hemingway legend: Dorothy Parker, Lillian Hellman, and Martha Gellhorn. Sanderson discusses each woman’s impact on Hemingway’s public image and reputation and argues that their promotion of him contributed to their own identity as female writers. Sanderson concludes that their varied responses to Hemingway reinforced and “helped to define the aesthetics of twentieth-century American literature in gender-specific terms that privileged male work over female work.”
