Annotation

Examination of Hemingway’s lengthy correspondence with the aging art critic, beginning in 1949 and ending just prior to Berenson’s death in 1956. Focuses on the dichotomy of Hemingway’s macho public image and the tender, insecure man shown in the letters. Offers insight into Hemingway’s Cuban years, desire to be recognized as an artist, and need for a father-figure. Includes information regarding his marriages to both Martha and Mary. Appendices list the history of correspondence between Hemingway and Berenson and the books in each man’s library by or about the other man.
