The Bones of the Others: The Hemingway Text from the Lost Manuscripts to the Posthumous Novels
Using manuscript and archival materials, published texts, and posthumous novels, Justice reconstructs the recursive nature of Hemingway’s creative process and evolution from “personal” writer to professional author to uncover the fluid relationships between his texts. Justice situates Hemingway’s works within their biographical context, arguing that he relied on memory to revisit his earliest short fiction in the later The Garden of Eden. Connects her discussion to his concerns about authorship and publication found in Death in the Afternoon. Justice’s examination underscores the interdependent nature of Hemingway’s canon and necessity of reading his works intertextually. Includes an appendix laying out current theoretical debates on authorship and textuality, endnotes, and index.
