Annotation

Close rhetorical analysis of Hemingway’s 1935 Esquire essay, a humorous satire written in part in response to being treated as a Key West tourist attraction. Explores the historical and biographical contexts of the essay, and focuses on Hemingway’s desire to promote his work over his celebrity to reestablish his flagging artistic reputation.
