All Man! Hemingway, 1950s Men’s Magazines, and the Masculine Persona
Introduction to 1950s pulp men’s magazines focusing specifically on the popular image of Hemingway in relation to the development of postwar hypermasculinity and misogyny. Earle’s study “is not about Hemingway’s fiction but Hemingway himself as a fiction, as a popular representation, and as an innately visual image that grows out of twentieth-century mass media and the dynamics of midcentury gender.” Discusses Hemingway’s celebrity, both its rise and fall, beginning with the author’s earliest pulp fragments housed at the John F. Kennedy Library. Loaded with visually stunning full color illustrations.
