Hemingway’s Art of Non-Fiction
Opens with an overview of Hemingway’s early journalistic career and its influence on his later nonfiction. Argues that while Hemingway blends fact with fiction in his nonfiction works, he leans toward the factual with the intent to create a “truthful account” with lasting value. Weber methodically analyzes Death in the Afternoon, Green Hills of Africa, the “African Journal,” The Dangerous Summer, and A Moveable Feast, focusing on their conception, composition, publication, and critical reception. In addition to discussing Hemingway’s narrative structure and design, Weber draws on manuscripts to explore the author’s composition and revision processes.
