Annotation

Refutes popular readings of Hemingway as a nihilist and fair-weather Catholic, pointing to the strong Catholic sentiment running throughout For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea, and “Today is Friday” as affirmation of the author’s devotion. Prud’homme characterizes the code of the Hemingway Catholic Hero and argues for its continued relevance to contemporary masculine values. Notes differences between Hemingway’s depiction of Christ and portrayals found in Mel Gibson’s film The Passion of the Christ and the Promise Keepers movement.
