Annotation

Surveys the teaching, reception, and influence of Hemingway’s works in Bangladesh and India from 1971 to 2006, revealing the growing interest in Hemingway studies in the Indian subcontinent. Opens with a brief overview of American and British criticism before moving into a survey of Indian and Bangladeshi criticism on Hemingway’s short stories and novels and the challenges specific to teaching American literature in Bangladesh and India. Closes with an assessment of Hemingway’s reputation and continued relevance among academics, critics, students, and general readers, especially in the aftermath of September 11, 2001. Concludes that Hemingway “has become an honorary citizen-author of postwar Bangladesh and India.” Examines several short stories as well as The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea.
