Situates constructions of masculinity and sexuality in Hemingway and his best-known male protagonists within the changing context of masculinity in the twentieth century. Discusses Hemingway’s portrayals of manhood such as the wounded hero, code hero, and solitary hero, along with the author’s recognition of homosexual lifestyles and exclusion of ethnic minorities. Focuses on The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls.
