Dangerous Masculinities

This chapter discusses more fully the history of the reception of Hemingway's representations of masculinity. The account presented in this chapter shows that the gradually emerging animus against Hemingway's narrative strategies is in many ways the key to this study because it shifts focus from his work to the interpretive approaches, and the historical and cultural conditions underpinning them. It also asks: why did Hemingway's early critics persist in deriving a concept of authentic manhood from narrative evidence that is by no means wholly in its favor?
