The Multiple Voices of Hemingway’s Complex Public Persona
This chapter refutes the critical commonplace that Hemingway's Esquire contributions suffer from an excessively macho presentation, insisting instead that the author crafted several different personae, including “teacher, insider, sportsman, celebrity, connoisseur, and artist.” Hemingway's Esquire canon exhibits and justifies a lifestyle and a career. It does so through the multiple voices of a complexly nuanced persona often very close to the “real” Ernest Hemingway. His key public testament in the decade of his greatest productivity, deepest personal growth, and widest range of self-expression, the Esquire essays merit continuing attention and a premier position among Hemingway's published writing during the Key West years.
