- ItemThe Challenging of Gender and Sexual Politics in Ernest Hemingway's WorksGoodman, Noah MadduxSince the publication of his first novel, Ernest Hemingway has been deemed the “masculine hero” of the American literary canon. However, with the posthumous publication of The Garden of Eden in 1986, critics and scholars have made great efforts in re-analyzing his works in effort to extract a deeper level of understanding towards Hemingway’s ideologies towards gender and sexuality. In spite of his overtly masculine image, Hemingway was deeply intrigued by the idea of challenging conventional gender and sexual norms. Along with this, Hemingway is interested in the interplay between gender and trauma, as nearly all of his gender-bending characters suffer from traumatic experiences. By analyzing some of Hemingway’s most popular short stories and novels ranging from his first works to his last, we can see how Hemingway’s ideas towards gender and sexuality change over the course of his career.
