Ernest Hemingway

Ernest Hemingway

By Linda Wagner-Martin



Ernest Hemingway: A Literary Life includes new research on the best-known of the posthumous publications: A Moveable Feast, 1964 (and the 2009 A Moveable Feast: The Restored Edition) ; Islands in the Stream , 1970; and The Garden of Eden, 1986. Linda Wagner-Martin provides background and intertextual readings-particularly of the way Hemingway's unpublished stories ("Phillip Haines was a writer") and his fiction from Men Without Women and Winner Take Nothing interface with the memoir. The revised edition also highlights and provides background on Hemingway's treatment of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein, his life in Paris in the 1920s, and his connection to the poetry scene there-putting this in conversation with Mary Hemingway's edits of A Moveable Feast . The new chapters also illuminate the reception of Islands in the Stream and a new way of understanding the role of gender and androgyny in The Garden of Eden . On a whole, the book draws from extensive archival research, particularly correspondence of all four of Hemingway's wives.
