Rearticulating Race and Gender via Species in Hemingway

(p.122) Chapter 4 Aficionados and Friend Killers
Animal Rites

This chapter examines the depiction of race, gender and species in the works of Ernest Hemingway, particularly “The Sun Also Rises” and “The Garden of Eden.” It aims to show that the current tendency to view modernism as the more or less retrograde forerunner of our own more progressive attitudes about race, gender, or species is self-flattering and (at best) only half right. This chapter also discusses observations about Hemingway's interest in cross-gender identification and transgressive play with gender codes.

Keywords:   Ernest Hemingway, race, gender, species, The Sun Also Rises, The Garden of Eden, modernism, cross-gender identification, gender codes
