About the Authors
  • Ernest Hemingway's literary career was shaped by the remarkable contexts in which he lived, from the streets of suburban Chicago to the shores of the Caribbean islands, to the battlefields of WWI, Franco's Spain, and WWII. This volume examines the various geographic, political, social, and literary contexts through which Hemingway crystallized his unmistakable narrative voice. Written by forty-three experts in Hemingway studies, the comprehensive yet concise essays collected here explore how Hemingway is both a product and a critic of his times, touching on his relationship to matters of style, biography, letters, cinema, the arts, music, masculinity, sexuality, the environment, ethnicity and race, legacy, and women. Fans, students, and scholars of Hemingway will turn to this reference time and again for a fuller understanding of this iconic American author.

    • Provides the fullest introduction to Hemingway and his world found in a single volume
    • Offers contextual essays written on a range of topics by experts in Hemingway studies
    • Provides a highly useful reference work for scholarship as well as teaching, excellent for classes on Hemingway, modernism and American literature

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Moddelmog and del Gizzo have given us a concise, content-rich collection that functions as a one-volume seminar on the life and work of the author. The contributor’s list is a Who’s Who of Hemingway scholars and represents the most recent work being done in the field. Any student, scholar, or teacher of Hemingway will find something beneficial in this book; it is a testament to the contributors that the writing is accessible, lively, and informative … this collection is as close to a fully contextualized portrait of the author as we have. Ernest Hemingway in Context is a valuable contribution to this field; it gathers a variety of voices and viewpoints into a single, handsome volume that adds another level of depth to an already nuanced conversation. Regardless of their critical perspectives, newcomers and veterans alike will appreciate the range of topics and resources available in the text."
    Michael D. DuBose, The Hemingway Review
