9780299286545: Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action (Studies in American Thought and Culture)

Ernest Hemingway’s groundbreaking prose style and examination of timeless themes made him one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. Yet in Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action, Mark Cirino observes, “Literary criticism has accused Hemingway of many things but thinking too deeply is not one of them.” Although much has been written about the author’s love of action—hunting, fishing, drinking, bullfighting, boxing, travel, and the moveable feast—Cirino looks at Hemingway’s focus on the modern mind, paralleling the interest in consciousness of such predecessors and contemporaries as Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, and Henry James. Hemingway, Cirino demonstrates, probes the ways his character’s minds respond when placed in urgent situations or when damaged by past traumas.
    In Cirino’s analysis of Hemingway’s work through this lens—including such celebrated classics as A Farewell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and “Big Two-Hearted River” and less-appreciated works including Islands in the Stream and “Because I Think Deeper”—an entirely different Hemingway hero emerges: intelligent, introspective, and ruminative.

Review:

“Cirino [...] collapses the distinction between thought and action that has traditionally typecast Hemingway as an anti-intellectual dolt—the ‘he-man’ of American literature.’”—Kirk Curnutt, author of Coffee with Hemingway

Book Description The University of Wisconsin Press Lond, Madison, Milwaukee and London. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 176 pages. Softcover. New book. LITERARY CRITICISM. A new look at Hemingway, revealing a concern with consciousness similar to his predecessors and contemporaries William Faulkner, James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Henry James, and Marcel Proust. Ernest Hemingway's groundbreaking prose style and examination of timeless themes made him one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. Yet in Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action, Mark Cirino observes "Literary criticism has accused Hemingway of many things but thinking too deeply is not one of them." Although much has been written abut the author's love of action - hunting, fishing, drinking, bullfighting, boxing, travel, and the moveable feast - Cirino looks at Hemingway's focus on the modern mind, paralleling the interest in the consciousness of such predecessors and contemporaries as Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, and Henry James. Hemingway, Cimino demonstrates, probes the ways his characters' minds respond when placed in urgent situations or when damaged by past traumas. In Cirino's analysis of Hemingway's work through his lens - including such celebrated classics as A Farewell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and "Big Two-Hearted River" and less-appreciated works including Islands in the Stream and "Because I Think Deeper" - an entirely different Hemingway hero emerges: intelligent, introspective and ruminative.
