About this book

Hemingway, Trauma and Masculinity: In the Garden of the Uncanny is at once a model of literary interpretation and a psycho-critical reading of Hemingway’s life and art. This book is a provocative and theoretically sophisticated inquiry into the traumatic origins of the creative impulse and the dynamics of identity formation in Hemingway. Building on a body of wound-theory scholarship, the book seeks to reconcile the tensions between opposing Hemingway camps, while moving beyond these rivalries into a broader analysis of the relationship between trauma, identity formation and art in Hemingway.

Reviews

“Stephen Gilbert Brown draws from his colossal knowledge of literature and psychology and blazes a new trail through Hemingway’s life and work. Brown is particularly nimble when analyzing the less prominent works, the dark corners of Hemingway’s career, which he mines to yield fascinating discoveries. Elegantly written and convincingly argued, Hemingway, Trauma, and Masculinity: In the Garden of the Uncanny becomes an indispensable text in future discussions of Hemingway and the trauma that underlies his work.” (Mark Cirino, Associate Professor of English, University of Evansville, USA)
