‘Nothing is Sure’: An Exploration of Post-War Gender Dynamics Through Hemingway’s Use of the Erotic TriangleHughes, Julia S 01 April 2013 (has links)
As much as the characters themselves, the Hemingway Text grapples with the instability of modern gender relations, unsure of what how to function within this newly disillusioned existence. Jake Barnes, the protagonist of The Sun Also Rises, speaks to this overwhelming need to find news way of living: “I did not care what it was all about. All I wanted to know was how to live in it. Maybe if you found out how to live in it if you learned from what it was all about” (152). Repeatedly, these works struggle to reconcile the unmanned masculine figure, unable to fulfill the Code, with the New Woman, radical in her inherent transgression of traditional values.

The focus of this essay is to investigate homosociality in terms of ethnicity in Ernest Hemingway's 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises. The main method used in the investigative analysis is close reading of the novel, and the essay relates this close reading to theories expressed in a number of critical essays and articles regarding the novel itself and other subjects relevant to the analysis. Furthermore, the relationships between the main character and other male characters are compared. The main findings of this essay are that homosociality is a central theme in Hemingway's novel and that homosocial desire often decides how the main character Jake Barnes reacts to the statements and actions of other characters. Furthermore, the amount of homosocial desire aimed at one character is most often decided by the ethnicity of that character.
In his book The American Adam, R. W. B. Lewis suggests that the Adamic tradition accounts for the vitality of the large body of American fiction of the nineteenth century. It is my contention that Lewis' thesis can be applied to the fiction of Ernest Hemingway. After a brief discussion of the main tenets of Lewis' thesis, I would like to explore the way Hemingway makes use of the Adamic myth in his five major novels.
