Hemingway: Differing Treatment Of Men And Women

6 pages in length. Ernest Hemingway was as simple as he was complex. The lucid and uncomplicated images he created with his seemingly elementary style were anything but; in fact, the complexity that resides within his characteristically eloquent prose, which demonstrate a purity and precision like no other, are known only to those who can see beyond their façade. Attention to outer detail and an unquenchable desire to portray his inner pain, Hemingway favored a more simplistic approach to convey his view of women, portraying obvious empathy for his female characters, while his male characters and protagonists appear to be more self absorbed. In viewing the male/female relationships, as well as how men and women are depicted in Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants," "Up in Michigan" and "A Canary for One," the writer discusses how this says a great deal about Hemingway's own perception of women.

Ernest Hemingway's "The Sun Also Rises": Men And Women

10 pages in length. True to form in depicting a somewhat skewed perception of reality, females are one dimensional in the vast lot of Ernest Hemingway novels. This assertion has been noted by myriad critics, with one going so far as to say that Hemingway feels an obligation to introduce women, though he does not know what to do with them beyond taking them to bed. One novel in particular – "The Sun Also Rises" – brings forth much negativity between Brett and Jake, inasmuch as Brett cannot bring herself to overlook the unexpected impotence Jake experiences after the war. The detrimental impact that has upon Jake as a man and as an individual is enough to make him believe he is worthless as a human being. The domino effect of Brett's shallow perspective appears as a barrier between men and women throughout the novel, effectively dissolving any true intimacy between the sexes and ultimately compelling the men to bond to a much greater degree with their own gender rather than with the women.

Gender Characterization
