Show Summary Details


In contrast with the previous chapter, this chapter examines the toll of relationships lost or severed during this period. Starting with his father's death shortly after Hemingway's arrival and continuing through the 1930s, his mercurial propensities made maintaining older alliances increasingly difficult. The 1930s began for Ernest Hemingway with a new hometown, a new wife, Pauline, a growing family, and a rising career. In his writing, he experimented with book-length nonfiction, drama, and magazine serialization as well as continuing his work with the short story and novel genres of his first professional phase. Hemingway's stature as a literary and popular figure was assured, but the downward spiral from personal and professional happiness to greater uncertainty in both arenas gained momentum.
