Hemingway

Let’s wrap up


Biographical review

  • His style was plain and simple. It employed everyday language and realistic dialogue.

  • For the time, Hemingway's subject matter was also new and bold.

    • He wrote frankly about love, war, and death.

  • A central theme in Hemingway's work is how the individual fits into society, and how one should live in what often seems to be a crazy and difficult world


Existentialism : What it is and isn’t

  • Religious explanations :

    • Religious views believe that God had a concept in mind of what man, and the world, would be. Then he created man.

    • Thus, the concept (essence) came before man’s existence.

  • Existentialism is based on the position that there is no God that creates all things.

    • For existentialists, man’s existence is first. After man exists, he chooses his destiny (chooses to create).

    • Thus, existence precedes essence.


Examples of Existentialism

  • EXAMPLE : What is this?

  • EXAMPLE : How old are you?


Existentialism and hemingway

  • Existentialism –

    • emphasizes individual existence, freedom, and choice

    • influenced many diverse writers in the 19th and 20th centuries.

  • For existentialists, nothing is fixed. Choice is central to human existence, and it is inescapable; even the refusal to choose is a choice

  • For Hemingway, we are born into a world without purpose, order, or meaning.

  • When confronted with nada man must make a choice on how he will create his meaning.


It’s your choice

  • You can either choose to live a life of dignity where you face your uncertain future with the desire to “live it up”…

  • …Or you can fall into despair believing that there is nothing (nada) to live for and all is hopeless.
