Ernest Hemingway’s groundbreaking prose style and examination of timeless themes made him one of the most important American writers of the twentieth century. Yet in Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action, Mark Cirino observes, “Literary criticism has accused Hemingway of many things but thinking too deeply is not one of them.” Although much has been written about the author’s love of action—hunting, fishing, drinking, bullfighting, boxing, travel, and the moveable feast—Cirino looks at Hemingway’s focus on the modern mind, paralleling the interest in consciousness of such predecessors and contemporaries as Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, and Henry James. Hemingway, Cirino demonstrates, probes the ways his character’s minds respond when placed in urgent situations or when damaged by past traumas. In Cirino’s analysis of Hemingway’s work through this lens—including such celebrated classics as A Farewell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and “Big Two-Hearted River” and less-appreciated works including Islands in the Stream and “Because I Think Deeper”—an entirely different Hemingway hero emerges: intelligent, introspective, and ruminative.
Hemingway scholar Arthur Waldhorn's lively, personal style and his clear-eyed view of Ernest Hemingway makes this book not just an exegesis for the scholar but for general readers as well.

These essays by British and American scholars begin with the introduction insisting that Hemingway's position in American letters is still in question and a later claim that Hemingway's life gets in the way of his art. They include an examination of the unity of In Our Time, the "wholeness" of For Whom the Bells Tolls, and a study of the short stories after In Our Time. The essays suggest that it is time to reread Hemingway and discover whether or not the thrill of reading him for the first time is recoverable. Other topics discussed are: Was Hemingway an intellectual? Was he nihilistic rather than creative in his vision of life? Was Hemingway's emphasis on cojones a measurement of his knowledge of existence? ISBN 0-389-20284-3 : $27.50.
