Hemingway Understood Years Later

Author Leonard Kriegel, On Men and Manhood (1979) said the following about Hemingway:

“His life does not serve our needs today. In the current drift toward a unisex culture, Hemingway has been demoted to being one of the enemy. But in the future, after our gender battles have quieted down, we may again be able to put him to use. He may, after all, be able to help us approach one of the problems we are probably never going to get rid of – exactly what it is we mean by manhood.”
