Hemingway's Fetishism: Psychoanalysis and the Mirror of Manhoodby Carl P. Eby
Pub. Date: 12/28/1998
Publisher: State University of New York Press
Critics have long acknowledged Hemingway's lifelong erotic obsession with hair, but this book is the first to explain in a theoretically coherent manner why Hemingway was a fetishist and why we should care. Without reducing Hemingway's art to his psychosexuality, Eby demonstrates that when the fetish appears in Hemingway's fiction, it always does so with a retinue of attendant fantasies, themes, and symbols that are among the most prominent and important in Hemingway's work.
"Eby stands out as a particularly fine writer who has brought unfamiliar Hemingway materials together in creative conjunctions to illuminate the classic works. His critical savvy and sense of humor are very refreshing.
