Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)Professor Wai Chee Dimock introduces the class to Hemingways novel To Have and Have Not, which originally appeared as a series of short stories in Cosmopolitan and Esquire magazines. She focuses on Hemingways designation of taxanomic groups ("types") by race, class, and sexuality, arguing that Hemingways switch of narrative perspectives throughout the course of the novel casts every character, even protagonist Harry Morgan, as a classifiable kind of human being. In her treatment of types, she shows how Hemingway draws thematic parallels between seemingly disparate racial types, complicating the dualism of "to have" and "have not" that appears in the title.Warning This lecture contains graphic content andor adult language that some viewers may find disturbing0000 - Chapter 1.
