Hemingway's Fetishism: Psychoanalysis and the Mirror of Manhood (1998) - Carl Eby [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. His distinctive writing style is characterized by economy and understatement and had a significant influence on the development of twentieth century fiction writing. Hemingway's protagonists are typically stoics, often seen as projections of his own character—men who must show "grace under pressure." Many of his works are considered classics in the canon of American literature. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway [Sept 2006]
Hemingway's Fetishism: Psychoanalysis and the Mirror of Manhood (1998) - Carl Eby
Nevertheless, I should note that the French psychoanalyst Janine Chasseguet-Smirgel has argued that a regressive anality is central to perversions. --page 281
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.
