Cinematic Fictions

This chapter examines the works of Ernest Hemingway, which emerged from a matrix of modernist experimentation wherein the nature of visual perception is explored. Hemingway presents the unique case of a writer who rarely commented on film and who deliberately avoided Hollywood, only becoming interested in film-making in the 1930s; yet whose work has long attracted commentary on his cinematic method. His earliest prose explored the modes of visual representation. A series of sketches called ‘Paris 1922’ was Hemingway's first attempt at blending journalistic reportage with the imagistic precision he had been learning from Gertrude Stein.
