Transcendentalism, Hemingway, American Literature
When thinking about Transcendentalism, most of us look solely to the 19th Century writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. In this paper I reject this static treatment of the movement by exploring Ernest Hemingway’s connection to nature both in his life and in his writings, and claim that he created a modern version of Transcendentalism in the early 20th Century.
