Hemingway, The Garden of Eden, and Authenticity: A Post by Len Gutkin
“I hate the myth of Hemingway. And the reason I hate the myth of Hemingway: It obscures the man. And the man is much more interesting than the myth.” So says Michael Katakis, the manager of the Hemingway estate, toward the very beginning of Ken Burns’s and Lynn Novick’s (excellent) recent documentary, Hemingway, on PBS. It is hard to imagine a more incomprehending attitude toward Hemingway, for whom – as Hemingway shows itself to know perfectly well throughout – the “man” and the “myth” are entirely entwined.
