Dimock, Wai Chee . AMST 246: HEMINGWAY, FITZGERALD, FAULKNER, Fall 2011 Yale OpenCourseWare: American Studies, Accessed 16/9/14 http://oyc.yale.edu/american-studies/amst-246/lecture-10 License: Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 license Professor Wai Chee Dimock introduces the class to Hemingway’s novel To Have and Have Not, which originally appeared as a series of short stories in Cosmopolitan and Esquire magazines. She focuses on Hemingway’s designation of taxanomic groups (“types”) by race, class, and sexuality, arguing that Hemingway’s switch of narrative perspectives throughout the course of the novel casts every character, even protagonist Harry Morgan, as a classifiable kind of human being.
