Language: English . Brand New Book. Hemingway and the Black Renaissance, edited by Gary Edward Holcomb and Charles Scruggs, explores a conspicuously overlooked topic: Hemingway s wide-ranging influence on writers from the Harlem Renaissance to the present day. An observable who s who of black writers Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, Langston Hughes, Claude McKay, Wallace Thurman, Chester Himes, Alex la Guma, Derek Walcott, Gayl Jones, and more cite Hemingway as a vital influence. This inspiration extends from style, Hemingway s minimalist art, to themes of isolation and loneliness, the dilemma of the expatriate, and the terrifying experience of living in a time of war. The relationship, nevertheless, was not unilateral, as in the case of Jean Toomer s 1923 hybrid, short-story cycle Cane, which influenced Hemingway s collage-like 1925 In Our Time. Just as important as Hemingway s influence, indeed, is the complex intertextuality, the multilateral conversation, between Hemingway and key black writers. The diverse praises by black writers for Hemingway in fact signify that the white author s prose rises out of the same intensely American concerns that their own writings are formed on: the integrity of the human subject faced with social alienation, psychological violence, and psychic disillusionment. An understanding of this literary kinship ultimately initiates not only an appreciation of Hemingway s stimulus but also a perception of an insistent black presence at the core of Hemingway s writing.
