(Like Chandler and so many others, Beattie has specifically mentioned Hemingway as an inspiration, specifically the inter-chapter vignettes from In Our Time.) Raymond Carver's down-and-out drunks could hardly be less heroic, and yet the use of diction and syntax in his masterly short stories is profoundly indebted to Hemingway.
Frederick Barthelme continues to craft stories and novels in an intentionally flat, unadorned voice about largely ineffectual men (and sexy, aggressive women) living in the so-called New South.

The Hemingway Character Ernest Hemingway has been called the twentieth century's most influential writer.Then he went big-game hunting or deep-sea fishing, or to the bullfights.Today, Hemingway's thematic influence is a victim of its own success.The most visible example of his influence in this area has been Norman Mailer.Though Mailer's often baroque style could hardly be more different from Hemingway's (an exception is the laconic "non-fiction novel" The Executioner's Song, which many critics consider Mailer's best book), he seems to have modeled his life after Hemingway's, seeking fistfights, serial wives (Hemingway had four, Mailer six), and "Papa"-like celebrity in general.If you need help locating material for your current research activity, please contact me through information provided in the right column.Here is the link to the Research Guides homepage (where you can search for a specific guide), and a list of some other research guides that may be useful to your research: Academic libraries that use the Library of Congress Classification Outline (the majority of them) can easily be browsed for serendipitous discovery of wonderful books in your subject area.Thus, Hemingway heroes like Frederic Henry stoically accept not only war wounds, but the pain of losing whom they love, as well.(Think of Henry walking into the rain after the agonizing death of his lover and child at the conclusion of A Farewell to Arms.) Whether handling firearms, betting on horses, or ordering wine, they are almost scarily adept at what they do, and when the universe conspires to defeat them, they never complain.Especially after reading A Farewell to Arms, Hemingway's influence is easy to discern in an enormous number of the writers who have followed him.This influence has taken three forms: thematic, stylistic, and the "Papa" Hemingway lifestyle.
