This thesis investigates the ways in which Ernest Hemingway explores the complex, fractured gender dynamics after they are severely impacted by post World War I anomie. Tracing the evolution of his erotic triangles, I note the manner in which Hemingway's work becomes progressively more transgressive. This thesis specifically examines "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," The Sun Also Rises, and The Garden of Eden.

This thesis is restricted to the Claremont Colleges current faculty, students, and staff.
