When Ernest Hemingway committed suicide in 1961 he left four unfinished works--A Moveable Feast, Islands in the Stream, The Garden of Eden, and an untitled work on his travels in Africa. The edited versions that have come down to readers and scholars of Hemingway appear as distinct, disjointed texts that fit oddly into his oeuvre. Through extensive literary detective work Burwell has uncovered substantial evidence that Hemingway in fact designed the three published works as a trilogy, what she terms "his own Portrait of the Artist."

Editorial Reviews

"Rose Marie Burwell's Hemingway: The Postwar Years and the Posthumous Novels is an engaging work of criticism that combines several modes into one. It is a critical biography of Hemingway; an interesting account of some years of Burwell's own archival detective work; and a provocative reading of Hemingway's posthumous novels, on one hand, and of Hemingway himself, on the other....Hemingway scholars should read this book." Canadian Review of Comparative Literature
