His emergence in the western canon was an even more adventurous voyage.
His aim from the very beginning was to represent those realities as precisely as he could, never minimizing their destructive potential.
Life, he wrote early in his career, was uncompromising. It punished the fine and the foul impartially, taking its own grim time, choosing its own grim methods. In his attempts to render, and thus confront, the desolating facts of life, Hemingway was himself uncompromising.
He developed a subdued and stoic prose that betokened what he thought the only meaningful response to the inevitable ruin that time visits on everyone.
Through the exercise of control, individuals could confer grace and dignity on defeat, and though time would destroy it need not humiliate.
In the rituals of the arena, the bull would always die, and ultimately the bullfighter would too. The animal, however, would go down charging, whereas the fighter at his best performed a ceremony of courage, delicacy, and precision. Though neither would survive, neither would retreat from the confrontation with death.
Though much of the prose is as fine as ever, Hemingway, in remembering his early years in Paris, engages in nervous battle for first place among his writing contemporaries, those individuals whom with the passage of time had gained almost mythic stature.
In A Moveable Feast, however, Hemingway reduces these figures not by distortion of facts but by skillful placing of reductive emphases.
