Abstract

This thesis suggests that before Hemingway is a novelist of character or society, he is a novelist of place. It examines the concern for place in his work and the techniques he uses for the description of place. It further asserts that Green Hills of Africa is a sadly undervalued work in the canon, since it contains Hemingway's major statement at place. Finally, it maintains that Heminway's major concern was in capturing, through his art, a sense of place which could resist the ravages of time and man.
