Read ↠ Green Hills of Africa 109 Re of the hunt and an impassioned portrait of the glory of the African landscape and of the beauty of a wilderness that was even then being threatened by the incursions of m Hemingway can be an irritating son of a bitch and this book is near the top of the here s why list A memoir of Hemingway s hunting expedition to East Africa an area I spent two weeks in recently Green Hills shows absolutely no awareness of the colonial history that structures the relations between the hunter and the numerous Africans who make his pleasure possible There are a few moments when Hemingway realizes that the men who accompany him are every bit as skilled and courageous as he is but those are surrounded by countless scenes where the white supremacy is simply embedded in the reporting What makes that doubly irritating is Hemingway s belief in his own honesty Yeah well Part of my response is no doubt tied to the fact that I m not a hunter My own experience of the wildlife of Tanzania was simple awe I didn t feel the slightest inclination to kill it I do understand that for Hemingway hunting involves an aesthetic of attention and care that parallels his approach to writing And it s clear that there s a good bit of irony in his portrait of himself as Great White Hunter he screws up roughly as many shots as he makes and he describes his feelings of shame but ultimately it all comes out as celebration Stylistically there are far too many moments when you can t tell the difference between Hemingway and Hemingway parodied Far from his best writingI was surprised to come across the famous passage often excerpted out of context in which Hemingway mediates on Huck Finn as the source of American literature It s a great set piece oddly situatedI m moving on to the short story collection The Snows of Kilimanjaro written after the experiences described in this book had some time to marinate
