Hemingway was famous for his code hero. The code was simple. Real men drank heavily, lusted after women, enjoyed bloodthirsty sports, and displayed no tolerance for homosexuality. They often suffer in silence-never is a hero prone to whining or tantrums. Angst is kept to a minimum!

The Hemingway Code Hero:
1. Exhibits grace under pressure. No matter how great the burden, the Hemingway hero never shows emotions or suffering.
2. Displays honor, courage, and endurance.
3. Is typically free-willed and an individualist.
4. The Hemingway hero dislikes the dark. It symbolises death and is a source of frear. The Hemingway hero will only show their fears in the dark.
