Ernest Miller Hemingway is known as the embodiment of the spirit of the United States, with his spirit of never giving up. During his life, Hemingway shaped numerous images of tough guy in his works,which has the profound influence on the development of American literature even in the 20th century literature of the whole world. With his spirit of never giving up as a tough guy, Hemingway himself and the images of tough guy in his works have affected generations of readers.

Actually, Hemingway is a creator of tragic heroism works. During the past decades, many scholars have studied his works on the tragic theme and heroic theme separately. Nevertheless, few scholars have analyzed his works combining both the heroism and tragic theme. Besides, the comparison of different tragic heroism hasn’t been shown. This paper analyzes the tragic heroism in Hemmingway’s novels via the analysis of the images of tragic hero in his two famous novels: For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man and the Sea. And by contrast of the two protagonists, this paper compares the similarity and difference of the tragic heroism in the two novels. At last, combining the analysis of the social environment of the “Lost Generation”, this paper obtains the central meaning of the tragic heroism in Hemingway’s novels. Thus, this paper deepens the understanding of the roots and meaning of tragic heroism in Hemingway’s novels.
