Annotation

Identifies exemplary qualities such as freshness of style and subject matter and an unorthodox worldview in his examination of “Big Two-Hearted River,” Chekhov’s “Lady with the Dog,” and Crane’s “An Illusion in Red and White.” Highlights how Hemingway's style, rhythm, and pace mirror Nick’s psychic state.
