Phelan, James. “Narrative Discourse, Literary Character, and Ideology.” In Reading Narrative: Form, Ethics, Ideology, edited by James Phelan, 132-46. Columbus: Ohio State University Press, 1989.

Annotation

Narratological study of the ideology embedded in Ring Lardner’s “Haircut” and the character of Catherine Barkley in A Farewell to Arms. Contemplates Catherine’s mimetic, thematic, and synthetic dimensions to conclude that despite Hemingway’s sexist portrayal, she exemplifies a complex, contradictory character, serving both positive and negative thematic functions.
