Godden, Richard. “‘You’ve got to see it, feel it, smell it, hear it,’ buy it: Hemingway’s Commercial Forms.” In Fictions of Capital: The American Novel from James to Mailer, 39-77. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1990.

Annotation

Reads Hemingway’s writing style as “unknowingly saturated in the logic of consumerism.” Begins with a 1920s economic overview covering American labor history and manufacturing before moving into an analysis of “Big Two-Hearted River,” “Hills Like White Elephants,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” The Sun Also Rises, and A Farewell to Arms within the contexts of production and consumption.
