Annotation

Review article of Kathleen Morgan’s Tales Plainly Told: The Eyewitness Narratives of Hemingway and Homer (1990). Argues that Morgan should have been comparing both Homer and Hemingway to the broad tradition of oral narrative to which both authors belong. Mellard goes on to discuss Hemingway’s adherence to the oral tradition’s dominant principles of economy and scope in The Old Man and the Sea.
