Hemingway At War
Explores the impact of Hemingway’s war experiences on his journalism and fiction. Drawing on dispatches from By-Line, Banerjee shows how battle imbued Hemingway with a strong aversion to war but a great reverence for the “fighting soldier” whom he considered a tragic hero. Argues that the author’s career as a war correspondent developed his disciplined, unimpassioned writing style and his belief in the inevitability of war and human tragedy.
