Annotation

On the visual quality of Hemingway’s terse prose, arguing that his minimal use of detail is American by nature and provides a model for contemporary authors to write about contemporary issues. Briefly discusses “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” The Sun Also Rises, Across the River and into the Trees, and The Old Man and the Sea, with frequent comparisons to Emerson and his notion of the transparent eyeball.
