Annotation

Uses excerpts from “Indian Camp,” “A Canary for One,” and “Hills Like White Elephants” to chart the evolution of Hemingway’s dialogue. Argues that his innovations, most notably the use of repetitive and indirect dialogue to advance plot and develop characters, are among Hemingway’s greatest contributions to twentieth-century literature.
