Miller, Paul W. “Anti-Heroic Theme and Structure in Midwestern World War I Novels from Cather to Hemingway.” MidAmerica 23 (1996): 99-108.

Annotation

Compares the portrayal of World War I in A Farewell to Arms to Cather’s One of Ours (1922), claiming both depict modern warfare without glory or true heroism. Argues Hemingway was influenced by and improved upon Cather’s style and bipolar structure, despite his claims that her novel should not be taken seriously. Also includes examinations of Thomas Boyd’s Through the Wheat (1922) and James Stevens’s Mattock (1927).
