Annotation

Relying on reader-response criticism, De Fusco outlines her strategies for eliciting meaningful class discussions that lead to rich and varied writing projects. Declares that stories like “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” that deal with gender “can be a good gateway topic for classes who are ‘afraid to offend’ the teacher or each other.” Concludes that Hemingway’s stories work particularly well because of his subtle and economical writing style.
