Junkins, Donald. “‘Nothing Had Eaten Any Breakfast’: Point of View and Syntax in Ernest Hemingway’s ‘A Canary for One.’” North Dakota Quarterly 65, no. 3 (1998): 120-26.

Annotation

Analyzes the theme of “human breakage” and suffering through an examination of the story’s syntax and cryptic narration. Concludes that the emphasis on the psychological point of view of the wife, exemplified by omitted internalized emotion and broken sentences, makes her feelings central to the reader’s experience of the story.
