Citation

Mariani, Giorgio. “Is Peace to War as Metonymy is to Metaphor? Some Thoughts on Crane, Hemingway, and the Mystery of Heroism.” In Red Badges of Courage: Wars and Conflicts in American Culture, edited by Biancamarie Pisapia, Ugo Rubeo, and Anna Scacchi, 183-91. Rome, Italy: Bulzoni, 1998.

Annotation

Comparison study. Draws on John Limon’s theories of war literature to show the complex relationship between war and peace in Crane’s “A Mystery of Heroism,” and to a lesser extent in A Farewell to Arms and chapter three of In Our Time. Concludes that Hemingway’s realistic style precludes an easy categorization of his rhetorical technique.
