The Change of Hemingway’s Literary Style in the 1930s: A Response to Silvia Ammary
Responds to Ammary’s claims that Hemingway’s later self-reflexive work was ultimately a failure and stylistically dissimilar to his earlier texts. Müller argues that this stylistic difference, including shifts in length, wordiness, reflective quality, and theme, indicates Hemingway’s artistic growth. Focuses on “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber,” “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” For Whom the Bell Tolls, Across the River and into the Trees, and The Old Man and the Sea. See Ammary’s “The Road Not Taken in Hemingway’s ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’” in Connotations 18, nos. 1-3 (2008-2009): 123-38.
