Annotation

Explores Hemingway’s evolution from cub reporter to war correspondent to fiction/creative nonfiction writer. Emphasizes the connections between Hemingway’s techniques as a journalist and writer of literature, concluding that Hemingway challenges “the assumption on which both journalism and literary realism have traditionally based their claims to ‘truth’—that reality can be accurately represented.” Looks at work produced for The Trapeze (Hemingway’s high school student newspaper), Kansas City Star, Toronto Daily Star, as well as In Our Time, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Green Hills of Africa.
