Sentencing: Hemingway’s Aesthetic
Striving for more than a stylistic analysis at the sentence level, Cain aims to explain the larger concept of Hemingway’s aesthetic, encompassing the author’s writing, art, and language. Focuses on Hemingway’s decisions to include, exclude, and revise sentences and the effects of those choices on the reader. Laments that Hemingway could not sustain his masterful aesthetic beyond the 1920s.
