Writing the Iceberg: Hemingway, Camus—and Lawrence?
Comparison study situating Camus’s L‘Étranger 1942) and Lawrence’s “Sun” within the context of Hemingway’s theory of omission. Stoltzfus examines how each author’s work exhibits the tip of the iceberg while successfully conveying the submerged psychological and philosophical content found in their nonfiction writings such as Camus’s Le Mythe de Sisyphe (1942) and Lawrence’s Apocalypse (1931) and Sketches of Etruscan Places (1932). Stoltzfus focuses on Lawrence’s reworking of the iceberg principle in his story of the sensuousness of the cosmos. References The Sun Also Rises and “Big Two-Hearted River.”
