Annotation

Pedagogical approach briefly comparing Hemingway’s war descriptions to Willa Cather’s, noting their similarities of plot and striking descriptions of trauma. Concludes that Hemingway’s novel has more in common with Elizabeth Shepley Sergeant’s memoir (1920) than with Cather’s novel (1922).
