Dangerous Trips: War Tourism in Willa Cather’s One of Ours and Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms
Comparison study. De Biasio opens by contextualizing Hemingway’s well-known criticism of Cather’s outsider position as a woman writing about war before examining each novel’s use of tourist rhetoric and themes in commemorating World War I. In juxtaposing Claude Wheeler of Cather’s 1922 narrative with Frederic Henry, De Biasio concludes that though both are tourists, Henry’s insider position as an ambulance driver in the Italian army and ultimate rejection of the war mark his experiences as uniquely authentic.
