Annotation

Focuses on the destabilizing influence of violence on language; situating Hemingway within the postwar modernist tradition by emphasizing his characters’ failures to successfully procreate or create. Privileges a reading of A Farewell to Arms, focusing on the dichotomies inherent in the relationships between humans, their equipment (e.g. tools and weapons) and the natural world, and how language is used to dissolve categorical distinctions and transmogrify one into its opposite.
