Reading Hemingway's Winner Take Nothing: Glossary and Commentary
This most recent addition to the Reading Hemingway series guides scholars and general readers alike through Hemingway's final collection of often overlooked short stories. Well-known scholars carefully explicate each story, annotating and commenting on familiar and obscure details and allusions to provide a comprehensive close reading of people, places, things, events, and other references. Entries are arranged chronologically as they appear in the story and correspond to page/line numbers of The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway: The Finca Vigía Edition for easy consultation. The introduction surveys the collection's mixed reviews along with Hemingway's frustration with contemporary critics. Notes "After the Storm," "Homage to Switzerland," and "Wine of Wyoming" among reviewer favorites. Includes index.
