Cirino, Mark and Susan Vandagriff, eds. Reading Hemingway's Winner Take Nothing: Glossary and Commentary. Kent, OH: Kent State UP, 2021.

Annotation

Annotates and comments on familiar and obscure details and allusions to the people, places, things, events, and other references found in the story. Opens with a discussion of the story's composition history and critical reception before moving into an explication beginning with the title and closing with the story's employment of stream of consciousness in the final lines, noting its use in other works such as A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Topics covered include Hemingway's relationship with Dr. Logan Clendening, who sent him the reader's letter used in the story, and background information on venereal disease for U.S. servicemen in China during the period.
