Epiphanic and Everyday Modernisms
After illustrating how time unfolds in Flaubert's L'Education Sentimentale (1869), Gingrich depicts Hemingway as inheritor of the French author's "interepisodic" narrative mode, an idea not precisely defined by discreet episodes or scenes. Describes the interplay and diffuse nature of scenic and summary moments in The Sun Also Rises. Explores other aspects of literary modernism, including the epiphany and narrative pace, as they appear in works by Joyce (the stories of Dubliners, 1914, especially "The Dead"), Mann, and Woolf, and in contrast with the realism of European novels of the 19th and 20th centuries.
