Student Companion to Ernest Hemingway
Generalist approach situating Hemingway and his literary contributions within their cultural and historical contexts. Opens with a biographical sketch of Hemingway’s life and artistic achievements before moving into analyses of his major works, including In Our Time, The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea. Tyler also devotes significant attention to Hemingway’s short story collections, the African stories, and posthumous works. Provides plot synopses and examines character development, themes, and literary devices, attributing his innovative style to his early years as a reporter and modernism. Includes an index and extensive bibliography of criticism, biographies, and contemporary reviews.
