Hemingway and Faulkner: In Their Time
Compilation of four decades of commentary on and literary assessment of the two literary giants gathered from letters, interviews, and diaries by contemporary writers and critics, including Stein, Fitzgerald, Pound, Eliot, and Mencken. Entries are arranged chronologically and accompanied by editorial notes supplying information on the source’s often complicated relationship with the author. Begins with Sherwood Anderson’s 1925 praise of In Our time and closes with Hemingway’s and Faulkner’s tense reactions to one another. Includes a select bibliography of the works of peer contributors and index.
