Annotation

Outlines her methodology for class discussion based on a close reading of the novel’s famous passage on the distortion of abstract words during wartime. Covers topics such as technological warfare, medieval chivalry, and courtly love to show how such an examination can help students, especially those unaccustomed to Hemingway’s aesthetics of omission, comprehend the rest of the novel, particularly themes of male self-realization in love and war and the nature of war itself.
