Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246)

Professor Wai Chee Dimock continues her discussion of Hemingway's In Our Time, testing four additional clusters of chapters and vignettes. She offers readings of each cluster that focus on Hemingway's logics of expressivity, substitution, and emotional resilience. She concludes that Hemingway mixes tragedy and comedy as genres of writing to produce a humor that vacillates between irony and farce.
