Abstract:

"In 1925, Ernest Hemingway wrote to F. Scott Fitzgerald that "the reason you are so sore you missed the war is because the war is the best subject of all. It groups the maximum of material and speeds up the action and brings out all sorts of stuff that normally you have to wait a lifetime to get." Though a world war veteran for seven years, at the time he wrote Fitzgerald, Hemingway had barely scratched the surface of his war experiences in his writing, yet it would be a subject he could never resist. As an eyewitness to the emergence of modern warfare, through the Second World War, and as a writer devoted to re-creating experience on the page, Ernest Hemingway has gifted us with an oeuvre of wartime representation ideal for the classroom. Teaching Hemingway and War offers fifteen original essays on Hemingway's relationship to war with a variety of instructional settings in mind, and the contributors bring to the volume a range of experience, backgrounds, and approaches. The final section provides three excellent undergraduate essays as examples of what students are capable of producing and as contributions to Hemingway studies in their own right"--Back cover.
