Teaching Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms

Hemingway Studies, Literature & Literary Criticism, Teaching Hemingway


“It is, I think, the collective hope of us involved with this volume that—through its authors’ collective experience, intellectual rigor, practical advice, conversational tone, sample syllabi, and enthusiastic encouragement—it inspires future generations of teachers to return to this iconically modernist novel so that students once again have the opportunity to understand its artistry for themselves.”—from the Introduction
