what were they after
What were they after?
  • Debunking delusions
    • Remember Gatsby? The “rock of the world on the wing of a fairy”? This sentiment was seeping into many aspects of philosophy, psychology, art, music, literature, baking, etc.
  • Something(s) about American life at the times was disguising life as it truly was.

  • What do we know about Hemingway? What do we think we know?
  • Remember our conversation about book titles for Gatsby. What does the title The Sun Also Rises conjure in your mind? How does it hit you as a jumping off point for this text? In what direction, as a reader, is it pointing you?
  • Consider the cover art
  • Page 99 analysis
hemingway s iceberg theory
Hemingway’s “Iceberg Theory”

“I always try to write on the principle of the iceberg. There is seven - eighths of it under water for every part that shows . Anything you know you can eliminate and it only strengthens your iceberg. It is the part that doesn’t show.”

  • How this translates to Hemingway’s style is an almost complete absence of sentimentality.
hemingway s iceberg theory1
Hemingway’s “Iceberg Theory”
  • Observe pgs. 46-47 from “She must have been…”
    • It appears to be a pretty heated exchange, although it is without the cues that let the reader know exactly what is happening, cues like “he said angrily” or “I replied apologetically” or “I knew I should have laid off but felt the urge to keep prodding.”
    • Hemingway makes us do the work to fill in the gaps here? What do you think?
  • Now observe pg. 118 from “’I saw you out…’”
    • It appears they’re joking/teasing each other but none of that language is there…
