DIVWith an Overview by Paul Smith and a Checklist to Hemingway Criticism, 1975a€“1990 New Critical Approaches to the Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway is an all-new sequel to Bensona€™s highly acclaimed 1975 book, which provided the first comprehensive anthology of criticism of Ernest Hemingwaya€™s masterful short stories. Since that time the availability of Hemingwaya€™s papers, coupled with new critical and theoretical approaches, has enlivened and enlarged the field of American literary studies. This companion volume reflects current scholarship and draws together essays that were either published during the past decade or written for this collection. The contributors interpret a variety of individual stories from a number of different critical points of viewa€”from a Lacanian reading of Hemingwaya€™s a€œAfter the Storma€ to a semiotic analysis of a€œA Very Short Storya€ to an historical-biographical analysis of a€œOld Man at the Bridge.a€ In identifying the short story as one of Hemingwaya€™s principal thematic and technical tools, this volume reaffirms a focus on the short story as Hemingwaya€™s best work. An overview essay covers Hemingway criticism published since the last volume, and the bibliographical checklist to Hemingway short fiction criticism, which covers 1975 to mid-1989, has doubled in size.
