The Sun Also Rises: Hemingway’s Style and Narrative Technique Introduction As one of the most significant writers of the 20th century, possessing a unique style, Ernest Hemingway’s work rarely left one unmoved. While The New York Times said of The Sun Also Rises “No amount of analysis can convey the quality of The Sun Also Rises. It is a truly gripping story, told in a lean, hard, athletic narrative prose that puts more literary English to shame." (The New York Times 1926)”In other places it was not received as well.
John Ernest Steinbeck (1902 – 68) is one of the greatest American writers in the twentieth century and he is regarded as "quintessential American writer and his reputation extends worldwide" (Schultz and Li vii). He is "both a Pulitzer Prize winner and a Nobel Prize laureate" (Noble 3). In spite of being a modern writer and a contemporary of the literary giants such as Ernest Hemingway, Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner; Steinbeck was able to establish a unique position in American literature. The reason behind his success in establishing and maintaining such unique position is his fascination with literature; he "loved to write, because he was addicted to it …. He loved the words, the shape, the sound, the history of meaning; he delighted in the magical properties of language; he even got satisfaction from the touch of pencil and paper" (Benson 1).
Victorian writers can be divided in three categories: the early Victorians, the mid Victorians and the late Victorians. The early Victorians include William Makepeace Thackeray, who portrayed the upper-middle class as a cruel, ruthless society and Elizabeth Gaskell, who described the conflicts between workers and employers in industrial towns, but Charles Dickens is one of the most famous and outstanding authors from that period and is an example of an early Victorian writer. In his novels he often used realism as a way to deal with problems like poverty, homelessness and bad education. Despite these themes, his novels had almost always a happy ending, where good triumphs over evil. Charles Dickens was born in Hampshire in 1812, but grew up in London, where he was sent to work in a factory at the age of 12.
The Literary Works of Ernest Hemingway Ernest Hemingway is thought of as one of the greatest American writers of his era. A literature wizard of the prose style that became his signature,in 1954 he received a nobel prize in literature. Even though his writing structure is pleasant, he is a highly criticized writer, and his works bring upon a great amount of controversy. His wide variety of setting, plot, characters, and his emphasis on masculinity, as well as his short, objective language, have gave critics the idea that his stories are dark and empty. Other people say that beneath the emptiness there is a very unique and fictional background.
Readers young and old are rarely equivocal about this book -- it 's either love or hate. When I initially read the book, I was infuriated with the fact that Santiago wouldn’t let go of the fish. If he loved it as much as he said he did, he should’ve let it go. However, as I reflected, I began to fall in love with the book. In Santiago, Hemingway has created a hero who epitomizes honesty, bravery, endurance, and belief.
Less is More If a writer of prose knows enough of what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them. The dignity of movement of an ice-berg is due to only one-eighth of it being above water. A writer who omits things because he dose not know them only makes hollow places in his writing (Hemingway 192). Ernest Hemingway, a dominant figure in American minimalism, uses the concrete image of iceberg and figuratively indicates the art of omission—that is often employed as a technique to add depth into a story may seem superficial and incomplete on the surface. Although a number of prominent writers,

Similarly, ‘Island Man’ doesn’t have organization in its structure and is written in a free verse way. This could imply disorganisation. However this may reflect the feelings of the island man himself. Also, some words have been separated from the rest of the poem to, I believe, emphasise these pieces of text, which is a clever way to employ the technique of
