(HEMINGWAY, Ernest). BAKER, Carlos. Hemingway : The Writer as Artist. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1952. First Edition. Pp [i]-xix,(1),-322. Index. 8vo, grey cloth, white lettering to black panel and red vignette to spine, top edge dyed orange. “This book offers the first full-length portrait of Hemingway as artist, stylist, and craftsman. It provides a close systematic analysis of his work in the novel, the short story, and other literary forms for the period 1920-1952. All the books are considered here, from the first apprentice work which Gertrude Stein examined in Paris in the early 1920's to The Old Man and the Sea, the new novelette of 1952. Although its stress and focus are critical rather than biographical, the process of analysis and evaluation is illuminated throughout by a detailed account of Hemingway's literary life.” - from the dj.
