Linda Wagner and Decades of Criticism

Linda W. Wagner has edited four books of criticism on Ernest Hemingway through Michigan State University Press. I have finally received my fourth book today – Six Decades of Criticism and read a brief review by William Faulkner (p. 273) on Hemingway’s The Old Man and The Sea.
