Ernest Hemingway’s In Our Time helped to create the idiom of modernist literature, which would go on to become the predominant literary aesthetic of the 20th century. Emerging from the world of the Parisian little magazines, Hemingway brought the literary avant-garde to mass popular audiences. In the process he defined an enduring cultural style and shaped our understanding of World War I as well as the modern world it seemed to epitomize. Examining Hemingway’s artistic influences and the historical context of In Our Time, we will try to understand why this slim volume turned out to have such a large impact.

Free Online Hemingway Course

There is actually a free online course on not only Ernest Hemingway but also William Faulkner and F. Scott Ftzgerald.  I know exciting right!  The course is offered by Yale University and it is titled 246: Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner.  The Professor is Wai Chee Dimock and the course consists of 25 lectures involving three of the greatest authors of our time.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Here is a second link that I found interesting on a story by Professor Wai Chee Dimock on Ernest Hemingway during his Paris years as well as a few other books.
