11 Jung Clifford, Stephen P. "Hemingway's Fragmentary Novel: Readers Writing The Hero In `In Our Time'." Hemingway Review 13.2 (1994): 12. Academic Search Premier. Web. 25 Feb. 2013. Stephen Clifford offers a solution to the difficult reading of In Our Time . He states how despite the fact that Nick’s perspective is a large part of Hemingway’s novel; it is not the most valuable one. He argues that it is ridiculous to assume the stories that have nothing to do with Nick are somehow all connected to him and his progression through adulthood. Clifford also disagrees in saying that Nick is a hero in some sort because he thinks that it forces us to assume certain qualities of him and fill in the gaps of the story that we do not know. The underlying argument is that just because Nick’s name happens to appear multiple times, does not mean that it is the same person over and over again. Although Clifford’s article was one which I had planned on using, he did not end up in my final draft of my paper. The main reason for this is because I could not find enough articles revolving mostly around the idea of Nick being a hero. Stephen Clifford is an assistant professor of English. He focuses most of his research and studies on modernism and narrative theory. He has a published book called Beyond the Heroic “I”: Reading Lawrence, Hemingway, and “Masculinity” .

12 In this very short article, Victor Kramer discusses Hemingway in a very general way. He gives a short biography about Hemingway summarizing his life including Hemingway’s most popular works of fiction. Kramer also includes Hemingway’s style of writing and the concept of the Hemingway hero that often appears throughout his novels. This particular article is very brief, clear and straight to the point. It gives a great summary of Hemingway without going into too much detail. I briefly mention Kramer in my paper when I used his definition of the Hemingway hero. Victor Kramer is a very esteemed author who has contributed to many academic journals and books. He also has several published books. Leigh, David J. "In Our Time: The Interchapters As Structural Guides To A Psychological Pattern." Studies In Short Fiction 12.1 (1975): 1-8. Academic Search Premier . Web. 23 Feb. 2013. David J. Leigh focuses his essay on the inter-chapters present in Hemingway’s In Our Time . Leigh is arguing that the shift between the stories and vignettes is a structural representation of the psychological aspect of the novel. He uses Nick as an example of this because of his experience with the war. Leigh divides his essay into three major parts. The first discusses the general layout of the stories themselves, the second talks about the connection between the stories and the inter-chapters, and the last, most extensive part, talks about Nick and Leigh’s idea of “existential neurosis”. The concluding point that Leigh makes is
