Book Overview

An early gem from the greatest American writer of the twentieth century
First published in 1926, The Torrents of Spring is a hilarious parody of the Chicago school of literature. Poking fun at that "great race" of writers, it depicts a vogue that Hemingway himself refused to follow. In style and substance, The Torrents of Spring is a burlesque of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter, but in the course of the narrative, other literary tendencies associated with American and British writers akin to Anderson -- such as D. H. Lawrence, James Joyce, and John Dos Passos -- come in for satirical comment. A highly entertaining story, The Torrents of Spring offers a rare glimpse into Hemingway's early career as a storyteller and stylist.

    I chose to read this book for a college class on Michigan literature. It is an interesting read, short, at times confusing, and others funny. It is worth reading, considering though that Hemingway wrote it to break his contract with his publishers. It is defiantly not the best book ever, but still an important part in Hemingway's writing.
