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.
