Description de l'ouvrage

31 janvier 1996
When In Our Time was published in 1925, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and it earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein among the most promising American writers of that period. In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp," "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," "The Three Day Blow," and "The Battler," and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose -- enlivened by an car for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of heart.
Now recognized as one of the most original short story collections in twentieth-century literature, In Our Time provides a key to Hemingway's later works.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 IN OUR TIME 7 février 2004
Par Patrick - Publié sur
In Our Time is a great collection of Ernest Hemingway's early short stories, which he wrote when he was at his peak as a writer. I love the way he uses simple descriptions and dialogue to narrate them, giving a more natural feel to the stories. You can see his tough writing style beginning to show already at this point of his career. Most parts will be confusing to the novice reader because Hemingway really wants you to infer what the stories are about - he will not go right out and tell you. There really is no single theme to this whole book, but it basically shows how life was back in the 1920's. Many of Hemingway's works were based on his own experiences in life, which is very interesting. "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife" was based on the author's own father, who was, in Hemingway's mind, a coward. "Soldier's Home" is an excellent story of a distressed soldier coming home from The Great War. "A Very Short Story" was based on Hemingway's own romance with a nurse while he was overseas during the war. "Indian Camp" and "The Battler" are two of my favorites. It has been said that the character Nick Adams was really Hemingway, and when you read the Nick Adams stories along with a biography on Hemingway's life, it is easy to see why. Each story in this collection has a meaning unto itself, and I highly recommend that you read all of them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dazzling, perfectly crafted gems 15 avril 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
This is by far my favorite Hemingway. To the newcomer: please don't be fooled by the simple style and the often elliptical exposition. There is so much more here than is evident on a first reading. It takes a while to discover the complexity of Hemingway's themes and the emotional strings he pulls because his style is so spare, strong, and perfect. Like small, meticulously arranged blocks, with brilliant vignettes between them as mortar, he builds a stirring and often frightening image of the twentieth century. Everything is here--young love, political violence, adolescent confusion, social displacement, racial conflict, industrial hegemony and decline, every sort of relationship fissure.
Sometimes his genuis is almost eerie--read "Soldier's Home," and try to analyse how such basic words and sentences can weave such a poignant, aching emotional web. His work had an almost magical presence in those early years, before egotism and the media made him self-conscious.
Even if you are familiar with his more celebrated novels, read this collection and you will be overwhelmed by the beauty, power, and honesty of Hemingway at his best.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Simply the Master 13 février 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
These short pages contain simply (but less simply than some readers realize) some of the best short stories by an American writer in the entire twentieth century. Hemingway is certainly lauded enough by high-minded literary types, but it would be a mistake to assume that those are the only people that can enjoy him. It is tough to get a handle on what he is doing in this book, particularly because of the interchapers (which are NOT lead-ins to the stories following them, but a separate bit of impressionist writing of their own), but as in all great writing, the point is to make you ask yourself questions, not answer them for you. My personal favorite from this book (and maybe of any book by anybody) is "Soldier's Home" Hemingway's style, which is often criticized for being "too simple", thus ignorant, is to leave the most important details unsaid, letting the reader create most of the image in his or her mind. When in "Soldier's Home" Krebs' mother says "There can be no idle hands in God's Kingdom" Hemingway writes Krebs' reply as simply "I'm not in His kingdom." No description of his voice, no laying of scene, nothing but that pure powerful statement, which would have been ruined by a long dramatic monologue on the horrors of war. If you enter this book with an open mind, Hemingway won't disappoint. And you'll have plenty to argue about with your high-minded literary friends.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 In Our Time, a classic collection of short stories. 12 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur
In Our Time by Ernest Hemingway is a collection of short stories set amidst a time after the period of World War I. Several of Hemingway's early classics are included in this incredible novel such as "Indian Camp," "The Battler," and "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife." If the reader can look past the drinking scenes, each individual story presents a variety of characters, themes and plots, all of which deal with different aspects of life. His unique style of short, simple and declarative sentences enables easy reading for any person. Hemingway, as a man, writes with dignity and a genuine mansculine charm. The stories of love lost, relationships, nature and war are intense-- recommended In Our Time, a classic.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hemingway's Concept Album 12 janvier 2007
Par Bill Slocum - Publié sur
"In Our Time," the first published work of fiction by Ernest Hemingway, reads like a sketchpad at times, notes toward a novel. In fact, the seeds for two of Hemingway's earliest novels, "The Sun Also Rises" and "A Farewell To Arms," can be found here, but "In Our Time" works better than either of those classics when it comes to showing why Hemingway mattered, and still does.

Hemingway is a writer prized for his economic writing style, and he doesn't get more economical than here. The stories in this collection sometimes run just two or three pages, and are broken up by even briefer story nuggets that read like brushwork haikus.

Included are three of Hemingway's most celebrated shorts, "Soldier's Home," "Indian Camp," and "Big Two-Hearted River," but while these and a couple of others ("The Battler" "My Old Man") are gripping enough read alone, they really come alive here in tandem with "In Our Time's" other stories and anecdotes. The mood of "In Our Time" seems more important than any message, and is certainly easier to discern.

First published in 1925, "In Our Time" expresses a world-weariness typical of the generation that came home from the First World War, "The War To End All Wars," to find their glorious dreams and beliefs shattered. Cynicism was a newer thing in Hemingway's time, and harder for his generation to digest. Presenting himself in slightly fictionalized form as one Nick Adams, Hemingway looks backward to moments of nausea in his youth, bitter breakups and parental failures, before dealing with how the war itself left him shattered. Sometimes the lens of the book moves to characters other than Nick, but it never leaves aside that spirit of disillusion and loss.

"He did not want any consequences," he writes of Krebs, the protagonist of "Soldier's Home." "He did not want any consequences ever again."

Hemingway writes beautifully and sparingly throughout "In Our Time," showing generations of writers how much more effective an idea can be when a writer leaves it to a reader to work it out. No story better illustrates his singular command than "Big Two-Hearted River," an elegy and grace note in two parts for all that comes before, as Nick recaptures a sense of peace fishing for trout on a river. It's one of the longest stories, and may seem aimless to a first-time reader as it focuses on the nitty-gritty of Nick's routine, but the more you read it, the more drawn in you become, until you feel like you are on that river with Nick, plucking black grasshoppers off the tall grass.

People say Frank Sinatra did the first concept album with "In The Wee Small Hours," but it seems to me Hemingway had him beat by some 30 years with these tone poems of stunning narrative craft.
