In Our Time Discussion

Answer the following questions with regard the story you have been assigned. Note specific passages from the text to support your answers.


1. Style. How is the story told? Discuss the language, tone, and p.o.v. of the story. Why do you think Hemingway tells it as he does. How does style impact meaning and our response?

2. Plot. What happens in the story? What do we learn about the characters beyond what is said? What are their motivations?

3. Try to apply the elements of modernism to the story. Do you think it works as a good example of the movement? Why or why not?

4. What do you think the point of the story is? What do we learn?


**For next time, I want you to think about structure, as it applies to the entire text. Think about our discussion of the section and find others.

**Start to try to piece together the larger point of the book, beyond the stories. Think about the ways that they connect with one another and how they differ. Be prepared to discuss them.
