Summary "It is, I think, the collective hope of us involved with this volume that--through its authors' collective experience, intellectual rigor, practical advice, conversational tone, sample syllabi, and enthusiastic encouragement--it inspires future generations of teachers to return to this iconically modernist novel so that students once again have the opportunity to understand its artistry for themselves."--The IntroductionThis first volume in the new Teaching Hemingway Series is a collection of richly nuanced, insightful, and innovative essays on teaching A Farewell to Arms from authors with varied backgrounds, including all levels of secondary and higher education. Read separately, the essays contribute to an enhanced understanding and appreciation of this master work. These seasoned instructors offer practical and creative classroom strategies, sample syllabi, and other teaching tools
