Summaries and Reviews
Phillip Young revises his controversial 1952 criticism of the style and significance of Hemingway's novels description: Product Description:

For this new, enlarged edition of his 1952 study, Philip Young has for the first time related his extraordinary struggle with Hemingway and has answered as well such of his own critics as the TLS,which asked, "What will happen to Hemingway when he has read this book?" He has also recounted the years leading to the writer's death and extended his analysis to include Hemingway's posthumously published work, A Moveable Feast.

When first published, Mr. Young's book was described as "masterly" (London Tribune), "fascinating" (Pittsburgh Press), "wonderful" (Denver Post). In The Partisan Review Saul Bellow wrote: "an excellent book . . . not in the least academic, serious but not 'square.'" Granville Hicks in the Saturday Review wrote "a foreward and an afterword, both of the highest interest."
