Reviews:

From Publishers Weekly
They are a hugely readable dinner party, those 172 articles written via Hemingway for the Toronto megastar among early 1920 and overdue 1924. they vary from a laugh sketches of way of life in Toronto to firsthand and infrequently relatively lengthly reviews at the social and political scene in postwar Europe. even if the topics are Lloyd George's stopover at to Canada, the habit of ladies at prize-fights, Christmas in Paris, bullfighting in Pamplona, France's political woes, Mussolini's Fascists or Toronto's younger Communists, the items at all times convey Hemingway's services at digging out the proof, his uncanny clutch of debate and his shining simplicity of favor. in addition they include a shockingly robust portion of humor. here's Hemingway paradoxically understanding, expert in his craft and extremely awake, a literary apprentice who infrequently turns out an apprentice. November 18

From Library Journal
Hemingway undervalued his magazine ism, insisting it was once ``timely instead of permanent.'' yet the various 172 arti cles he wrote for the Toronto celebrity benefit consciousness and admiration. On assign ment in post-war Europe, Hemingway saw and absorbed some of the topics (war and love, braveness and sham, cruelty and injustice) that have been to form his fiction. His prose kind additionally started to think its designated rhythms and diction. numerous of those dispatches could reappear,shrewdly altered, as vi gnettes in In Our Time (the thrill of trout and tuna fishing; the wakeful ness of bullfighting as greater than sport``a very nice tragedy''). In by way of - line: Ernest Hemingway (Scribner, 1967), William White integrated merely 29 of those items. the whole version is such a lot welcome. Arthur Waldhorn, English Dept., urban Coll., CUNY

Sample text

It could even be argued that the concept of a ‘word’ is a result of a culture having a system of writing. Another implication is that anyone learning to read has to grasp the fact that writing is not like pictures. Literacy learners can find this difficult. Vygotsky suggested that learning written language ‘must be as much harder than oral speech for the child as algebra is harder than arithmetic’ (Vygotsky, 1962: 99). Individual language users have vocabularies of thousands of words, language communities many more.

There are endless possibilities for editing and polishing. It is almost easier to tinker with the text than leave it alone. When I have done as much as I wish, a touch of a virtual button produces a printed paper copy (or multiple copies if I wish) of a quality which only professional print shops could produce a few years ago. I see this page on screen virtually as readers see it now in its printed paper version (as wysiwyg – ‘what you see is what you get’). However, unlike all previous mark making systems in the history of writing I am not really making marks on anything at all.

These could include the ideas that the value of written language depends on what we want to do with it, that all texts can be read critically, that there are many genres, that literacy has a potential for liberation, that writing can aid thinking, that reading can be enjoyable, that public writing is for readers not writers, and so on. Almost all pronouncements about literacy – its nature, use, development, and how it should be taught – have now to be considered as provisional and temporary. Whatever we think or say about literacy is bound to be a reflection of our particular historical period with its technology and uses for written language.
