It will be the purpose of this study to begin such a consideration by treating but one aspect of Hemingway’s art, that of the relationship between Hemingway’s view of the world, as seen in his short stories, and the diction he uses to create this fictional world. In effect, the problem resolves itself around these three basic questions: (1) What is the world like that Hemingway creates in his short stories?; (2) What is the diction like that he uses to portray this world?; and finally and most importantly, (3) How well suited is the diction for revealing Hemingway’s fictional world? I.e., is there an organic relationship between this basic element of style and vision.
