This project examines the evolutions in stylistic use during the first major period of Ernest Hemingway's career, culminating in the 1929 publication of A Farewell to Arms. Drawing from source texts and secondary scholarship, this research shows the author's frequent mimicry of the styles of contemporary authors admired by Hemingway early in his career; especially Ring Lardner, Sherwood Anderson, Gertrude Stein, and James Joyce. Following side-by-side comparisons of Hemingway's works with those of his contemporaries, this project examines the specifics of the author's own writing style as it emerges out of the earlier, more imitative works. Having found other scholarship to be lacking in in-depth analyses of stylistic traits, this project heavily focuses on the grammatical and syntactical structures of examined texts for their effect on the expression of content.
