Tyler Hoffman, a professor and chair of the English department at Rutgers–Camden, will explore two key stylistic devices that structure Hemingway’s writing: repetition and omission. He also will reveal what Hemingway learned from Gertrude Stein in Paris about literary method, what future minimalist writers learned from him, and what all of this has to do with icebergs.

This fall, the Rutgers–Camden Center for the Arts is participating in The Big Read for the fifth time, celebrating A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway. The center aims to connect approximately 2,000 New Jerseyeans to the book and to each other through a two-month celebration, featuring a lecture series, performances, art installation sites, storytelling workshops, and more.
