The Least, The Most: Hemingway’s writing style

Qin YU

Abstract



Hemingway’s style of writing is striking, he is skillful in using the “pause” and is considered as a master of the “pause” in literature. Hemingway, in contrast to romantic writers, puts stress on restraint and understatement. The most powerful effect comes from them. People feel overtones in his description of scenes, in his characters’ actions, in the dialogues and also in his psychological portraying. Hemingway’s spirit is under the silent surface, and his pause has the sense of beauty.
Key words: pause, restraint, understatement
