A Discourse Study of the Iceberg Principle in A Farewell to Arms
The iceberg principle (also know as the “Principle of Omission”) is a term used to describe the writing style of the American writer—Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), who compares his principle on writing to an iceberg. The principle is well presented in A Farewell to Arms, where much of the content has been omitted, leaving the readers to explore it through their logical thinking and imagination.
