The horror! The horror!

With no further ado, here is my paper on narrative techniques in Hemingway and that bible chapter (see previous entry). It is in Hebrew, alas. Also, to appreciate it, you should read Judges 13 and Hemingway's story (if you don't have it in print, apparently there's a copy on the Web, but I suspect it violates Hemingway's copyright) Hills Like White GiantsElephants.

Once you've read both, go ahead and click below. Then let me know what you think, either here or privately, as you wish. Please be honest. Oh, I apologize in advance for the ridiculous ending -- I hate it too, it was written at six a.m., I was young, I needed the money... -- but I'm linking to the paper as submitted (yesterday).

The horror.
