First published in 1926, The Torrents of Spring is a hilarious parody of the Chicago school of literature. Poking fun at that great race of writers, it depicts a vogue that Hemingway himself refused to follow. In style and substance, The Torrents of Spring is a burlesque of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter, but in the course of the narrative, other literary tendencies associated with American and British writers akin to Andersonsuch as D. H. Lawrence, James Joyce, and John Dos Passoscome in for satirical comment. A highly entertaining story, The Torrents of Spring offers a rare glimpse into Hemingway's early career as a storyteller and stylist. [This edition is in Portuguese.]
