is In Our Time Ernest Hemingway's first American collection of short stories, published in 1925 by Boni & Liveright. Its title is derived from "Give peace in our time, O Lord" from the English . Hemingway first used the title for a collection of six nonfiction Book of Common Prayer vignettes of 75 to 187 words, commissioned by Ezra Pound for . He added 12 more vignettes for The Little Review in our time (with lower-case title), published in 1924 in Paris, about matadors, the Battle of Mons, the Greco-Turkish War and the execution of six Greek cabinet ministers. The 1925 New York collection combined these and fourteen newly written short stories, including " Indian Camp" and " Big Two-Hearted River", two of his best-known Nick Adams stories. He added " On the Quai at Smyrna" for the 1930 edition. The collection resonates with themes of alienation, loss, grief and separation, and includes descriptions of war, bullfighting and current events. It is the earliest Hemingway work to employ his iceberg theory of writing, in which the underlying meaning is hinted at, rather than explicitly stated. The volume attracted attention from reviewers and is an important work in his canon. ( ). Full article...
