Cirino publishes new book
Posted: Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Mark Cirino, associate professor of English and Melvin M. Peterson Endowed Chair in Literature, has published a new book, Reading Hemingway’s Across the River and into the Trees, as part of Kent State University Press’s “Reading Hemingway” series.
This book is a line-by-line annotation and commentary on Hemingway’s 1950 novel, the first scholarly book ever devoted to Hemingway’s inscrutable and maligned novel.
Cirino was a Global Scholar in 2012-13, which allowed him to travel to Venice to research the novel.
Several recent UE graduates contributed to the preparation of Cirino’s book as part of ENGL 399, Independent Study in Literature: Jenelle Clausen, Rachel Cochran, Nick Holder, Kevin Kay, Amanda Oaks, Natalie Updike, Samantha Urban, and Susan Vandagriff.
