"[Hemingway’s] first full-length novel and probably his best, closely rivaled by To Have and Have Not. Its success was so enormous that it may be said to have ended Hemingway’s influence as a writer. After it one could no more imitate that musical crystal-clear style; blown like glass from the white-heat of violence" (Cyril Connolly, The Modern Movement, 60).
