Telling the Stories that Can't Be Told: Translating War in Hemingway, Vonnegut, and O'Brien poses an examination on the use of innovative literary techniques in three examples of twentieth century war literature: Ernest Hemingway's In Our Time, Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five, and Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. Among others, this thesis considers the use of modernist and post-modernist techniques, as well as the conscious articulation of literary genesis as a means of achieving authenticity in war literature.
