  • Hemingway’s Use of Dialogue
    • An effective literary tool
    • The inset text of each new paragraph for each new speaker.
    • New speaker = new paragraph
    • The use of dialogue tags.
    • The use of double quotation marks around words, phrases, and passages spoken by each character.
  • Punctuation placement
    • within the quotation marks when the dialogue is followed by a dialogue tag.
    • If the words spoken are a complete thought and would normally be punctuated by a period, a comma is used to separate the dialogue and the dialogue tag.
    • When the words spoken form a question, a question mark is used inside the quotation marks.
    • The use of a period after the dialogue tag to mark the end of the sentence.
    • The tag is not punctuated or capitalized as a new sentence.
    • When the tag comes in the middle of a spoken sentence, the dialogue tag is punctuated by commas.
  • The Last Word
    • vary the dialogue tags
