Peter A. Smith, "Hemingway's 'On the Quai at Smyrna' and the Universe of In Our Time." Studies in Short Fiction. 24:2 (Spring 1987). 159-62.
"The lack of critical response to "On the Quai at Smyrna" is especially puzzling in respect to the crucial position that it occupies in Hemingway's first major work. While this short story was not present in the original 1925 edition of In Our Time, it occupied the first position in the collection when it was re-issued by Scribner's in 1930. That the story had been added on to what Hemingway had claimed was a unified collection makes it noteworthy; that the addition of the story seems to disrupt the unified pattern of the 1925 edition makes a closer analysis of the story seem appropriate" (159).
