En daar is dan plots Hemingway - nog niet eens gepubliceerd, maar wel al in het gezelschap van Pound, Joyce, Ford M Ford, Anderson, Fitzgerald, als een van hen - daar zijn de stierengevechten, de skireizen en het boksen. Alles staat nu in het teken van het schrijven, - in elke brief geeft hij de stand van zaken - dit geschreven, dat gepubliceerd, die tekst klaar ... telkens weer herhaalt hij de titel van zijn (ene) boek, maar ook de lust om te leven, om te beleven. Nog steeds dat idioom van de Amerikaan, ergerlijk is ook het antisemitisme en het racistische taalgebruik, en bij sommige brieven zou je graag willen weten hoe beneveld de man was. Maar zijn passie is aanstekelijk, zijn schijnbare onvermoeibaarheid, zijn effici├źntie in het persklaar maken van een tijdschriftnummer, ... Lof van H voor Tolstoj - 'Oorlog en vrede' is het beste boek - en Toergenjev - de beste schrijver. (Tsjechov een amateur, met niet meer dan 6 goede verhalen). ( )

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway documents the life and creative development of a gifted artist and outsized personality whose work would both reflect and transform his times. Volume 2 (1923-1925) illuminates Hemingway's literary apprenticeship in the legendary milieu of expatriate Paris in the 1920s. We witness the development of his friendships with the likes of Sylvia Beach, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and John Dos Passos. Striving to 'make it new,' he emerges from the tutelage of Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein to forge a new style, gaining recognition as one of the most formidable talents of his generation. In this period, Hemingway publishes his first three books, including In Our Time (1925), and discovers a lifelong passion for Spain and the bullfight, quickly transforming his experiences into fiction as The Sun Also Rises (1926). The volume features many previously unpublished letters and a humorous sketch that was rejected by Vanity Fair.

"Hemingway described his artistic method as inventing from experience. In his letters we live in the country, meet the people, track the relationships, and witness events unfold that later he would forge into fiction. In a postscript to the 11 September 1925 letter to his mother telling of his novel in progress, Hemingway added a note about his wife: Hadley is better looking and huskier than ever. She's had her hair cut like a boys as all the chic people now and has several people in love with her including a very nice bull fighter named Nino de la Palma who dedicates bulls to her and gives her the ears. These are carefully saved in my handkerchiefs"--… (more)
