About the Author

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in the family home in Oak Park, Ill., on July 21, 1899. In high school, Hemingway enjoyed working on The Trapeze, his school newspaper, where he wrote his first articles. Upon graduation in the spring of 1917, Hemingway took a job as a cub reporter for the Kansas show more City Star. After a short stint in the U.S. Army as a volunteer Red Cross ambulance driver in Italy, Hemingway moved to Paris, and it was here that Hemingway began his well-documented career as a novelist. Hemingway's first collection of short stories and vignettes, entitled In Our Time, was published in 1925. His first major novel, The Sun Also Rises, the story of American and English expatriates in Paris and on excursion to Pamplona, immediately established him as one of the great prose stylists and preeminent writers of his time. In this book, Hemingway quotes Gertrude Stein, "You are all a lost generation," thereby labeling himself and other expatriate writers, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, T.S. Eliot, and Ford Madox Ford. Other novels written by Hemingway include: A Farewell To Arms, the story, based in part on Hemingway's life, of an American ambulance driver on the Italian front and his passion for a beautiful English nurse; For Whom the Bell Tolls, the story of an American who fought, loved, and died with the guerrillas in the mountains of Spain; and To Have and Have Not, about an honest man forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West. Non-fiction includes Green Hills of Africa, Hemingway's lyrical journal of a month on safari in East Africa; and A Moveable Feast, his recollections of Paris in the Roaring 20s. In 1954, Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature for his novella, The Old Man and the Sea. A year after being hospitalized for uncontrolled high blood pressure, liver disease, diabetes, and depression, Hemingway committed suicide on July 2, 1961, in Ketchum, Idaho.

Short biography
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American journalist, novelist, short-story writer, and sportsman. His economical and understated style—which he termed the iceberg theory—had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his adventurous lifestyle and his public image brought him admiration from later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and he won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short-story collections, and two nonfiction works. Three of his novels, four short-story collections, and three nonfiction works were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature.

Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school, he was a reporter for a few months for The Kansas City Star before leaving for the Italian Front to enlist as an ambulance driver in World War I. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929).

In 1921, Hemingway married Hadley Richardson, the first of four wives. They moved to Paris where he worked as a foreign correspondent and fell under the influence of the modernist writers and artists of the 1920s' "Lost Generation" expatriate community. His debut novel The Sun Also Rises was published in 1926. He divorced Richardson in 1927 and married Pauline Pfeiffer; they divorced after he returned from the Spanish Civil War, where he had been a journalist. He based For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) on his experience there. Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940; they separated after he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II. He was present with the troops as a journalist at the Normandy landings and the liberation of Paris.

Hemingway maintained permanent residences in Key West, Florida (in the 1930s) and Cuba (in the 1940s and 1950s). He almost died in 1954 after plane crashes on successive days; injuries left him in pain and ill health for much of the rest of his life. In 1959, he bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho, where, in mid-1961, he ended his own life.

Reviews

A collection of quotes from Hemingway on writing. A hard charger in all respects he was particular intense and dogmatic about writing. The story is what is important and what you must do is write and re-write and what you should write is what you know. This sums it up. He also wanted to be the best and he worked hard at it.

In general, Hemingway is a favorite author of mine. He doesn't mince words. Never too many words. He paints clear pictures as he writes and I like that. He does this in A Farewell to Arms, but in a manner that I found repetitious and long-winded. The dialogue is stinted and, IMHO, silly. It had been forty years since I last read this book and quite honestly was excited to read it again. Rereading a book after so long is often very close to reading it again. I was disappointed. I think because I didn't truly know what I was reading.
The description of the WWI battles in Italy towards the end of the war (1917) were very good. His description of what the men were going through, what their lives were like, is wonderfully put but the dialogue is what bogs it down. I began to simply scan over the dialogue as it was the descriptive pieces that were enjoyable- if describing the rough life of those on the front line assisting the wounded could be called wonderful!
Of course, this book, at is core, is about the love between Henry and Catherine, which to me seemed a bit forced at first. Again it was the dialogue between them that I found unrealistic, there was no depth between these two characters. It actually wasn't until the last third of the book that I began to believe in their love for one another. It was their stay in Switzerland, towards the end of the. book that I noted a tenderness that he had for her. And it literally wasn't until the last two or three pages that I even realized why he wrote the story the way he did. Perhaps if I had fully realized the type of memoire this book was/is, I would have enjoyed it more. The ending was tragic but it is the last paragraph that caused me to understand the book.
Even at that, though, I feel it is not his best work- even though I know it was a huge international success at the time. It is not a book I will recommend unless I am able to tell a bit of why I believe it was written in the way it was.
It is a memoire of a man during about 2 years of his life at the end of WWI who is writing in a stream of consciousness not just an event that redefined him as a person, but the events leading up to that point in his life.

This is not my favorite from Hemingway, but it was enjoyable. Once again, his descriptions of nature were gorgeous and his unemotional writing pairs well with emotional scenes.

This is a gorgeous biography from Hemingway that makes you feel as though you are living his life and feeling his burnout. Although there are highs, we really feel the lows. I most relate to his descriptions of conversations with acquaintances while he sits at a coffee shop. His relationship to his wife was also interesting. Having learned more about his life it becomes an even more depressing book.
