Ernest Hemingway - Author

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His distinctive writing style is characterized by terse minimalism and understatement and had a significant influence on the development of twentieth century fiction. Hemingway's protagonists are typically stoics, often seen as projections of his own character — men who must show "grace under pressure". Many of his works are considered classics in the canon of American literature. Hemingway was part of the 1920s expatriate community in Paris, as described in his novel A Moveable Feast. Known as part of "The Lost Generation," a name coined and popularized by Gertrude Stein, he led a turbulent social life, was married four times, and allegedly had various romantic relationships during his lifetime. Hemingway received the Pulitzer Prize (1953) for The Old Man and the Sea. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954, and 1961, at age 61, he committed suicide.
