Ernest Hemingway - Author

About the 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.

Anthony McGowan, Guest Editor June 2015 chose The Old Man and the Sea as one of his favourite short novels...."This is an adventure story, of a kind, about an old fisherman who, accompanied by a young boy, goes out in a tiny fishing boat  and catches a giant marlin.  The fish drags them out in to the Gulf of Mexico, and for three days the old man and the boy struggle, first to kill the fish, and then to protect the valuable carcass from the sharks. It’s a story of quiet courage and human endurance, as exciting as it is moving."

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: Volume 5, 1932-1934 1932-1934

Author: Ernest Hemingway Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/07/2020

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 5, spanning 1932 through May 1934, traces the completion and publication of Death in the Afternoon and Winner Take Nothing. During this intensely active period, Hemingway hunts in Arkansas and Wyoming, fishes the waters off Key West and Cuba, revisits Madrid and Paris, and undertakes a long-anticipated African safari. He witnesses transitions at home and abroad: the deepening Great Depression, Prohibition-era rumrunning, revolution in Cuba, and political unrest in Spain. His readership and celebrity continue to expand as he begins writing for the new men's magazine Esquire. As the volume ends, Hemingway has just acquired his beloved boat, Pilar. The letters detail these events as well as his relationships with his family, friends, publishers, critics and literary contemporaries including editor Maxwell Perkins, Archibald MacLeish, John Dos Passos, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Together the letters paint an intimate self-portrait of this multi-faceted, self-confident, energetic artist in his prime.
