"What a writer should try to do is to write as truly as he can.
a writer has to invent out of what he knows in order to make.
something not photographic, or naturalistic, or realistic, which.
will be something entirely new and invented out of his own.
knowledge . . . What a writer should try to do is to make something.
which will be so written that it will become a part of experience of.
those who read him."".
Hemingway 1954 (Harvey Breit p 77) .
"He became the most influential and most imitated writer. He dared.
deal (without saying so in speech or discourse) with what Faulkner.
has called the eternal verities of the heart. Passion and wit, brutality.
and love, lust and ethical concern, action and morality all found their.
substantial shapes in Hemingway's terse, quintessential and yet.
(paradoxically) natural language."".
(Breit p 79).
Ernest Miller Hemingway was born in 1899 in Chicago. In 1917 he joined the Kansas City "Star- as a cub reporter. The following year he volunteered to work as an ambulance driver on the Italian front. There he also did some reporting. He returned to America in 1919 and married in 1921. Attracted by the anonymity of Parisian life, as the absolute centre of literary/artistic life of western civilization, Hemingway settled and renewed friendship with fellow expatriates as Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Hemingway's first two published works were Three Stories and Ten Poems and In Our Time but it was the satirical novel, The Torrents of Spring, which established his name more widely. His international reputation was firmly secured by his next three books: Fiesta (The Sun Also Rises), Men Without Women and A Farewell to Arms. He was passionately involved with bullfighting, big game hunting and deep-sea fishing, and his writing reflected this. He visited Spain during the Civil War and described his experiences in the bestseller, For Whom the Bell Tolls.
