Ernest Hemingway Biography, Brief

Ernest Hemingway Short Biography:

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21st, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois, which is a suburb of Chicago. Hemingway was the first son, and second child, born to Clarence Edmonds Hemingway-a country doctor, and Grace Hall Hemingway.

Hemingway's mother had wanted twins, and when this didn't happen, she often dressed young Ernest and his sister Marcelline (a full 18 months older) in similar clothes and with similar hairstyles, maintaining the pretense of the two children being "twins." This has led to some people wondering about Ernest Hemingway and his twin, but in reality he has no twin, but an older sister.

Many academic critics wonder if this had some influence on the recurring themes in Hemingway's works that point to destructive interactions between males and females in general.

After high school, Hemingway did not want to go to college and so at age 18 he bean his writing career as a journalist. Ernest Hemingway - journalist, started as a reporter for The Kansas City Star. Although he worked at this newspaper for only six months, this style of writing would influence all of his fiction writing with short, crisp, clear senetences.

In honor of the centennial year of Hemingway's birth (1899), in 1999 The Star named Hemingway its top reporter of the last hundred years.

Hemingway would serve in World War I. He failed getting into the army because of poor eyes, so Ernest Heminway worked for the Red Cross as an ambulance driver. Hemingway's first story: "A Natural History of the Dead" was based on his first experience with death, picking up corpses of women from a destroyed arms factory.

In a quick flurry of moves after the war Ernest Hemingway would move to Toronto, Chicago, and after marrying his wife, they would move to Paris. Here Ernest Hemingway would learn from Gertrude Stein, and eventually get into an incredibly famous fued.

Hemingway helped make famous the term "The Lost Generation," and as a novelist and short story writer he would become face.

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 - July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He was one of the earliest authors to win both the Pulitzer Prize for fiction (for The Old Man and the Sea) and the Nobel Prize for literature, placing him with the likes of John Steinbeck, Sinclair Lewis, and William Faulkner.

Ernest Hemingway is still often lifted up as an example to graduate students of how to be a successful writer.

Although he was an accomplished man, there was a darkness and depression that ended with Ernest Hemingway committing suicide July 2, 1961.

Ernest Hemingway's First Novel

Ernest Hemingway The Torrents of Spring | Ernest Hemingway In Our Time | Ernest Hemingway Three Stories and Ten Poems

Ernest Hemingway is one of the all time greats of American literature, whose style was a stark contrast (if not complete polar opposite) of his literary rival, William Faulkner.

If you're an amateur book collector looking for the very first Ernest Hemingway novel, you're going to have a hard time finding it. Hemingway had to pay his dues like most famous writers, and when someone refers to "Hemingway's first novel" they might be referring to one of three works:

Three Stories and Ten Poems

In Our Time

Torrents of Spring

These are the earliest works of Hemingway. "Three Stories and Ten Poems" is the rarest, and was actually self-published. Only 300 copies were printed in 1923, a perfect copy of the first edition of 3 stories and 10 poems would now sell for $65,000. Even a copy in beat up rough shape is worth $3,500 minimum.

Ironically, "In Our Time" was supposed to be Hemingway's first novel, but publishing was delayed, so this wasn't printed until 1924. There were only 170 copies made o the first version, released by William Bird Press of Paris. A perfect first edition of "In Our Time" is worth $50,000, while a 1925 New York printing is woth about the same, but only with a dust jacket.

The Torrents of Spring by Ernest Hemingway was printed in 1926, and was the work that really gained national and international attention for the young author. A "Torrents of Spring" first draft with dust jacket is worth around $20,000 in excellent condition, and 15% in worn, but good, condition.

Ernest Hemingway Novels from Amazon

Ernest Hemingway The Old Man and the Sea

Ernest Hemingway Boat | Ernest Hemingway Cuba | Keywest Ernest Hemingway |

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most famous books, and was written while Ernest Hemingway was in Cuba. In real life Hemingway loved fishing and outdoors activities, and he was often in Cuba, to the point where "Hemingway's Cuba" has actually become slang referring to the works that came from that time, influenced by Cuban surroundings.

"The Old Man and the Sea" is a prime example of Man against Nature, and also an incredible metaphor for Man against Himself. The fisherman is brought by this amazing fish to the edge of oblivion, to the point where he states to the fish that he no longer even cares who kills who, and at that revelation the fisherman triumphs, even when others on the island can not see it.

This was a brilliant novel, and Hemingway was quoted as saying he revised "Old Man" over 200 time before he was finally satisfied with the final story.

Hemingway was no stranger to major sports fishing, and this first hand experience with fishing and the Cuban culture comes through vividly in this masterpiece.

Ernest Hemingway Havana | Hemingway Castro Pics | Hemingway Shaking Castro's Hand

It's no secret that Ernest Hemingway was a huge fan of Cuba. Hemingway often times vacationed for long periods of time in Cuba, especially around Havana. He wrote many of his classic works in Cuba, including The Old Man and the Sea.

Hemingway was as loved by many Cubans as he loved the nation. They know where Hemingway would drink, stay, and write. Those places are still well known among locals in Havana even today.

Cuba held a special place in Ernest Hemingway's heart, and it can be strange in today's world to see him shaking hands with Fidel Castro, but this reminds you of a more peaceful time, and shows that great literature can transcend politics, language, and nations alike - which in a way might just be Ernest Hemingway's greatest accomplishment.

Which is Your Favorite Hemingway Work?

There are so many great Ernest Hemingway works to choose from.

The Sun Also Rises
The Sun Also Rises

The quintessential novel of the Lost Generation, The Sun Also Rises is one of Ernest Hemingway's masterpieces and a classic example of his spare but powerful writing style. A poignant look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I generation, the novel introduces two of Hemingway's most unforgettable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. The story follows the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they journey from the wild nightlife of 1920s Paris to the brutal bullfighting rings of Spain with a motley group of expatriates. It is an age of moral bankruptcy, spiritual dissolution, unrealized love, and vanishing illusions. First published in 1926, The Sun Also Rises helped to establish Hemingway as one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century

 
The Old Man and The Sea
The Old Man and The Sea

The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, down on his luck, and his supreme ordeal -- a relentless, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely successful novella confirmed his power and presence in the literary world and played a large part in his winning the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature.

 
For Whom the Bell Tolls
For Whom the Bell Tolls

In 1937 Ernest Hemingway traveled to Spain to cover the civil war there for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Three years later he completed the greatest novel to emerge from "the good fight," For Whom the Bell Tolls. The story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla unit in the mountains of Spain, it tells of loyalty and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic death of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the beautiful Maria and his superb account of El Sordo's last stand, in his brilliant travesty of La Pasionaria and his unwillingness to believe in blind faith, Hemingway surpasses his achievement in The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms to create a work at once rare and beautiful, strong and brutal, compassionate, moving, and wise. "If the function of a writer is to reveal reality," Maxwell Perkins wrote Hemingway after reading the manuscript, "no one ever so completely performed it." Greater in power, broader in scope, and more intensely emotional than any of the author's previous works, it stands as one of the best war novels of all time.

A Moveable Feast
A Moveable Feast

Published posthumously in 1964, "A Moveable Feast" remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. It is his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s, filled with irreverent portraits of other expatriate luminaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein; tender memories of his first wife, Hadley; and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. It is a literary feast, brilliantly evoking the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the youthful spirit, unbridled creativity, and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

 
In Our Time
In Our Time

THIS COLLECTION OF SHORT STORIES AND VIGNETTES MARKED ERNEST HEMINGWAY'S AMERICAN DEBUT AND MADE HIM FAMOUSWhen In Our Time was published in 1925, it was praised by Ford Madox Ford, John Dos Passos, and F. Scott Fitzgerald for its simple and precise use of language to convey a wide range of complex emotions, and it earned Hemingway a place beside Sherwood Anderson and Gertrude Stein among the most promising American writers of that period. In Our Time contains several early Hemingway classics, including the famous Nick Adams stories "Indian Camp," "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," "The Three Day Blow," and "The Battler," and introduces readers to the hallmarks of the Hemingway style: a lean, tough prose -- enlivened by an car for the colloquial and an eye for the realistic that suggests, through the simplest of statements, a sense of moral value and a clarity of heart.Now recognized as one of the most original short story collections in twentieth-century literature, In Our Time provides a key to Hemingway's later works.

 
To Have and Have Not
To Have and Have Not

Hemingway's Classic Novel About Smuggling, Intrigue, and Love To Have and Have Not is the dramatic story of Harry Morgan, an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair.Harshly realistic, yet with one of the most subtle and moving relationships in the Hemingway oeuvre, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.

 
Green Hills of Africa (Scribner Classics)
Green Hills of Africa (Scribner Classics)

"There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things, and because it takes a man's life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave."-- ERNEST HEMINGWAYIn the winter of 1933, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Pauline set out on a two-month safari in the big-game country of East Africa, camping out on the great Serengeti Plain at the foot of magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. "I had quite a trip," the author told his friend Philip Percival, with characteristic understatement.Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's account of that expedition, of what it taught him about Africa and himself. Richly evocative of the region's natural beauty, tremendously alive to its character, culture, and customs, and pregnant with a hard-won wisdom gained from the extraordinary situations it describes, it is widely held to be one of the twentieth century's classic travelogues.

 
The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories
The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories

"The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories" contains ten of Hemingway's most acclaimed and popular works of short fiction. Selected from Winner TakeNothing, Men Without Women, and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories, this collection includes "The Killers," the first of Hemingway's mature stories to be accepted by an American periodical; the autobiographical "Fathers and Sons," which alludes, for the first time in Hemingway's career, to his father's suicide; "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber," a "brilliant fusion of personal observation, heresay, and invention," wrote Hemingway's biographer, Carlos Baker; and the title story itself, of which Hemingway said: "I put all the true stuff in," with enough material, he boasted, to fill four novels. Beautiful in their simplicity, startling in their originality, and unsurpassed in their craftsmanship, the stories in this volume highlight one of America's master storytellers at the top of his form.

 
Islands in the Stream: A Novel (Scribner Classics)
Islands in the Stream: A Novel (Scribner Classics)

First published in 1970, nine years after Ernest Hemingway's death, "Islands in the Stream" is the story of an artist and adventurer -- a man much like Hemingway himself. Rich with the uncanny sense of life and action characteristic of his writing -- from his earliest stories (In Our Time) to his last novella (The Old Man and the Sea) -- this compelling novel contains both the warmth of recollection that inspired A Moveable Feast and a rare glimpse of Hemingway's rich and relaxed sense of humor, which enlivens scene after scene.Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini, where his loneliness is broken by the vacation visit of his three young sons, to his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. The greater part of the story takes place in a Havana bar, where a wildly diverse cast of characters -- including an aging prostitute who stands out as one of Hemingway's most vivid creations -- engages in incomparably rich dialogue. A brilliant portrait of the inner life of a complex and endlessly intriguing man, Islands in the Stream is Hemingway at his mature best.

 
Ernest Hemingway on Writing
Ernest Hemingway on Writing

"Throughout Hemingway's career as a writer, he maintained that it was bad luck to talk about writing -- that it takes off 'whatever butterflies have on their wings and the arrangement of hawk's feathers if you show it or talk about it.'" Despite this belief, by the end of his life he had done just what he intended not to do. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived....This book contains Hemingway's reflections on the nature of the writer and on elements of the writer's life, including specific and helpful advice to writers on the craft of writing, work habits, and discipline. The Hemingway personality comes through in general wisdom, wit, humor, and insight, and in his insistence on the integrity of the writer and of the profession itself.-- From the Preface by Larry W. Phillips

 
Running with the Bulls:  My Years with the Hemingways
Running with the Bulls: My Years with the Hemingways

A chance encounter in Spain in 1959 brought young Irish reporter Valerie Danby-Smith face to face with Ernest Hemingway. The interview was awkward and brief, but before it ended something had clicked into place. For the next two years, Valerie devoted her life to Hemingway and his wife, Mary, traveling with them through beloved old haunts in Spain and France and living with them during the tumultuous final months in Cuba. In name a personal secretary, but in reality a confidante and sharer of the great man’s secrets and sorrows, Valerie literally came of age in the company of one of the greatest literary lions of the twentieth century.Five years after his death, Valerie became a Hemingway herself when she married the writer’s estranged son Gregory. Now, at last, she tells the story of the incredible years she spent with this extravagantly talented and tragically doomed family.In prose of brilliant clarity and stinging candor, Valerie evokes the magic and the pathos of Papa Hemingway’s last years. Swept up in the wild revelry that always exploded around Hemingway, Valerie found herself dancing in the streets of Pamplona, cheering bullfighters at Valencia, careening around hairpin turns in Provence, and savoring the panorama of Paris from her attic room in the Ritz. But it was only when Hemingway threatened to commit suicide if she left that she realized how troubled the aging writer was–and how dependent he had become on her.In Cuba, Valerie spent idyllic days and nights typing the final draft of A Moveable Feast, even as Castro’s revolution closed in. After Hemingway shot himself, Valerie returned to Cuba with his widow, Mary, to sort through thousands of manuscript pages and smuggle out priceless works of art. It was at Ernest’s funeral that Valerie, then a researcher for Newsweek, met Hemingway’s son Gregory–and again a chance encounter drastically altered the course of her life. Their twenty-one-year marriage finally unraveled as Valerie helplessly watched her husband succumb to the demons that had plagued him since childhood.From lunches with Orson Welles to midnight serenades by mysterious troubadours, from a rooftop encounter with Castro to numbing hospital vigils, Valerie Hemingway played an intimate, indispensable role in the lives of two generations of Hemingways. This memoir, by turns luminous, enthralling, and devastating, is the account of what she enjoyed, and what she endured, during her astonishing years of living as a Hemingway.From the Hardcover edition.

 
Hemingway on Fishing
Hemingway on Fishing

From childhood on, Ernest Hemingway was a passionate fisherman. He fished the lakes and creeks near the family's summer home at Walloon Lake, Michigan, and his first stories and reportages were often about his favorite sport. Here, collected for the first time in one volume, are all of his great writings about the many kinds of fishing he did -- from trout in the rivers of northern Michigan to marlin in the Gulf Stream.In A Moveable Feast, Hemingway speaks of sitting in a café in Paris and writing about what he knew best -- and when it came time to stop, he "did not want to leave the river." The story was the unforgettable classic, "Big Two-Hearted River," and from its first words we do not want to leave the river either. He also wrote articles for the Toronto Star on fishing in Canada and Europe and, later, articles for Esquire about his growing passion for big-game fishing. His last books, The Old Man and the Sea and Islands in the Stream, celebrate his vast knowledge of the ocean and his affection for its great denizens.Hemingway on Fishing is an encompassing, diverse, and fascinating collection. From the early Nick Adams stories and the memorable chapters on fishing the Irati River in The Sun Also Rises to such late novels as Islands in the Stream, this collection traces the evolution of a great writer's passion; the range of his interests; the sure use he made of fishing, transforming it into the stuff of great literature.Anglers and lovers of great writing alike will welcome this important collection.

 
Men Without Women
Men Without Women

CLASSIC SHORT STORIES FROM THE MASTER OF AMERICAN FICTIONFirst published in 1927, Men Without Women represents some of Hemingway's most important and compelling early writing. In these fourteen stories, Hemingway begins to examine the themes that would occupy his later works: the casualties of war, the often uneasy relationship between men and women, sport and sportsmanship. In "Banal Story," Hemingway offers a lasting tribute to the famed matador Maera. "In Another Country" tells of an Italian major recovering from war wounds as he mourns the untimely death of his wife. "The Killers" is the hard-edged story about two Chicago gunmen and their potential victim. Nick Adams makes an appearance in "Ten Indians," in which he is presumably betrayed by his Indian girlfriend, Prudence. And "Hills Like White Elephants" is a young couple's subtle, heartwrenching discussion of abortion. Pared down, gritty, and subtly expressive, these stories show the young Hemingway emerging as America's finest short story writer.

 

Oh Yeah - the Hemingway Drinking Guide

You knew it had to happen. I've actually waited years and years for someone to finish the holy tome. So okay, it might not be your traditional book hound type of antique book when dealing with Ernest Hemingway. However that being said, no master of the English fiction world has had such an encyclopedia of alcoholic knowledge and mixed drinks the way that Hemingway has. You saw whiskey and cokes appear everywhere, and there were mixed drinks in varieties and mixtures that are hard to trace back anywhere else.

In other words, when it comes to Ernest Hemingway - we needed a book all about the drinking man. And now we have it. This is why Philip Greene's To Have and To Have Another: A Hemingway Cocktail Companion is on this list - because you can't go far reading Hemingway or reading about Hemingway before you're going to come across cocktails of some kind.

Don't get me wrong….I love John Steinbeck and Sinclair Lewis - but what other author of this era can even remotely claim to create an entire future book and the admiration of thousands of alcoholic writers and bloggers based purely on his reputation for loving the drink? No disrespect to the awesome Hunter S. Thompson - but before him and even after there was only one "Ernest mother f**king Hemingway!"

If you want to learn drinking from the master of drink - it's not about the low calorie cocktails or even the most alcoholic cocktails - it's all about respecting the master. So it might not be your normal definition of an antique Ernest Hemingway first edition book, but it wouldn't be right to mention the master without the modern Hemingway guide to all things alcohol.

      For me he is the best till now. I began learning English 35 years ago to read Hemingway on his own language. After redundant and repetitive Tolstoy, pretentious and false Nekrasov it was a gulp of clear water. Thank you for such good article.
