Interesting article, what are your thoughts?

I doubt it. He had had suicidal thoughts since he was in his 20s.
However, I don't doubt Hoover didn't try to make his life miserable. Hoover was a nasty SOB.
Hoover was the biggest sexual black-mailer in history. Not an opinion. Factual. As the new popular book 'Sex in America' points out. He had files on everyone he thought could be a threat to his position and power. Suicide most definitely ran in Hemingway's family line. His beautiful granddaughter/actress Margot being a fairly recent example. Why would Hemingway be any different from the thousands of others that Hoover had far more damaging info on that didn't take that step. Whats the financial situation of the 13 year friend. Not saying it isn't as this gentleman believes but these points should be known.
I had heard he committed suicide because they gave him shock therapy, and then he lost his memory and couldn't write anymore.
As with so many great artists with brilliant minds, mental illness is a definite possibility , conspiracy theories belong to the survivors in his death. You can blame anyone for suicide , but! It was there ....waiting in the shadows as it always is with its victims...... No cause no cure! He suffered from depression, alcoholism , isn't that enough?
This article was sad because while I don't believe the FBI file and surveillence would have been the only reason Hemmingway committed suicide, it would surely have been distressing to a man already experiencing symptoms of mental illness.
Thanks for posting this intriguing question.

If Jesus knew he would die at the hands of the Romans but he still didnt shut up, then he must've been deliberately committing suicide by cop.
