Overview

Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899-1961) was a novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He was part of the 1920s expatriate community in Paris, and one of the veterans of World War I later known as “the Lost Generation. ” He received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for The Old Man and the Sea (1952), and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Hemingway’s distinctive writing style is characterized by economy and understatement, and had a significant influence on the development of twentieth-century fiction writing. His protagonists are typically stoical men who exhibit an ideal described as “grace under pressure. ” Many of his works are now considered classics of American literature. His works include: The Torrents of Spring (1926), The Sun Also Rises (1926), A Farewell to Arms (1929), To Have and Have Not (1937), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) and Across the River and Into the Trees (1950).

About the Author

The preeminent American novelist and short story writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) wrote provocative fiction steeped in the experiences of the "lost generation" that came of age during World War I. Hemingway's four best-known books — The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea — highlight the author's trademark economy of style while depicting lives shaped by futility, frustration, and disappointment. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954.
