Hemingway's Writing Style and Voice: The 10-Point Discussion
 
08:51
Heay! Josh here, welcome to the WriteRightRite (: All literary critics understand that Hemingway as a minimalist writer, and that his style — his voice was one of the most unique writing styles of the time, and still is. But our question is, how can I write like him? How do I find the voice and style of the minimalist writer, like Hemingway? This list of 10 ways Hemingway wrote like a minimalist should point us in the right direction. 1. The "Hard Boiled" Style Hemingway wrote in a masculine, scientific, and at times rigid and abrupt way... 2. Be Efficient Hemingway despised superfluous literature... 3. Write the Truth "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." 4. Find Solitude "Although far from a recluse, Hemingway always wrote in solitude or near solitude when conditions didn't allow. In A Moveable Feast he recalls the cold of his room, warmed by sticks in the winter: "It was either six or eight flights up to the top floor and it was very cold and I knew how much it cost for a bundle of small twigs, to make a fire that would warm the room." 5. Write Standing up In 1958 a reporter named George Plimpton interviewed Hemingway. He writes: "A working habit he has had from the beginning, Hemingway stands when he writes. He stands in a pair of his oversized loafers on the worn skin of a lesser kudu -- the typewriter and the reading board chest-high opposite him." 6. Find a Secret Writing Place This is not just a place of solitude, but a different place than your normal haunts. 7. Write With Pencil and Paper It's not everyone's forte, especially in the modern world of laptops and wi-fi. But this was Ernest Hemingway's way. 8. Short Sentences Are Successful Hemingway was once challenged to write a story using only 6 words. He wrote: "For sale: baby shoes, never used." 9. Use Language Aggressively That doesn't mean cuss every other word, although at times Hemingway did that too. The more energetically forceful words are, the less need there is for more of them. Consider these 10. Keep the Good, Trash the Bad In 1934, Hemingway told F. Scott Fitzgerald: "I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of sh**. I try to put the sh** in the wastebasket." -Josh Photos by: Thanks for the great photos! - Marie-Lan Nguyen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiled_egg#mediaviewer/File:Egg_spiral_egg_cup.jpg Janet Ramsden https://www.flickr.com/photos/ramsd/11075130845/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Improvana http://improvana.tumblr.com/ Geraint Rowland https://www.flickr.com/photos/geezaweezer/13519812124/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Tobias Vemmenby https://www.flickr.com/photos/toobydoo/11350433966/in/photolist-hyH1UN-cResdL-6fWNYP-9aXQzK-6YEhtv-fhCMtq-jUqYE-4uLWG6-4MfCNH-7SyD2r-cUv4i3-6YJjjy-4f2GNe-btBcgy-cXfuvm-8uAuod-ihZWzm-84G99h-8gVDyg-jg1yUu-9EwYzB Laura Ritchie https://www.flickr.com/photos/lauraritchie/7874958188/in/photolist-cZTdHb-b3JagT-5b7m8i-7GHQjM-6iriP7-74kT37-iTBuer-aafHex-fUw3tp-b18J7g-8FDhnK-atwsgk-73EYvL-dVr5uX-963van-9vNiDT-9vZQbU-6CAqjw-6tbFKY-8kCy1P-6KDN3R-aNgqzX-7fw487-ax9Wxo-6FdyvF-8rEo7Q-ar28sq-ba2bue-b18FWx-6KDvJR-74gcCn-b18JHa-aubwL4-azLAn1-6w5iMm-jeNbbb-bifZjM-mmjP9P-8Z25y7-aiuSwC-613NTr-eetGE3-81uiaD-6zMFTc-6tbFU3-9WhLYe-6NjxHx-iAn97x-9TfHCw-8KffUP

Ernest Hemingway: Life of a Hundred Men | Tooky History

Ernest Hemingway was one of the most influential writers of the 20th century and many of his works are considered classics of American literature. His personal life deserved a novel itself. Subscribe to our channel to view more videos like this one: https://goo.gl/Y9RH3v Like the video if you enjoyed it and leave us your thoughts in the comments below! Hemingway spent his childhood hunting and fishing with his father, and playing cello to indulge his mother. He was 18 when he decided to join the army and went to Italy to be an ambulance driver. There, Hemingway met a lifelong friend Dos Passos and had his first encounter with wartime experience, which would inspire much of his literary work. During his time in Italy, he got injured by mortar fire and spent 6 months in hospital. After the war, Hemingway spent some time in Toronto and Chicago, where he met his first wife Hadley. With Hadley, he left for Paris and worked as a correspondent for Toronto Star. There, he met a lot of his contemporary artists which influenced his way of perceiving society. He was often visiting Spain, where he fell in love with bullfighting, and upon return to United States, Hemingway was boating in the Caribbean and developed a habit of heavy drinking. WWII came, and Hemingway got involved in the battle as a correspondent. After the war, he was at his estate in Cuba, where he started suffering from depression. His health slowly deteriorated and he ended up committing suicide like his father. During his life, Ernest Hemingway suffered from many illnesses and injuries and had 4 wives.

How to Find Your Writing Voice — Improve Your Writing Style!
 
05:26
Hiya WriteRighters, Josh Rueff here, welcome to the WriteRightRite! Wow this video took forever... But it was totally worth it — if it helped me remember the best strategies to finding my writing voice, I'm sure it'll help others as well. Many thanks to the photographers, funny pic-makers and composers who helped make this tutorial easier to watch (: I've given you attribution below in the first comment because it wouldn't fit here. Here's the transcription of the information we went over in the how to find your writing voice video: This is one of the best questions I hear from new writers. How do I fine-tune my writing voice? I believe this is one of the most important questions any writer can ask, whether you're just on the brink of making the plunge into writing, or a seasoned writing veteran. It's like your clothes, hobbies, your work if you love it — the art you create, the music you listen to and those glorious DIY projects you build from scratch. Your writing voice is what sets you apart; it's what brings readers to you and fuels your motivation — because writing, once you've found your voice, becomes an extension of your personality, a way to connect with people and a channel to express who you are. There's a lot of noise in the world around us, and as a writer, part of your craft is being heard, and the way we do that is by showing who you are, how you're unique from everyone else and why your voice is important to listen to. This is how you can start finding your writing voice: 1. Find your personality. If you could choose one vehicle that would best communicate your personality, what would it be? If you had to wear 3 sets of clothing to express your personality, what would they be? What are the top 3 foods that you would be if you reincarnated into a culinary dish? (That's assuming you've completely jacked your karma of course) 2. Using the answers you chose from those questions, describe yourself with 3 words. For example, I may say that I'm Inventive, Quirky, and Honest. 3. Now pay attention to how you talk in every day conversation. Do you joke a lot? Maybe you like to debate or dig to the root of every issue — on the other hand you may prefer jumping lightly from topic to topic because you get bored without variety. 4. Using that info, compare it to your writing. Ask yourself, Is this how I talk? One of the most common mistakes a writer can make is to write with words she or he would never use in every day conversation. This will come across as awkward, clumsy and even pretentious at times. 5. What are your favorite books? Do the authors of those books write in a voice you'd like to emulate? If so, study their voice as you read — note how they use punctuation, imagery, metaphors and rhythm. Look for the quirks and nuances that make their voice different from everyone else's. 6. Another great thing to learn about yourself is your life passions. What are your favorite hobbies, sports, pastimes? Choose the word that best describes your favorite activities in life, and add that to the description of your voice. 7. What emotions do you feel most often? Add them to your writer's voice toolbox. 8. Sometimes other people know us better than we know ourselves. Your writer's voice is something your friends and family will know better than anyone — including yourself. Tell them you're honing your writing craft and you need to learn more about your voice. Ask them questions like, what makes the way I communicate different from everyone else? You need to know every odd choice of words, speech ticks, unique expressions and body language. Ask them the same questions you just asked yourself, and make sure it's not all about you — tell them how you think their personality is unique and learn about how they'd describe themselves. After you've done this — keeping notes of your answers and other people's answers, keep the good and trash the bad. If you have a tendency to ramble, learn to be succinct. If your vocabulary is bland, expand your mind with new words — once you've used a new word in conversation twice a day, every day for a week, you've gained ownership of that word. Try it, you'll see what I mean. Weed out everything you don't like about your current voice, and strive to create the voice that you want. Don't worry about being a copycat — if you start writing like Hemingway it'll come across as... not real. But over time with lots of deliberate practice, your voice will emerge with only hints of influence from Hemingway and your other favorite writers. One last thought I'd like to add is that finding your writing voice takes time. Be patient and be as deliberate as possible in learning your current voice, choosing your ideal voice, and creating the perfect writing voice that expresses who you are, and makes the statement " I am important to listen to".

Jeanne Holland at Saturday U- Ernest Hemingway: Style and Substance
 
57:30
Jeanne Holland, Associate Professor of English, University of Wyoming, presented “Ernest Hemingway: Style and Substance” as part of the program, “Hunting and the Hemingway Code,” presented Sept. 15, 2018, at the Whitney Academic Center, Sheridan College, Sheridan, WY. As the story is told, Ernest Hemingway won a bet with friends who didn’t believe he could produce a novel in six words. “For Sale: Baby Shoes, Never Worn,” he wrote and took the prize. This talk explored how Hemingway’s economical writing style, his subject matter (bullfighting, fishing, sex, love, war, death, and loss), and his development of what came to be called “the Hemingway code” for how to live an authentic life shaped and still influence American life and literature. “Hunting and the Hemingway Code” is the theme for the opening fall semester of Saturday University -- the half day of college lectures and discussion offered by the University of Wyoming. Hemingway, the famed American novelist, short story writer and journalist, had a connection to the Cowboy State. Saturday University in Sheridan is sponsored by the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Humanities Council, and Sheridan College. Saturday U is free and open to the public.

Paul Hendrickson: Hemingway's Life & Writing
 
56:04
Ernest Hemingway, son of Oak Park, man—and writer—of the world, looms large in our literary pantheon. From the frontiers of the 20th century's greatest wars to the expatriate literati of Paris, his characteristic prose and colorful personal life, which included marriages, torrid affairs, and crippling depression, have secured his place in our collective imagination. It is only now, more than 50 years after his death, that a definitive biography has emerged to deepen our understanding of this complex man. Hemingway's Boat by Paul Hendrickson was published in 2011 to rave reviews. "Through painstaking reporting, through conscientious sifting of the evidence, and most of all, through vivid, heartfelt, luminous writing, Hendrickson gets to the heart of both Hemingway and his world," writes the Chicago Tribune's Julia Keller. Chicago reporter Rick Kogan will be in conversation with the author. Hendrickson is the winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Heartland Prize for his previous book, Sons of Mississippi. He is a senior lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania. This program is presented in partnership with the Chicago Tribune's Printers Row Live! series. This annual prize, awarded separately for fiction and nonfiction, recognizes recently published works "embodying the spirit of the nation's heartland." The prizes are part of the Chicago Tribune's ongoing dedication to reading, writing, and ideas. Paul Hendrickson, a writer for the Washington Post for more than twenty years, now teaches nonfiction writing at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of Seminary: A Search, Looking for the Light: The Hidden Life and Art of Marion Post Wolcott (a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award), The Living and the Dead: Robert McNamara and Five Lives of a Lost War (a finalist for the National Book Award), and Sons of Mississippi (winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award and the Heartland Prize).
Biography - HE - Ernest Hemingway - Part 1 of 2 - Famous American Author
 
12:26
Ernest Hemingway, 1899-1961: Part 1 "A writer is always alone, always an outsider," Ernest Hemingway said. Others said that of the many people he created in his books, Hemingway was his own best creation. Ernest Hemingway was born in eighteen ninety-nine. He grew up in Oak Park, Illinois, near the middle western City of Chicago. He was the second child in a family of six. His father was a doctor. His mother liked to paint and play the piano. Each summer the family traveled to their holiday home in northern Michigan. Ernest's father taught him how to catch fish, hunt, set up a camp and cook over a fire. At home in Oak Park, Ernest wrote for his school newspaper At the age of twenty-five Ernest Hemingway was famous. Many people, however, could not recognize Hemingway's art because they did not like what he wrote about. Hemingway's sentences were short, the way he had been taught to write at the Kansas City Star newspaper. He wrote about what he knew and felt. He used few descriptive words. His statements were clear and easily understood. He had learned from earlier writers, like Ring Lardner and Sherwood Anderson. But Hemingway brought something new to his writing. He was able to paint in words what he saw and felt. In later books, sometimes he missed. Sometimes he even looked foolish. But when he was right he was almost perfect. With the success of his novel, Hemingway became even more popular in Paris. Many people came to see him. One was an American woman, Pauline Pfeiffer. She became Hadley's friend. Then Pauline fell in love with Hemingway. Hemingway and Pauline saw each other secretly. One time, they went away together on a short trip. Years later, Hemingway wrote about returning home after that trip: "When I saw Hadley again, I wished I had died before I ever loved anyone but her. She was smiling and the sun was on her lovely face. " But the marriage was over. Ernest Hemingway and Hadley separated. She kept their son. He agreed to give her money he earned from his books. In later years, he looked back at his marriage to Hadley as the happiest time of his life.

Teaching Hemingway
 
01:41:07
Ernest Hemingway may no longer be revered as he once was, but he remains among the most influential of twentieth-century American writers. In this seminar, we will try to rediscover the qualities that made Hemingway so important. What was it about his prose and narrative style, his ideas about art and experience, his view of the relation between literature and commercial society, his way of depicting suffering, trauma and dignity, that made him in some ways the premier American writer of literary fiction in the twentieth century? Our focus will be on several of the major short stories, including, "In Another Country,” "The Killers,” "The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” and "Hills Like White Elephants."

William Faulkner: On Good Writing

Like, comment, share, and subscribe. William Faulkner is considered to be one of the greatest writers of the 20th century. His depiction of the American south, a painting colored in a combination of dramatized fiction and accurate accounts, sets the stage for his award winning novels. His Nobel Prize speech discusses the difference between good and bad writing, the purpose of good writing, and the purpose of a writer’s work in a society.

ERNEST HEMINGWAY
 
00:53
FF117, 1950S, ERNEST HEMINGWAYErnest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 -- July 2, 1961) was an American author and journalist. His distinctive writing style, characterized by economy and understatement, influenced 20th-century fiction, as did his life of adventure and public image. He produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s. He won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. Hemingway's fiction was successful because the characters he presented exhibited authenticity that resonated with his audience. Many of his works are classics of American literature. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works during his lifetime; a further three novels, four collections of short stories, and three non-fiction works were published posthumously.Hemingway was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After leaving high school he worked for a few months as a reporter for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to become an ambulance driver during World War I, which became the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms. He was seriously wounded and returned home within the year. In 1922 Hemingway married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives, and the couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent. During his time there he met and was influenced by modernist writers and artists of the 1920s expatriate community known as the, http://www.myfootage.com/details.php?gid=58&sgid=&pid=20265

Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing
 
01:15:52
The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), in collaboration with the Harvard Writers at Work Lecture Series, welcomed Professor Steven Pinker and Visiting Professor Jill Abramson on December 9th, 2014 in a talk at Harvard titled, "Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing." The discussion, inspired by the recent publication of Professor Pinker’s book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century, was focused on the teaching and learning of writing, associated challenges, and practical recommendations. The starting point of effective writing, Pinker shared, is for the author to determine a mental model of the communication scenario between the writer and the reader. Pinker shared the “classic style” theory of interpreting writer/reader communication from literary scholars Francis-Noel Thomas and Mark Turner. Classic style aims to help the reader see objective reality, which can be accomplished by focusing on the thing being shown and not on the activity of studying it, as well as by avoiding clichés and “metaconcepts” (concepts about concepts), among other recommendations. Academic writing, in contrast, is frequently written in postmodern or self-conscious style, one that includes apologizing and hedging.

Hemingway Parody Humor Writing

Hemingway Parody Humor Writing MY BLOG: http://unboringhumor-blog.tumblr.com/ *Parody Under Fair Use https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_use http://fairuse.stanford.edu/overview/fair-use/what-is-fair-use/ *(There used to be a Hemingway parody contest. This was my entry.) Summary :Old Man And The Sea Its the story of an old man living in a small fishing village in Cuba, who has gone 84 days without catching a fish. The local villagers look down upon him and say he is unlucky. He goes out again to try and catches a super size Marlin, which is too big for his small fishing boat to reel in. After a long battle of endurance he manages to defeat the Marlin, only to be attacked by several sharks. After killing several sharks he realizes he is fighting a losing battle and by the time he makes it to shore only the skeleton of the giant Marlin remains. Even shorter summary: Old man gets hungry catches fish, sharks eat fish, comes home with skeleton of fish and is still hungry. Ernest Hemingway - Biography - Author -Biography.com “"Ernest Hemingway: Author (1899–1961) Nobel Prize winner Ernest Hemingway is seen as one of the great American 20th century novelists, and is known for works like A Farewell to Arms and The Old Man and the Sea. In 1951, Hemingway wrote The Old Man and the Sea, which would become perhaps his most famous book, finally winning him the Pulitzer Prize he had long been denied. In 1954, he won the Nobel Prize in Literature Basically, his style is simple, direct, and unadorned. Hemingway was a minimalist writer. Minimalism is defined as writing that is whittled down to the basics with the greatest weight of the work put on context rather than the use of extensive descriptive language” Lets see what Hemingway said on humor and parody…. Letter (6 December 1924); published in Ernest Hemingway: Selected Letters 1917–1961 (1981) edited by Carlos Baker “A man’s got to take a lot of punishmen t to write a really funny book.” Letter (21 June 1952); published in Ernest Hemingway: Selected Letters 1917–1961 (1981) edited by Carlos Baker “You know lots of criticism is written by characters who are very academic and think it is a sign you are worthless if you make jokes or kid or even clown.” A Moveable Feast (1964)Chapter 11 “They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.” Papa Hemingway (1966) Pt. 1, Ch. 4 “The parody is the last refuge of the frustrated writer. Parodies are what you write when you are associate editor of the Harvard Lampoon. The greater the work of literature, the easier the parody. The step up from writing parodies is writing on the wall above the urinal. ” Well Hemingway, lets agree to disagree here. Since nothing is completely original but imitations of what other writers have written before him, in a way all writing is parody even serious writing, atleast that’s how I see it. Maybe if hemingway didn’t take himself so seriously he would be alive today Does Nobel have a category for humor?… The Old Man and the Sea has been adapted for the screen three times: a 1958 film starring Spencer Tracy, a 1990 miniseriestarring Anthony Quinn, and a 1999 animated short film. The best version in my opinion though is the Charleton Heston Audiobook reading. The Old Man and the Sea: Ernest Hemingway, Charlton Heston: Amazon.com: Books MUSIC: Photo Story 3 music creation.

Top 5 Tips to Develop Your Fiction Writing Voice
 
07:47
Aspiring writers often wonder how to develop their writing voice. In this video I go over my top tips for developing a strong voice that works well for your novel. This video is part of my Novel Boot Camp series. A new video will be posted every weekday in July. The FULL SCHEDULE can be viewed here: https://ellenbrockediting.com/2016/06/22/novel-boot-camp-free-novel-writing-course-workshop-in-july/ Please like, subscribe, and share my videos! It really helps me out. Thanks for watching! VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS - Reading a wide variety of novels is essential in creating a strong voice. - Avoid stealing or mimicking another writer's voice because you will struggle to maintain that voice over the long run. You will likely get frustrated and quit writing. Five Tips for Developing Your Writing Voice 1. Write with Intention - Think about the emotion and tone you want to convey to readers and make sure your word choices reflect it. If you want to create a tense or scary tone, don't compare clouds to fluffy pillows. If you want to create an uplifting tone, don't compare a mountain range to the edge of a serrated knife. 2. Experiment with Point of View - Writers often stick to one point of view because they are comfortable with it or because they believe their genre requires a specific point of view. Experimenting with point of view and choosing the one that works better for you can significantly improve your voice. 3. Edit - Some writers believe that a strong voice means you get everything right the first time, but this is not the case. All writers need to edit their work to bring out their voice and to replace sloppy similes or poor word choices. Editing is a great way to pull out the voice you're shooting for. 4. Know the Basics - A "weak voice" often just means that the writer hasn't mastered the basics. Make sure you understand point of view, passive speech, and tense. It's also important to recognize and avoid cliches, filtering, and telling. Learning and applying the basics can move your voice from weak to competent. 5. Relax - It takes a long time to develop a strong voice so try to be patient. You can also relax because a strong voice is not nearly as important as most writers think it is. So long as your voice is competent and isn't blatantly weak, it is probably strong enough to be successful so long as the story itself is worth telling. A voice that simply gets the job done is sufficient in most genres and most stories.

Naxos Backstage | Michael Daugherty on Tales of Hemingway's Literary Inspiration

Tales of Hemingway for cello and orchestra was commissioned by the Nashville Symphony and a consortium consisting of: the Asheville Symphony, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the El Paso Symphony Orchestra, the Erie Philharmonic, , the Redwood Symphony, the South Florida Orchestra, and the Virginia Symphony. The world premiere was on April 17, 2015, with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Giancarlo Guerrero,with Zuill Bailey, solo cello, at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, Nashville, Tennessee. Tales of Hemingway evokes the turbulent life, adventures, and literature of American author and journalist Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). His terse, direct, accessible writing style, combined with a mastery of dialogue and brilliant use of omission and repetition, made him one of the most influential and original writers of the 20th century. Hemingway’s distinctive body of work was also informed by his larger-than-life experiences. In his youth in Oak Park, Chicago, Hemingway was surrounded by music, where his mother was a prominent music teacher and he played the cello in school orchestras. Hemingway’s family owned a remote summer home on Walloon Lake near Petoskey, Michigan, where hunting, fishing, and camping were a family ritual. As an adult, Hemingway’s passion and expertise for deep-sea fishing in the Florida Keys and Cuba, big game hunting in Africa, bullfighting in Spain, and boxing were legendary. Hemingway experienced the horrors and ironies of war as a Red Cross ambulance driver in World War I (1918) and as a journalist on the front lines of the Spanish Civil War (1937) and World War II (1944-45). In the 1920s, Hemingway was part of Gertrude Stein’s “Lost Generation” in Paris and haunted the bars and cafés with F. Scott Fitzgerald. During his lifetime, many of his works were made into Hollywood films, and his journalism and literature was syndicated in magazines and newspapers around the world, making Hemingway an international celebrity and a household name.

Ernest Hemingway - Epic Writers - One Minute History
 
01:00
Writer. Soldier. Hunter. Survivor. Ernest Hemingway embodies the spirit of American grit living a nomadic life of adventure. His story opens in the suburbs of Chicago as a journalist for his high school paper, The Trapeze. During World War I, Hemingway enlists as a medic on the Italian Front, an experience that will influence his penship throughout his career. Hemingway’s travels abroad inspire stories of heroism in war, hunting on safari, bullfighting and the call of the sea. A “man’s man” writer. Critics pour accolades upon him and his style, characterized by urgency and monosyllabic prose, culminating in a Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize In Literature. A dark undercurrent will sadly afflict Hemingway’s life in a turbulent affair of four marriages, a rash of serious injuries, and a lifetime of alcoholism. In ill health and suffering with severe depression, Hemingway commits suicide in his Idaho home at the age of 61.

2. Hemingway's In Our Time

Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner (AMST 246) Professor Wai Chee Dimock discusses Hemingway's first book In Our Time, a collection of vignettes published in 1925 that launched Hemingway's career as a leading American modernist. Professor Dimock examines a cluster of three vignettes from In Our Time to show how Hemingway's laconic style naturalizes problems of pain and violence amidst the ethnic tensions of the American Midwest. Drawing on the theoretical writings of critics Elaine Scarry and Susan Sontag, and the artistic representations of painter Edvard Munch, Professor Dimock shows how language probes the empathetic boundaries of communal suffering in "Indian Camp" and "Chapter II." She concludes with a discussion of "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife" that shows how inter-ethnic conflict between Native Americans and whites is neutralized by the primitive impulse of peacekeeping, the opposite of the violence she reads in the two other vignettes in this cluster. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

Hemingway vs. Fitzgerald: Admiration, Jealousy, Friendship & Literature (2000)
 
42:55
Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six short story collections, and two non-fiction works. Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously. Many of his works are considered classics of American literature. Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school, he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929). In 1921, he married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives. The couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent and fell under the influence of the modernist writers and artists of the 1920s "Lost Generation" expatriate community. He published his first novel, The Sun Also Rises, in 1926. After his 1927 divorce from Hadley Richardson, Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer; they divorced after he returned from the Spanish Civil War where he had been a journalist, and after which he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940; they separated when he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II. He was present at the Normandy landings and the liberation of Paris. Shortly after the publication of The Old Man and the Sea (1952), Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in two successive plane crashes that left him in pain or ill health for much of his remaining life. Hemingway maintained permanent residences in Key West, Florida, (1930s) and Cuba (1940s and 1950s), and in 1959, he bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ernest_Hemingway Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald (September 24, 1896 – December 21, 1940) was an American novelist and short story writer, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of the Jazz Age. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation" of the 1920s. He finished four novels: This Side of Paradise, The Beautiful and Damned, The Great Gatsby (his best known), and Tender Is the Night. A fifth, unfinished novel, The Love of the Last Tycoon, was published posthumously. Fitzgerald also wrote numerous short stories, many of which treat themes of youth and promise, and age and despair. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F._Scott_Fitzgerald
