Ernest (Miller) Hemingway (1899-1961)


One of the most famous American novelist, short-story writer and essayist, whose deceptively simple prose style have influenced wide range of writers. Ernest Hemingway was awarded the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature. He was unable to attend the award ceremony in Stockholm, because he was recuperating from injuries sustained in an airplane crash while hunting in Uganda.

"Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter. You will meet them doing various things with resolve, but their interest rarely holds because after the other thing ordinary life is as flat as the taste of wine when the taste buds have been burned off your tongue." ('On the Blue Water: A Gulf Stream Letter' by Ernest Hemingway, in Esquire, April, 1936)

Ernest Hemingway was born inn Oak Park, Illinois. His mother Grace Hall, whom he never forgave for dressing him as a little girl in his youth, had an operatic career before marrying Dr. Clarence Edmonds Hemingway; he taught his son to love out-door life. Hemingway's father took his own life in 1928 after losing his healt to diabetes and his money in the Florida real-estate bubble. Hemingway attended the public schools in Oak Park and published his earliest stories and poems in his high school newspaper. Upon his graduation in 1917, Hemingway worked six months as a reporter for The Kansas City Star. He then joined a volunteer ambulance unit in Italy during World War I. While distributing chocolate and cigarettes to troops at the front, he was wounded in the leg by sharpnel. For his service, Hemingway was twice decorated by the Italian government.

Hemingway's affair with an American nurse, Agnes von Kurowsky, during his hospital recuperation gave basis for the novel A Farewell to Arms (1929). It was first serialized in Scribner's Magazine and banned by the superintendent of the police in Boston before published in book form. The tragic love story was filmed first time in 1932, starring Gary Cooper, Helen Hayes, and Adolphe Menjou. In the second version from 1957, written by Ben Hecht and directed by Charles Vidor, Rock Hudson and Jennifer Jones were in the leading roles. Its failure caused David O. Selznick to produce no more films.

After the war Hemingway worked for a short time as a journalist in Chicago. He moved in 1921 to Paris, where wrote articles for the Toronto Star. "There is never any ending to Paris and the memory of each person who has lived in it differs from that of any other. We always returned to it no matter who we were or how it was changed or with what difficulties, or ease, it could be reached." (A Moveable Feast, Jonathan Cape, 1964, p. 192) While traveling to Switzerland in 1922, Hemingway's first wife Hadley lost a piece of luggage, which contained everything he had written to date.

In Europe, the center of modernist movement, Hemingway associated with such writers as Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald, who edited some of his texts and acted as his agent. Later Hemingway portrayed Fitzgerald in A Moveable Feast (1964), but less sympathetically. Fitzgerald, however, regretted their lost friendship. Of Gertrude Stein, who had settled in Paris in 1903, Hemingway wrote in a letter to Maxwell Perkins, his editor: "She lost all sense of taste when she had the menopause. Was really an extraordinary business. Suddenly she couldn't tell a good picture from a bad one, a good writer from a bad one, it all went phtt." (The Only Thing That Counts: The Ernest Hemingway-Maxwell Perkins Correspondence, 1925-1947, edited by Matthew J. Bruccoli, 1996, p. 193)

When he was not writing for the newspaper or for himself, Hemingway toured with his wife, the former Elisabeth Hadley Richardson, France, Switzerland, and Italy. Before moving on rue du Cardinal-Lemoine, he spent some time with Hadley at the Hôtel Jacob, a former British Embassy, which served after the war as temporary headuarters for many newly arrived Americans, including Djuna Barnes, Sherwood and Tennessee Anderson, and Harold Loeb. They had no running water in their tiny, fourth-floor apartment, a toilet was on each landing, but Hemingway boasted that it was in "the best part of the Latin Quarter."

In 1922 Hemingway went to Greece and Turkey to report on the war between those countries. Hemingway made two trips to Spain in 1923, on the second to see bullfights at Pamplona's annual festival. The Hemingways' second flat in Paris was on rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs; it was small and dark. They kept this residence until their separation in the autumn of 1926. After divorce, Hadley and her son, John (called as "Bumby"), moved to a sixth-floor flat on Boulevard Auguste-Blanqui. John grew up to be called Jack. At preschool age, he played with Julie Bowen, the daughter of Stella Bowen and Ford Madox Ford

Hemingway's first books, Three Stories and Ten Poems (1923), of which he received no advance at all, and In Our Time (1924), were published in Paris. The Torrents of Spring  (1926) was a parody of Sherwood Anderson's style. Hemingway's first serious novel was The Sun Also Rises (1926). The story, narrated by an American journalist, deals with a group of expatriates in France and Spain, members of the disillusioned "lost generation" of post-World War I.

The main characters are Lady Brett Ashley and Jake Barnes. Lady Brett loves Jake, who has been wounded in war and can't answer her needs. Although Hemingway never explicitly detailed Jake's injury, is seem that he has lost his testicles but not his penis. Jake and Brett and their odd group of friends have various adventures around Europe, in Madrid, Paris, and Pampalona. In attempt to cope with their despair they turn to alcohol, violence, and sex. As Jake, Hemingway was wounded in WW I; they share also interest in bullfighting. The story ends bitter-sweet. Brett says, "we could have had such a damned good time together." (Ibid., Random House, 1930, p. 258) Hemingway wrote and rewrote the novel in various parts of Spain and France between 1924 and 1926. It became his first great success. Although the Hemingway's language is simple, he used understatement and omission which make the text multilayered and rich in allusions.

After the publication of Men Without Women (1927), Hemingway returned to the United States, settling in Key West, Florida. Hemingway and Hadley divorced in 1927. On the same year Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer, a wealthy fashion editor, but at their first meeting, he had been more impressed by her sister Jinny. Hadley worked part-time for the Paris edition of Vogue magazine.

The newlyweds resided in an apartment on Rue Ferou. Since Hemingway had abandoned journalism and he had no regular income, Pauline's uncle covered their initial rent. The house had a garden courtyard, and the apartments included a large master bedroom, dining room with a kitchen, two bathrooms, a small study, a salon, and a spare room. In Florida Hemingway wrote A Farewell to Arms, which was published in 1929. Its scene is the Italian front in World War I, where two lovers find a brief happiness. The novel gained enormous critical and commercial success.

In 1930s Hemingway wrote such major works as Death in the Afternoon  (1932), a nonfiction account of Spanish bullfighting, and Green Hills of Africa (1935), a story of a hunting safari in East Africa. "All modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn," is perhaps the most quoted line from the story. But it continues: "If you read it you must stop where the Nigger Jim is stolen from the boys. That is the real end." (Ibid., Scribner, 2015, p. 17) To  Have and Have Not (1937) was made into a film by the director Howard Hawks. They had became friends in the late 1930s. Hawks also liked to hunt, fish, and drink, and the author got along with Hawk's wife Slim, who later said  that there was an immediate and instant attraction between them. According to a story, Hawks had told Hemingway that he can make "a movie out of the worst thing you ever wrote." The author has asked, "What's the worst thing I ever wrote?" and Haws said, "That piece of junk called To Have and Have Not." "I needed the money," Hemingway said. (Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox of Hollywood by Todd McCarthy, 1997, pp. 290-291) The screenplay of the film was made by Jules Furthman and William Faulkner.

Wallace Stevens once termed Hemingway "the most significant of living poets, so far as the subject of extraordinary reality is concerned." (How to Read and Why by Harold Bloom, 2001, p. 46) By "poet" Stevens referred to the author's stylistic achievements in his short fiction. Like Gertrude Stein, Hemingway applied techniques from modernist poetry to his writing, such as the artful use of repetition, although in lesser extent than Stein. Hemingway's much quoted "ice-berg theory" was: "If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about, he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling of those things as though the writer had stated them." (Death in the Afternoon by Ernest Hemingway, Penguin Books, 1976, p. 182)

One of Hemingway's most frequently anthologized short stories is 'The Snows of Kilimanjaro', first published in Esquire in August 1936. It begins with an epitaph telling that the western summit of the mountain is called the House of God, and close to it was found the carcass of a leopard. Down on the savanna the failed writer Harry is dying of gangrene in an hunting camp. "Now he would never write the things that he had saved to write until he knew enough to write them well." (The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories, Penguin Books, 1970, p. 9) Just before the end, Harry has a vision, that he is taken up the see the top of Kilimanjaro on a rescue plane - "as  wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievably white in the sun". (Ibid., p. 32) In the movie adaptation of the story, directed by Henry King, and starring Gregory Peck, Susan Hayward, and Ava Gardner, Harry does not die. Time said of the film: "The acting  honors are easily captured by a herd of hippopotami plunging like dolphins in an African river, and by a Hollywood hyena." (Time, September 22, 1952, in Some Like It Not: Bad Reviews of Great Movies by Adris Sillick and Michael Mc Cormick, 1996, p. 90)

Nick Adams, Hemingway's autobiographical pre-World War II character, featured in three collections, In Our Time, Men Without Women, and Winner Take Nothing (1933). While sailing across the Atlantic on the Ile de France in 1934, Hemingway met the actress Marlene Dietrich, whom he came to call unromantically as "My little Kraut" or "Dearest Kraut" but also "Marlene, darling". They became lifelong friends. Dietrich stored his letters, written between 1949 and 1953, in a fireproof box.

In 1937 Hemingway observed the Spanish Civil war firsthand. As many writers, he supported the cause of the Loyalist. In Madrid he met Martha Gellhorn, a writer and war correspondent, who became his third wife in 1940. The first years of his marriage were happy, but he soon realized that Gellhorn was not a housewife, but an ambitious journalist, eager to travel and "take the pulse of the nation" or the world. Hemingway turned out to be her "Unwilling Companion".

With For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) Hemingway returned again in Spain. He dedicated to book to Gellhorn - Maria in the story was partly modelled after her. "She had high cheekbones, merry eyes, and a straight mouth with full lips. Her hair was the golden brown of a grain field that has been burned dark in the sun," Hemingway wrote of his heroine. (Ibid., Penguin Books, 1963, p. 25) The story covered only a few days and concerned the blowing up of a bridge by a small group of partisans. When the heroine in A Farewell to Arms dies at the end of the story, after giving birth to a stillborn child, now it is time for the tragic hero, Robert Jordan, to sacricife himself. The theme of the coming of death also was central in the novel Across the River and into the Trees (1950).

Throughout his literary career, Hemingway's divided his time into long periods of leisure and work. In addition to hunting expeditions in Africa and Wyoming, Hemingway developed a passion for deep-sea fishing in the waters off Key West, the Bahamas, and Cuba. He also armed his fishing boat, the Pilar, and monitored with his crew Nazi activities and their submarines in that area during World War II. In 1940 Hemingway bought Finca Vigia, a house outside Havana, Cuba. Its surroundings were a paradise for his undisciplined bunch of cats.

In early 1941 Gellhorn made with Hemingway a long, 30,000 mile journey to China. Just before the Invasion of Normandy in 1944, Hemingway managed to get to London, where he settled at the Dorchester Hotel. Before it, he had taken Gellhorn's position as Collier's leading correspondent. She arrived two weeks later, and settled in a separate room. Hemingway observed the D-Day landing below the Normandy cliffs; Gellhorn went ashore with the troops. Back in Paris after many years, Hemingway spent much time at the Ritz Hotel, which he had "liberated" on the afternoon of August 25 by chasing out all the British soldiers, who had arrived an hour earlier.

Hemingways's divorce from Gellhorn in 1945 was bitter; at that time she was making more money than he. "Martha was the most ambitious woman who ever lived," Hemingway said. (Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir by A. E. Hotchner, Da Capo Press, 2004, p. 133) Gellhorn accused Hemingway of being jealous: "It took me a long time to realize that I was bullied when he kept saying my stuff was no good and that it was just an accident because I was a pretty young girl." ('Martha Gellhorn (1908-1998): Femme Fatale of American Letters' by Inez Hollander-Lake, in Uneasy Alliance: Twentieth-century American Literature, Culture and Biography, edited by Hans Bak, 2004, p. 158) In 1946 Hemingway returned to Cuba. After Gellhorn had left him, he married Mary Welsh, a correspondent for Time magazine, whom he had met in a London restaurant in 1944.

Already when he was a reporter, Hemingway used alcohol as a way to cope. He could tolerate large amounts of alcohol, and for a long time, drinking did not affect the quality of his writing. In the late 1940s he started to hear voices in his head, he was overweight, the blood pressure was high, and he had clear signs of cirrhosis of the liver. His ignorance of the dangers of liquor Hemingway revealed when he taught his 12-year-old son Patrick to drink. The same happened with his brothers. Patrick had later in life problems with alcohol. Gregory, who was a transvestite, used drugs - he died at the age of 69 in a women's prison in Florida.

While hunting ducks in 1948 at Baron Nanyuki Franchetti's lodge north of Venice, Hemingway met eighteen-year-old Adriana Ivancich, who had no experience with shooting ducks, but who became his young muse for five years. He wrote two fairy tales, which were illustrated by Adriana and published by the magazine Holiday. She was a model for the character Renata in Across the River and Into the Trees, Hemingway's first novel in a decade. In his letters to Adriana, Hemingway addressed her as "Adriana Hemingway" or "Hemingstein" and signed himself "Ernest Ivancich". 

Across the River and Into the Trees was poorly received, but the allegorical 27,000 word story The Old Man and the Sea, published first in Life magazine in 1952, restored again Hemingway's fame. The proragonist is an old Cuban fisherman named Santiago, who finally catches a giant marlin after weeks of disappointments. As he returns to the harbor, the sharks eat the fish, lashed to his boat. The model for Santiago was a Cuban fisherman, Gregorio Fuentes, who died in January 2002, at the age of 104. Fuentes had served as the captain of Hemingway's boat Pilar in the late 1930s and was occasionally his tapster. Hemingway also made a fishing trip to Peru in part to shoot footage for a film version of the Old Man and the Sea.

In 1959 Hemingway visited Spain, where her met the famous bullfighter Luis Miguel Dominquín at a hospital. Abull had caught Dominquín in the groin. "Why the hell do the good and brave have to die before everyone else?" he said. (Papa Hemingway: A Personal Memoir by A. E. Hotchner, Da Capo Press, 2004, p. 228) However, Dominquín did not die. Hemingway planned to write another book of bullfighting but published instead A Moveable Feast, a memoir of the 1920s in Paris.

Much of his time Hemingway spent in Cuba until the 1959 revolution. He met Fidel  Castro once, at a fishing tournament held in Hemingway's honor. The revolutionary leader caught the biggest fish and Hemingway presented him with the first prize. Hemingway was one of Castro's favorite writers, whose work he had read long before the revolution. Talking about For Whom the Bell Tolls Castro said that the novel "was one of my books that helped me plan the tactics with which to fight Batista's army . . . " (Ernesto: The Untold Story of Hemingway in Revolutionary Cuba by Andrew Feldman, 2019, p. 467)

When the living became too difficult, he moved to the United States. While visiting Africa in 1954, Hemingway was in two flying accidents and was taken to a hospital. In the same year he started to write True at First Light, which was his last full-length book. Part of it appeared in Sports Illustrated in 1972 under the title African Journal.

In 1960 Hemingway was hospitalized at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, for treatment of depression, and released in 1961. During this time he was given electric shock therapy for two months. He believed that FBI agents were following him, which was true: they had compiled a large file on him. On July 2 Hemingway committed suicide with his favorite shotgun at his home in Ketchum, Idaho. It has been said, that one of his cats, named Big Boy Peterson, was by his side. Several of Hemingway's novels have been published posthumously. True at First Light, depiction of a safari in Kenya, appeared in July 1999. It is one of the worst books written by a Nobel writer.
