Overview

The preeminent American writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway wrote provocative fiction steeped in the experiences of the "lost generation" that came of age during World War I.

Overview

The preeminent American writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway wrote provocative fiction steeped in the experiences of the "lost generation" that came of age during World War I. His tales of American expatriates aimlessly adrift in postwar Europe and people struggling with dignity to persevere in a world marked by violence, cruely, and senseless death capture the disillusionment and cynicism that were part of the spirit of the age.
 
This literary omnibus collects Hemingway's four best-known novels--The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea. Written with Hemingway's trademark economy of style, but evocative in their delineations of individuals seeking purpose in lives shaped by futility, frustration, and disappointment, these tales pay tribute to a writer who changed the way that fiction was written and read in the twentieth century.
 
Ernest Hemingway: Four Novels is one of Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. This exquisitve collectible edition features an elegant bonded-leather binding, a satin-ribbon bookmark, colorful endpapers, and distinctive gilt edging. It's the perfect gift for book-lovers and an artful addition to any home library.

    An excellent collection

    I read a few Hemingway stories back in High School. My teacher was very thorough in his explanation of the "lost generation" writers and their influence on literature. At the time I found it pretty interesting but it wasn't until a few years later that I have come to truly appreciate authors like Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    Hemingway in particular interests me and the themes and motifs in his stories speak to me.

    This particular book collects 4 stories by Hemingway. The stories themselves are the ones he wrote with no changes obviously. The book itself is attractive. It's just how it looks on the website. It's bound pretty nice in tight in leather and it's quite comfortable to read wile in bed or on a desk.

    If your a fan of his stories don't pass this one up. I do hope we get more leather bound classic collections like this from other authors like John Stienbeck, Mark Twain and F. Scott Fitzgerald.

    The book is beautiful but overall I would not read it if I were you. The gold around the edges of the paper comes off in a dust and embeds itself in the skin. I'm worried about people being injured by this book. Also, the fact that it was printed in China is a little unsettling considering their propensity for lead based paints. Also, some of the pages aren't cut right and have been folded inside so that you can't see the missing gold lined pages. If you want something that will look nice sitting on or off your book case, buy it. If you want to be able to hold and read a beautiful book with out worrying about gold flakes getting embedded into your skin or flying into your eyes, don't waste your money.

    Execellent quality!

    I gave this book to a young friend just starting to read the classics. He loves this entire B&N leatherbound series. I find it to be a wonderful value and a fantastic way to help readers build a library.

    Handsome cover - you must obtain this book for your collection.

    I haven't started reading this book but it's a very handsome looking book. I read "The Old Man of Sea" in high school and I cannot wait to re-read it again some 30 years later.

    This is one of a number of classic books that I've recently purchased from Barnes & Nobles to fill my newly constructed library bookcases.

    A Masterful Collection by a Masterful American Treasure

    The author needs no introduction but if you've never read Hemingway, this a beautiful volume with which to start. If you are a fan of Papa, this beautifully bound volume will complete your collection and beckon you to read again.
