Overview

On the heels of Cuba's release of the celebrated "Hemingway Collection" comes a compelling look at the life of the American author who single-handedly changed the face of literature by cutting through the pretension and penning his timeless tales in remarkably simple, but strikingly effective, prose. In literally throwing himself into a variety of challenging and potentially life-threatening situations, Ernest Hemingway effectively swayed public perception of writers from that of presumed privilege to that of bold action. With such major works as The Old Man and the Sea and For Whom the Bell Tolls reprinted in as many as 20 languages and still selling strong well into the new millennium, Hemingway's writings have continued to influence and inspire generations of writers and prove that success will come naturally if you truly put your heart and soul into your work.
