Overview

The preeminent writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway wrote emotionally resonant 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, cruelty, 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 and frustration, these tales pay tribute to a writer who changed the way fiction was written and read in the twentieth century.
