Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
This book is from the series "Writers and Their Works." Ernest Hemingway's childhood and development as an author begin the book. During World War I, his Red Cross service gave him the opportunity to directly observe the horrors of war and showed him the settings and characters he would later use in many articles and longer literary works. The war also was the cause of his being wounded, resulting in a permanent leg injury. War also brought him a measure of fame for his bravery under fire. During this period Hemingway had a serious love affair—his first but certainly not his last. After marrying and settling in Paris, he began to publish stories and poetry, as well as writing journalistic articles about how the war was effecting Europe and Europeans. As he traveled around Europe, his longer novels began to be published. Hemingway's reputation as a writer grew, along with his constant desire to find adventure in further travel. In the 1950s, although he had to seek medical assistance for various medical problems, he continued to travel, assisted usually by his current wife or lover. Finally, in 1954 he won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Unable to attend the actual ceremony, one of his written comments is often quoted: "Writing, at its best. is a lonely life." In 1960 he was hospitalized, and a short while later in a Minnesota hospital he was admitted for severe depression, hypertension, and high blood pressure. After receiving shock treatments he went to Idaho to recuperate but never fully recovered. In June of 1961 after he had been readmitted to the hospital and then released, he held his own shotgun to his forehead and committed suicide. The author presents a brief history ofthe period in which Hemingway lived and developed as a writer. "The Lost Generation" is a phrase that is linked to Hemingway's name because he spent so much time out of his native country in the company of other Americans who were living and working abroad as a disillusioned artistic group. World War I and its effects changed how societies viewed war and the participants in it. Part II of this book deals with both Hemingway's journalism career and his turning toward longer fiction and nonfiction. The main theme in most of his fiction is the inevitability of death. What seemed important to Hemingway is how his characters live their lives before dying. The author includes much description about The Sun Also Rises, with detailed summations of each chapter. Hemingway referred to this novel as "a moral book." Characters are the walking wounded, searching for a new code of behavior after enduring the war. The analysis of other works occupies the rest of the book. Readers may find it interesting to read that Hemingway left four unfinished novels at his death in 1961. He remains one of America's most significant literary figures. Readers will find the chronology, list of works, filmography, and other materials including a bibliography, good sources for additional information. The author teaches writing, film, and literature and is an award-winning poet, fiction writer, playwright, and composer-musician. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy
