Overview

Quicklets: Learn More. Read Less. About Ernest Hemingway Born in Oak Park, Illinois in 1899, Ernest Miller Hemingway went on to become one of the most important writers in American history. At 17, he began his writing career as a reporter for the Kansas City Star and a year later served as a voluntary ambulance driver on the Italian front in the First World War. His experiences in Italy and later as a reporter in Europe undoubtedly influenced his writing, known for themes of love and the conflict of war. In the 1920s, Hemingway moved to Paris, where he famously hung out with a group of expatriate writers and artists, including Gertrude Stein and James Joyce. Based on his experiences there, The Sun Also Rises was his first novel and published in 1926. Other major works include A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls and The Old Man and the Sea. In 1954, Hemingway received the Nobel Prize for Literature. Nearly as dramatic as his stories, Hemingway also garnered much attention for his personal life. He was married four times, mistakenly reported dead after a series of plane crashes in Africa, and committed suicide in his home in Ketchum, Idaho in 1961. He was 61. About The Sun Also Rises Released by American publishing house Scribners, the first edition of The Sun Also Rises consisted of just over 5,000 copies in 1926. Due to its huge popularity in the United States, it was published again in Britain in 1927 under the title Fiesta. Written when Hemingway was 26, the work launched the author squarely onto the map of great American writers and inspired countless readers who imitated its iconic characters. Today the book is one of the most constantly printed American novels in history and has been translated into several languages, including Spanish, German, Portuguese, Japanese and Chinese. Its been adapted numerous times for the screen and stage, including the well-known 1957 film starring Tyrone Power and Eva Gardner and most recently as a production called The Select at the New York Theater Workshop. BOOK EXCERPT FROM THE ERNEST HEMINGWAY QUICKLET: THE SUN ALSO RISES Jake is sitting at a table on the terrace at Cafe Napolitain alone after Cohn has left.
