Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
They are a highly readable feast, these 172 articles written by Hemingway for the Toronto Star between early 1920 and late 1924. They range from amusing sketches of everyday life in Toronto to firsthand and sometimes quite lengthly reports on the social and political scene in postwar Europe. Whether the subjects are Lloyd George's visit to Canada, the behavior of women at prize-fights, Christmas in Paris, bullfighting in Pamplona, France's political woes, Mussolini's Fascists or Toronto's young Communists, the pieces invariably exhibit Hemingway's expertise at digging out the facts, his uncanny grasp of dialogue and his shining simplicity of style. They also contain a surprisingly strong element of humor. Here is Hemingway ironically knowing, skilled in his craft and very wide awake, a literary apprentice who hardly seems an apprentice. November 18
Library Journal
Hemingway undervalued his journal ism, insisting it was ``timely rather than permanent.'' But many of the 172 arti cles he wrote for the Toronto Star merit attention and admiration. On assign ment in post-war Europe, Hemingway observed and absorbed many of the subjects (war and love, courage and sham, cruelty and injustice) that were to shape his fiction. His prose style also began to assume its distinctive rhythms and diction. Several of these dispatches would reappear,shrewdly altered, as vi gnettes in In Our Time (the thrill of trout and tuna fishing; the conscious ness of bullfighting as more than sport``a very great tragedy''). In By - line: Ernest Hemingway (Scribner, 1967), William White included only 29 of these pieces. The full edition is most welcome. Arthur Waldhorn, English Dept., City Coll., CUNY
Library Journal
These dual collections offer a very broad selection of the Nobel laureate's short works. Gleaned from several volumes, the stories run the gamut of Hemingway's career, from uneven fledgling attempts such as "Up in Michigan" to masterpieces like "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," written at the height of his powers, with an amalgam of his often overlooked Nick Adams stories ("The End of Something," "The Three Day Blow"), hardboiled bits ("Fifty Grand"), and favorites ("Hills Like White Elephants," "The Killers") in between. Both programs are read by actor Stacy Keach, a Hemingway fan, whose voice lends itself nicely to the material, handling both American and foreign accents well without exaggeration, although his rendition of "Snows" takes a back seat to Charlton Heston's reading. Anyone considering these for classroom use, need note that Hemingway was a man of his time and very politically incorrect by today's standards; several of these tales include the dreaded "n" word among other disparaging terms. That said, this nonetheless is a marvelous compilation, a delectable treat for Hemingway fans. Highly recommended.-Michael Rogers, "Library Journal" Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.

Biography

Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), born in Oak Park, Illinois, started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City at the age of seventeen. Before the United States entered the First World War, he joined a volunteer ambulance unit in the Italian army. Serving at the front, he was wounded, was decorated by the Italian Government, and spent considerable time in hospitals. After his return to the United States, he became a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers and was soon sent back to Europe to cover such events as the Greek Revolution.

During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises (1926). Equally successful was A Farewell to Arms (1929), the study of an American ambulance officer's disillusionment in the war and his role as a deserter. Hemingway used his experiences as a reporter during the civil war in Spain as the background for his most ambitious novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Among his later works, the most outstanding is the short novel, The Old Man and the Sea (1952), the story of an old fisherman's journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat.

Hemingway -- himself a great sportsman -- liked to portray soldiers, hunters, bullfighters - tough, at times primitive people whose courage and honesty are set against the brutal ways of modern society, and who in this confrontation lose hope and faith. His straightforward prose, his spare dialogue, and his predilection for understatement are particularly effective in his short stories, some of which are collected in Men Without Women (1927) and The Fifth Column and the First Forty-Nine Stories (1938). Hemingway died in Idaho in 1961.

Preface

The first four stories are the last ones I have written. The others follow in the order in which they were originally published.

The first one I wrote was Up in Michigan, written in Paris in 1921. The last was Old Man at the Bridge cabled from Barcelona in April of 1938.

Beside The Fifth Column, I wrote The Killers, Today Is Friday, Ten Indians, part of The Sun Also Rises and the first third of To Have and Have Not in Madrid. It was always a good place for working. So was Paris, and so were Key West, Florida, in the cool months; the ranch, near Cooke City, Montana; Kansas City; Chicago; Toronto, and Havana, Cuba.

Some other places were not so good but maybe we were not so good when we were in them.

There are many kinds of stories in this book. I hope that you will find some that you like. Reading them over, the ones I liked the best, outside of those that have achieved some notoriety so that school teachers include them in story collections that their pupils have to buy in story courses, and you are always faintly embarrassed to read them and wonder whether you really wrote them or did you maybe hear them somewhere, are The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, In Another Country, Hills Like White Elephants, A Way You'll Never Be, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, A Clean Well-Lighted Place, and a story called The Light of the World which nobody else ever liked. There are some others too. Because if you did not like them you would not publish them.

In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dull and know I had to put it on the grindstone again and hammer it into shape and put a whetstone to it, and know that I had something to write about, than to have it bright and shining and nothing to say, or smooth and well-oiled in the closet, but unused.

Now it is necessary to get to the grindstone again. I would like to live long enough to write three more novels and twenty-five more stories. I know some pretty good ones.

Introduction

Publisher's Preface

There has long been a need for a complete and up-to-date edition of the shortstories of Ernest Hemingway. Until now the only such volume was the omnibuscollection of the first forty-nine stories published in 1938 together withHemingway's play The Fifth Column. That was a fertile period ofHemingway's writing and a number of stories based on his experiences in Cubaand Spain were appearing in magazines, but too late to have been included in"The First Forty-nine."

In 1939 Hemingway was already considering a new collection of stories thatwould take its place beside the earlier books In Our Time, Men WithoutWomen, and Winner Take Nothing. On February 7 he wrote from his homein Key West to his editor Maxwell Perkins at Scribners suggesting such a book.At that time he had already completed five stories: "The Denunciation," "TheButterfly and the Tank," "Night Before Battle," "Nobody Ever Dies," and"Landscape with Figures," which is published here for the first time. A sixthstory, "Under the Ridge," would appear shortly in the March 1939 edition ofCosmopolitan.

As it turned out, Hemingway's plans for that new book did not pan out. He hadcommitted himself to writing three "very long" stories to round out thecollection two dealing with battles in the Spanish Civil War and one about theCuban fisherman who fought a swordfish for four days and four nights only tolose it to sharks. But once Hemingway got underway on his novel -- later published as For Whom the Bell Tolls -- all other writing projects werelaid aside. We can only speculate on the two war stories he abandoned, but itis probable that much of what they mighthrs in the history of literature, and his stories taken as a whole present a world of experience. In 1918 he signed up for ambulance duty in Italy as a member of an American Field Service unit. It was his first transatlantic journey and he was eighteen at the time. On the day of his arrival in Milan a munitions factory blew up, and with the other volunteers in his contingent Hemingway was assigned to gather up the remains of the dead. Only three months later he was badly wounded in both legsand hospitalized in the American Red Cross hospital in Milan, with subsequentoutpatient treatment. These wartime experiences, including the people he met,provided many details for his novel of World War I, A Farewell to Arms.They also inspired five short story masterpieces.

In the 1920s he revisited Italy several times; sometimes as a professionaljournalist and sometimes for pleasure. His short story about a motor trip witha friend through Mussolini's Italy, "Che Ti Dice La Patria?," succeeds inconveying the harsh atmosphere of a totalitarian regime.

Between 1922 and 1924 Hemingway made several trips to Switzerland to gathermaterial for The Toronto Star. His subjects included economic conditionsand other practical subjects, but also accounts of Swiss winter sports:bobsledding, skiing, and the hazardous luge. As in other fields, Hemingway wasahead of his compatriots in discovering places and pleasures that would becometourist attractions. At the same time, he was storing up ideas for a number ofhis short stories, with themes ranging from the comic to the serious and themacabre.

Hemingway attended his first bullfight, in the company of American friends, in1923, when he made an excursion to Madrid from Paris, where he was living atthe time. From the moment the first bull burst into the ring he was overwhelmedby the experience and left the scene a lifelong fan. For him the spectacle of aman pitted against a wild bull was a tragedy rather than a sport. He wasfascinated by its techniques and conventions, the skill and courage required bythe toreros, and the sheer violence of the bulls. He soon became anacknowledged expert on bullfighting and wrote a famous treatise on the subject,Death in the Afternoon. A number of his stories also have bullfightingthemes.

In time, Hemingway came to love all of Spain -- its customs, its landscapes,its art treasures, and its people. When the Spanish Civil War broke out in thelast week of July 1936, he was a staunch supporter of the Loyalists, helping toprovide support for their cause and covering the war from Madrid as acorrespondent for the North American Newspaper Alliance. Out of the entirety ofhis experiences in Spain during the war he produced seven short stories inaddition to his novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and his play, TheFifth Column. It was one of the most prolific and inspired periods of hiswriting career.

In 1933, when his wife Pauline's wealthy uncle Gus Pfeiffer offered to stakethe Hemingways to an African safari, Ernest was totally captivated by theprospect and made endless preparations, including inviting a company of friendsto join them and selecting suitable weapons and other equipment for the trip.

The safari itself lasted about ten weeks, but everything he saw seems to havemade an indelible impression on his mind. Perhaps he regained, as the result ofhis enthusiasm and interest, a childlike capacity to re cord details almostphotographically. It was his first meeting with the famous white hunter PhillipPercival, whom he admired at once for his cool and sometimes cunningprofessionalism. At the end of the safari, Hemingway had filled his mind withimages, incidents, and character studies of unique value for his writings. Asthe harvest of the trip he wrote the nonfiction novel Green Hills ofAfrica, and some of his finest stories. These include "The Short Happy Lifeof Francis Macomber" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" as well as "An AfricanStory," which appeared as a story within a story in The Garden of Eden,a novel published posthumously in May 1986.

In spite of the obvious importance of the Paris years on Hemingway'sdevelopment as a writer, few of his short stories have French settings. He wasaware of that fact and in his preface to A Moveable Feast wistfullymentions subjects that he might have written about, some of which might havebecome short stories.

During World War II Hemingway served as a war correspondent covering theNormandy invasions and the liberation of Paris. It seems that he also assembled a group of extramilitary scouts keeping pace with the retreating Germans. The balance between fiction and nonfiction in his stories of the period, including the previously unpublished "Black Ass at the Cross Roads," may never be determined.

Toward the end of his life Hemingway wrote two fables for the child of afriend, "The Good Lion" and "The Faithful Bull," which were published byHoliday in 1951 and are reprinted here. He also published two shortstories in The Atlantic Monthly, "Get a Seeing-Eyed Dog," and "A Man of the World" both December 20, 1957.

We have g rouped seven previously unpublished works of fiction at the back ofthe book. Four of these represent completed short stories; the other threecomprise extended scenes from unpublished, uncompleted novels.

All in all, this Finca Vigía edition contains twenty-one stories that were not included in "The First Forty-nine." The collection is named for Hemingway's home in San Francisco de Paula, Cuba. He lived at Finca Vigía "Lookout Farm" on and off during the last two decades of his life. The finca was dear to his heart and it seems appropriate now that it should contain a major portion of his life work, which was even more dear.

Foreword

Foreword

When Papa and Marty first rented in 1940 the Finca Vigía which was to be his home for the next twenty-two years until his death, there was still a real country on the south side. This country no longer exists. It was not done in by middle-class real estate developers like Chekhov's cherry orchard, which might have been its fate in Puerto Rico or Cuba without the Castro revolution, but by the startling growth of the population of poor people and their shack housing which is such a feature of all the Greater Antilles, no matter what their political persuasion.

As children in the very early morning lying awake in bed in our own little house that Marty had fixed up for us, we used to listen for the whistling call of the bobwhites in that country to the south.

It was a country covered in manigua thicket and in the tall flamboyante trees that grew along the watercourse that ran through it, wild guinea fowl used to come and roost in the evening. They would be calling to each other, keeping in touch with each other in the thicket, as they walked and scratched and with little bursts of running moved back toward their roosting trees at the end of their day's foraging in the thicket.

Manigua thicket is a scrub acacia thornbush from Africa, the first seeds of which the Creoles say came to the island between the toes of the black slaves. The guinea fowl were from Africa too. They never really became as tame as the other barnyard fowl the Spanish settlers brought with them and some escaped and throve in the monsoon tropical climate, just as Papa told us some of the black slaves had escaped from the shipwreck of slave ships onthe coast ofght of Saint Elmo's fire.

During the early years at the finca, Papa did not appear to write any fiction at all. He wrote many letters, of course, and in one of them he says that it is his turn to rest. Let the world get on with the mess it had gotten itself into.

Marty was the one who seemed to write and to have kept her taste for the high excitement of their life together in Madrid during the last period of the Spanish Civil War. Papa and she played a lot of tennis with each other on the clay court down by the swimming pool and there were often tennis parties with their friends among the Basque professional jai alai players from the fronton in Havana. One of these was what the young girls today would call a hunk, and Marty flirted with him a little and Papa spoke of his rival, whom he would now and again beat at tennis by the lowest form of cunning expressed in spins and chops and lobs against the towering but uncontrolled honest strength of the rival.

It was all great fun for us, the deep-sea fishing on the Pilar that Gregorio Fuentes, the mate, kept always ready for use in the little fishing harbor of Cojimar, the live pigeon shooting at the Club de Cazadores del Cerro, the trips into Havana for drinks at the Floridita and to buy The Illustrated London News with its detailed drawings of the war so far away in Europe.

Papa, who was always very good at that sort of thing, suggested a quotation from Turgenev to Marty: "The heart of another is a dark forest," and she used part of it for the title of a work of fiction she had just completed at the time.

Although the Finca Vigía collection contains all the stories that appearedin the first comprehensive collection of Papa's short stories published in 1938, those stories are now well known. Much of this collection's interest to the reader will no doubt be in the stories that were written or only came to light after he came to live at the Finca Vigía.
