Ter e Não Ter é a história dramática de Harry Morgan, natural de Key West, e da sua luta para ganhar a vida e manter a família. Harry, dono e piloto de um barco de aluguer para expedições de pesca, é obrigado durante o período da Depressão dos anos 30 a traficar imigrantes chineses e bebidas alcoólicas ilegais de Cuba para a costa americana. As suas aventuras fazem-no envolver-se com a gente abastada e dissoluta do mundo dos desportos náuticos, e viver uma estranha e improvável história de amor. Cruelmente realista, Ter e Não Ter, que retrata uma das mais subtis e comoventes relações amorosas de toda a obra de Hemingway, é um grande romance de aventuras como só ele os sabia escrever.
Ernest Miller Hemingway (Oak Park, 21 de Julho 1899—Ketchum, 2 de Julho 1961) foi um escritor norte-americano. Trabalhou como correspondente de guerra em Madrid durante a Guerra Civil Espanhola e a experiência inspirou uma de suas maiores obras, Por Quem os Sinos Dobram. Ao fim da Segunda Guerra Mundial se instalou em Cuba.
Ernest Hemingway did more to influence 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 him as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th 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.
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.
