Hemingway Presentation

  1. 1. How Hemingway’s eccentric life was demonstrated in his writings<br />Andrea Jones<br />
  2. 2. Some arguments on why Hemingway’s writings remain such an enigmatic presence in the literary world:<br />Writing Style<br />Ability to write descriptively <br />The fast life in which he lived<br />
  3. 3. It was his ability to draw from his own eccentric life experiences and put those experiences into a story that elevated him.<br />
  4. 4. Anders Hallengren said:<br />“The author, who never kept a journal or wrote and autobiography in his life, draws on experience for his realism, slightly transforming events in his life.”<br />
  5. 5. Hemmingway’s ability to describe throughhis writing:<br />“Just as Hemingway’s chiseled prose brings us to breathe the air in his characters breathe and feel their emotions at a remove, so that same prose makes us taste the meals they eat and savor the wines they sip in a world as three dimensional as good writing can make it.” ~Kelly Dupris<br />
  6. 6. Hemingway’s Sex Life<br />It may be surmised that he struggled with various aspects of sexuality and his writings may be reflective of his personal experiences.<br /> In the “Garden of Eden,” Hemingway celebrates a woman who controls the sexual relationship with her husband and initiates female-on-male sodomy.<br />
  7. 7. In an effort to capture the realism for his book “Under Kilimanjaro,” Hemingway would hunt barefoot at night with a spear.<br />“Hemingway wanted to inhabit the place seriously more than he wanted to produce artifacts about brief visits.” ~Ryan Hediger<br />
  8. 8. In a letter Hemingway wrote to his father, he describes it best:<br />“You see I am trying in all my stories to get the feeling of the actual life across – not just depict life – or criticize it – but to actually make it alive. So that when you have read something by me you actually experience the thing.”<br />
