According to Biographer Jeffrey Meyers in his biography, Hemingway met a young nurse, Agnes von Kurowsky, and fell deep in love with her. <br />Hemingway had been injured by mortar fire, encountered shrapnel wounds to both legs and had to have surgery. He was transferred to the Red Cross hospital in Milan, where Agnes was a nurse. <br />The two had intended on marrying, but Agnes said they had nothing more than a ‘boy and girl love’ and married an Italian Officer instead. This broke Hemingway and so his writing began. He wrote, “A Very Short Story and “A Farewell to Arms” about his and Agnes’ story. <br />Ernest Hemingway was married four times. <br />Hadley Richardson in 1922<br />One Son, John in 1923<br />Pauline Pfeiffer in 1927<br />Two Sons, Patrick in 1928 and George in 1931 <br />Martha Gellhorn in 1940<br />Mary Welsh in 1946<br />Relationships…<br />5<br />
