Ernest Hemingway Essay
Ernest Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899 in a small community of Oak Park, Illinois. He was
the second child out of six, with four sisters and one brother. The area Ernest grew up in was a very
conservative area of Illinois and was raised with values of strong religion, hard work, physical fitness
and self–determination. His household was a very strict one that didn't allow any enjoyment on
Sundays and disobedience was strictly punished. Ernest's father taught him good morals and values
that he if he followed that he would be good in life. His father also taught him to hunt and fish
around the Lake Michigan area and to love nature. The family would spend their summers in the
wilderness and their winters back near Chicago. For the rest...show more content...
Hemingway heard about the Red Cross's mission to find ambulance drivers for the war. The Red
Cross accepted Hemingway in and he was first shipped to Italy. Ernest was very proud because he
knew that ambulance drivers were important personnel and played a very important part in the war.
They had to risk their own lives and go into battlefields and pick up the wounded or dead. His
initiation in the ambulance corps was a remarkable first day because a munitions depot exploded.
He found himself on his first day picking up body parts and wounded people. Two days after that
he was sent to an ambulance unit in a place called Schio which he found very boring and
demanded a different assignment. He signed up for a canteen duty that mounted canteens that fed
and provided for the troops who were on the 'battlefield'. A little later he was hit by Austrian
artillery and shrapnel was stuck in his leg. It took him several months to walk again fully, but this
longed stay at the hospital had some positive to it too. He formed a romance with a nurse named
Agnes von Kurowsky, which he considered as one of his first loves. Hemingway's wounding by
artillery his recovery at a hospital in Milan, including the relationship with this nurse Agnes von
Kurowsky, all inspired his great novel A Farewell To Arms.
When Hemingway returned home from Italy, he found his hometown dull from the war and romance
of Agnes that he had just left. His

Ernest Hemingway – The Man and His Work On July 2, 1961, a writer whom many critics call the
greatest writer of this century, a man who had a zest for adventure, a winner of the Nobel Prize and
the Pulitzer Prize, a man who held esteem everywhere – on that July day, that man put a shotgun to
his head and killed himself. That man was Ernest Hemingway. Though he chose to end his life, his
heart and soul lives on through his many books and short stories. Hemingway's work is his voice on
how he viewed society, specifically American society and the values it held. No other author of this
century has had such a general and lasting influence on the generation which grew up between the
world wars as Ernest Hemingway (Lania 5). The youth that...show more content...
When his first test on the field of battle occurs, however, he sees the truth of war as a friend dies
in his arms. At first the reader may think that the lieutenant was insensitive, but his true feelings
show in these two lines: "I wiped my hand on my shirt and another floating light came very slowly
down and I looked at my leg and was very afraid. Oh, God, I said, get me out of here."
(Hemingway 55) From this point on the war begins to break him down. The lieutenant's
increasing consumption of alcohol lets on that he is trying to avoid thinking about what has
happened to him. The wine flows so freely that the porter at the hospital carries out the
lieutenant's trash by the sack load. The drinking causes him to have jaundice as well as happy
thoughts...the price he pays for the liquor. Hemingway shows American drinking habits in this
book which coincide with Stein's idea. Frederick, like many men and women in the 1920's,
sought to avoid his problems by turning to alcohol to make him feel better about himself and his
situation. Along with a drinking problem the bedridden man decides to take his nurse as his lover.
Lieutenant Frederick convinces himself he is in love with her and thinks nothing of it when he
finds the nurse is with child. To avert his attention from the war he takes responsibility for
Catherine and in the end becomes a deserter only to have his lover die in the end. Sex without
marriage plays a major role in the book, as it was a characteristic of America's

Ernest Hemingway
In A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, the author used very short, choppy language that was
not typical for the time period of the book. Despite the fact that he did not use long traditional
sentences, Hemingway still managed to produce detailed passages with plenty of imagery to help the
reader immerse themselves into the story. By illustrating settings, characterizing characters, and
describing their feelings. Surprisingly, it was still possible to create detailed passages even with
Ernest Hemingway's choppy and staccato writing style. Ernest Hemingway was one of the first
great authors to use short language and still be descriptive. There was a great example of this in the
text when he wrote, "The piece of timber swung in...show more content...
One of the first secondary characters introduced was Catherine Barkley: "Miss Barkley was quite
tall. She wore what seemed to me to be a nurse's uniform, was blond and had tawny skin and gray
eyes." (Hemingway 18) Using his concise wording, Hemingway still managed to create a
descriptive passage that made it clear to the reader exactly what Miss Barkley looked like. Even
though Hemingway uses such plain language, it is not necessarily a bad thing. A professor at Penn
State University wrote that Hemingway was one of the few authors that could write such detailed
passages with such straightforward words when he said, "Nevertheless his powers of description are
not diminished by his taking care to choose such simple language." (Markley) When done right, this
writing style can be effective and sometimes better than more drawn out descriptive

Ernest M. Hemingway
Ernest Miller Hemingway was a novelist and short story writer, who became well known for the
passion that he used in all his writings. Many of his works are regarded as classics of
American Literature, and some have even been made into motion pictures. The Old Man and the
Sea, which is the story about an old Cuban fisherman, was published in 1952. Because of this
creation, in 1954 Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize in
Literature.
Hemingway was born in Oak Park, Illinois. He was educated in Oak Park High School and
graduated in 1917. After graduating,
Hemingway became a reporter for the Kansas City Star. He left his job within a few months to serve

In some parts of this country, fishing is their only way of survival. By fishing they are able to feed
themselves and their families. They also sell fish in order to attain money to purchase any more
materials and equipment that they may need in the future.
"Hemingway's economical writing style often seems simple and almost childlike, but his method is
calculated and used to complex effect." Hemingway provided detached descriptions of action using
simple nouns and verbs to capture the scenes precisely in his writing. He avoided describing his
characters' emotions and feelings by using this method of writing. Instead,
Hemingway would use small phrases to describe his characters.
His writing tried to express a feeling that would capture the readers' attention and help them visualize
the scene as if they were really there. He believed that if the writer was actually in the situation that
he is writing about, the story would get straight to the point and would eliminate all the little details.
Hemingway's style of writing has had an enormous influence on
American writers. Many American writers have followed the footsteps of Hemingway and have tried
or are now using his method. Ernest Hemingway had a lot of important thoughts when writing each
and every one of his novelettes. He used themes of helplessness and defeat in his original work, but
he began to express concern about social problems in the late 1930's.

I. Introduction
Across more than half a century, the life and work of Ernest Hemingway have been at the center of
controversy and intrigue. From the moment he embarked on his career as a writer, he presented
himself to the world as a man's man, a sportsman, a street–wise reporter, a heroic, battle–scared
soldier, and an aficionado of the Spanish bullfight, among other talents. His legend and mastery of so
many abilities almost seems to colossal for one man, yet those who knew him say he was a crack
shot, an expert amateur boxer, and a considerable military genius. All of these...show more content...
With the desire to write pouring through his veins, Hemingway the writer was forever changed by
war. One might even say that it brought out the best of him, as where other writers cowered,
Hemingway stood tall and proud. That is the way he will always be remembered.
II. Childhood
As Hemingway is a writer of experience and was profoundly affected as a boy as well as a man, it
is important to note the effects of his childhood on his writing. Born in Oak Park, Illinois on 21
July 1899, Ernest Miller Hemingway was one of six children. His father was a medical practitioner,
but felt most at home in nature with a gun or fishing pole, which explains two of Hemingway's
passions and his love of nature. At school he possessed many talents including football, athletics,
boxing, being a member of the debate team, and a member of the school orchestra. His most
important academic endeavor was his early commitment to writing, which included editing a weekly
news–sheet and writing poetry and prose for the school's literary magazine.
Hemingway's exposure to literature in high school was predominantly British. Only a handful of
American writers enjoyed full representation in the unusually well stocked local library, whereas
every standard British writer from Shakespeare onward was available in depth. The school's
preoccupation

Essay about Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway based his writing on real life experiences concerning death, relationships, and
lies. He then mixed these ideas, along with a familiar setting, to create a masterpiece. Hemingway
was born on July 21, 1899 in Oak Park Illinois. One of Hemmingway's first works was Indian Camp
published in 1925. In many ways Indian Camp shows the relationship between Hemingway and his
father. Hemingway then digs deeper into the past to create the love between Frederick Henry and
Catherine Barkley, in A Farwell To Arms. Hemingway was later able to reflect his disgust ofhome
life when he portrayed himself as the character Krebs in Soldiers Home, the character had problems
with lies, women, and at home....show more content...
Ed worked everyday to come home and have to clean the house, prepare the food, and tend to the
children. He had promised Grace that if she would marry him, she would not have to do housework
for as long as she lived. Ill and depressed, Ed Hemingway committed suicide in 1928. Hemingway
later stated "I hated my mother as soon as I knew the score and love my father had for her, until he
embarrassed me with the cowardice." (Myers 212). Hemingway used Indian Camp to express his
feelings about how his father was a coward. He did this by having Nicks father refer to suicide as
being pretty easy, which is compared to a coward's way of life.
The characters and setting of Indian Camp are influenced by Hemingway's childhood. In much of
the same way, Hemingway's second novel, A Farwell To Arms, has influences from his adult years
spent in the war. A Farwell To Arms is a love story that occurs during World War I. Fredrick Henry,
the main character is an ambulance driver who is wounded in the trenches. He is then sent to a
hospital in Milan to recover. During his stay, he falls in love with a nurse named Catherine
Barkley. The couple then flees to Switzerland to escape the war and have a child together. The
novel then takes an evil twist at the end, Catherine dies while she is in labor, leaving Henry alone
(Myers 22).
When comparing Hemingway to the character Fredrick Henry there are some very obvious

Essay Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway's tough, terse prose and short, declarative sentences did more to change the style
of written English that any other writing in the twentieth century. Ernest Hemingway had many
great accomplishments in his historical life but one event sticks out from the rest. The Old Man
and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in Language of great simplicity and
power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the
Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of
courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss. Written in 1952, this hugely
successful novel confirmed his power and presence in the literacy...show more content...
He would later adapt this style to his fiction. In May of 1918, Hemingway became an honorary
second lieutenant in the Red Cross. He could not join the army due to a defective left eye
(resentfully inherited from his mother). On his first day of service across seas, he and other
ambulance drivers were assigned the horrific duty of picking up body parts from an exploded
munitions factory. Death, mostly of women, on such a scale was most definitely another very
shocking moment in Hemingway's young life. But he soon recovered from this experience and
became known as the man who was always where the action is. He would often sneak cigarettes
and chocolate to soldiers on the Italian front. It was on one of these occasions that he was
severely wounded by an Austrian trench mortar. Even with over a hundred pieces of shrapnel and
an Austrian machine gun bullet logged in his leg he managed to carry a wounded soldier a
hundred yards to safety. He got the Italian Medal of Valor for his courageous action. He spent his
recovery time at the Ospedale Croce Rossa Americana, in Milan. It is there that he met and fell for a
thirty year–old nurse called Agnes Hannah. To Ernest's disappointment, Agnes was not willing to
embark in a relationship. Ernest, who had not yet turned twenty, who was a war hero, a journalist
and a wounded soldier, was too

Ernest Hemingway was an American writer. He was born in 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois. He
committed suicide in 1961 in Ketchum, Idaho (Burges 17). Even today Hemingway is one of the
most recognized authors in the world. Hemingway's experiences during World War I are directly
shown in many of his works. His general outlook on life is reflected in the adventures of his
characters. It is clear that Hemingway had a desire to be part of the war even though, due to bad
vision he was unable to enlist in the army and fight in the war. Instead he lied about his age and
went to Italy to become an ambulance driver. While in Italy he experienced many things that he
would later go on to write about in works such as A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the...show more

While at post one night Hemingway was first wounded by an Austrian mortar shell, then the same
night he was further wounded by machine gun fire while he was carrying an Italian soldier to
safety. Though badly wounded his injuries were not fatal; all his injures where contained to his legs
(www.timelesshemingway.com). Hemingway spent five days in a field hospital before an
excruciating train trip to Milan. In Milan things took an upward turn when surgery was successful.
Hemingway was regarded as a hero and reported in newspapers and newsreels at home as the first
American wounded in Italy (TimelessHemingway 2). It is debatable whether this was true but no
matter, Hemingway was enjoying himself.
World War One was the setting of many of Hemingway's stories. He used his personal experiences
as their basis but enhanced them greatly. In 1929 Hemingway published A Farewell to Arms; the
novel that many critics consider to be the best ever written about World War One (Burgess 56). It
is based on Hemingway's personal experiences during the war. The main character, Lt. Frederic
Henry, is wounded, just as Hemingway was. He is hospitalized and falls in love with a nurse.
Hemingway also fell in love with his wartime nurse. But Hemingway took the characters further than
his wartime experience. He created action from later experiences. He was very good at putting
things together. He made up whatever he needed to suit his purposes (Hemingway 87). If the actual
events worked, he stuck

  • 1. Ernest Hemingway Essay Ernest Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899 in a small community of Oak Park, Illinois. He was the second child out of six, with four sisters and one brother. The area Ernest grew up in was a very conservative area of Illinois and was raised with values of strong religion, hard work, physical fitness and self–determination. His household was a very strict one that didn't allow any enjoyment on Sundays and disobedience was strictly punished. Ernest's father taught him good morals and values that he if he followed that he would be good in life. His father also taught him to hunt and fish around the Lake Michigan area and to love nature. The family would spend their summers in the wilderness and their winters back near Chicago. For the rest...show more content... Hemingway heard about the Red Cross's mission to find ambulance drivers for the war. The Red Cross accepted Hemingway in and he was first shipped to Italy. Ernest was very proud because he knew that ambulance drivers were important personnel and played a very important part in the war. They had to risk their own lives and go into battlefields and pick up the wounded or dead. His initiation in the ambulance corps was a remarkable first day because a munitions depot exploded. He found himself on his first day picking up body parts and wounded people. Two days after that he was sent to an ambulance unit in a place called Schio which he found very boring and demanded a different assignment. He signed up for a canteen duty that mounted canteens that fed and provided for the troops who were on the 'battlefield'. A little later he was hit by Austrian artillery and shrapnel was stuck in his leg. It took him several months to walk again fully, but this longed stay at the hospital had some positive to it too. He formed a romance with a nurse named Agnes von Kurowsky, which he considered as one of his first loves. Hemingway's wounding by artillery his recovery at a hospital in Milan, including the relationship with this nurse Agnes von Kurowsky, all inspired his great novel A Farewell To Arms. When Hemingway returned home from Italy, he found his hometown dull from the war and romance of Agnes that he had just left. His Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 2. Ernest Hemingway Essay Ernest Hemingway – The Man and His Work On July 2, 1961, a writer whom many critics call the greatest writer of this century, a man who had a zest for adventure, a winner of the Nobel Prize and the Pulitzer Prize, a man who held esteem everywhere – on that July day, that man put a shotgun to his head and killed himself. That man was Ernest Hemingway. Though he chose to end his life, his heart and soul lives on through his many books and short stories. Hemingway's work is his voice on how he viewed society, specifically American society and the values it held. No other author of this century has had such a general and lasting influence on the generation which grew up between the world wars as Ernest Hemingway (Lania 5). The youth that...show more content... When his first test on the field of battle occurs, however, he sees the truth of war as a friend dies in his arms. At first the reader may think that the lieutenant was insensitive, but his true feelings show in these two lines: "I wiped my hand on my shirt and another floating light came very slowly down and I looked at my leg and was very afraid. Oh, God, I said, get me out of here." (Hemingway 55) From this point on the war begins to break him down. The lieutenant's increasing consumption of alcohol lets on that he is trying to avoid thinking about what has happened to him. The wine flows so freely that the porter at the hospital carries out the lieutenant's trash by the sack load. The drinking causes him to have jaundice as well as happy thoughts...the price he pays for the liquor. Hemingway shows American drinking habits in this book which coincide with Stein's idea. Frederick, like many men and women in the 1920's, sought to avoid his problems by turning to alcohol to make him feel better about himself and his situation. Along with a drinking problem the bedridden man decides to take his nurse as his lover. Lieutenant Frederick convinces himself he is in love with her and thinks nothing of it when he finds the nurse is with child. To avert his attention from the war he takes responsibility for Catherine and in the end becomes a deserter only to have his lover die in the end. Sex without marriage plays a major role in the book, as it was a characteristic of America's Get more content on HelpWriting.net
  • 3. Ernest Hemingway In A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway, the author used very short, choppy language that was not typical for the time period of the book. Despite the fact that he did not use long traditional sentences, Hemingway still managed to produce detailed passages with plenty of imagery to help the reader immerse themselves into the story. By illustrating settings, characterizing characters, and describing their feelings. Surprisingly, it was still possible to create detailed passages even with Ernest Hemingway's choppy and staccato writing style. Ernest Hemingway was one of the first great authors to use short language and still be descriptive. There was a great example of this in the text when he wrote, "The piece of timber swung in...show more content... One of the first secondary characters introduced was Catherine Barkley: "Miss Barkley was quite tall. She wore what seemed to me to be a nurse's uniform, was blond and had tawny skin and gray eyes." (Hemingway 18) Using his concise wording, Hemingway still managed to create a descriptive passage that made it clear to the reader exactly what Miss Barkley looked like. Even though Hemingway uses such plain language, it is not necessarily a bad thing. A professor at Penn State University wrote that Hemingway was one of the few authors that could write such detailed passages with such straightforward words when he said, "Nevertheless his powers of description are not diminished by his taking care to choose such simple language." (Markley) When done right, this writing style can be effective and sometimes better than more drawn out descriptive Get more content on HelpWriting.net

By fishing they are able to feed themselves and their families. They also sell fish in order to attain money to purchase any more materials and equipment that they may need in the future. "Hemingway's economical writing style often seems simple and almost childlike, but his method is calculated and used to complex effect." Hemingway provided detached descriptions of action using simple nouns and verbs to capture the scenes precisely in his writing. He avoided describing his characters' emotions and feelings by using this method of writing. Instead, Hemingway would use small phrases to describe his characters. His writing tried to express a feeling that would capture the readers' attention and help them visualize the scene as if they were really there. He believed that if the writer was actually in the situation that he is writing about, the story would get straight to the point and would eliminate all the little details. Hemingway's style of writing has had an enormous influence on American writers. Many American writers have followed the footsteps of Hemingway and have tried or are now using his method. Ernest Hemingway had a lot of important thoughts when writing each and every one of his novelettes. He used themes of helplessness and defeat in his original work, but he began to express concern about social problems in the late 1930's. Get more content on HelpWriting.net

One might even say that it brought out the best of him, as where other writers cowered, Hemingway stood tall and proud. That is the way he will always be remembered. II. Childhood As Hemingway is a writer of experience and was profoundly affected as a boy as well as a man, it is important to note the effects of his childhood on his writing. Born in Oak Park, Illinois on 21 July 1899, Ernest Miller Hemingway was one of six children. His father was a medical practitioner, but felt most at home in nature with a gun or fishing pole, which explains two of Hemingway's passions and his love of nature. At school he possessed many talents including football, athletics, boxing, being a member of the debate team, and a member of the school orchestra. His most important academic endeavor was his early commitment to writing, which included editing a weekly news–sheet and writing poetry and prose for the school's literary magazine. Hemingway's exposure to literature in high school was predominantly British. Only a handful of American writers enjoyed full representation in the unusually well stocked local library, whereas every standard British writer from Shakespeare onward was available in depth.

  • 6. Essay about Ernest Hemingway Ernest Hemingway Ernest Hemingway based his writing on real life experiences concerning death, relationships, and lies. He then mixed these ideas, along with a familiar setting, to create a masterpiece. Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899 in Oak Park Illinois. One of Hemmingway's first works was Indian Camp published in 1925. In many ways Indian Camp shows the relationship between Hemingway and his father. Hemingway then digs deeper into the past to create the love between Frederick Henry and Catherine Barkley, in A Farwell To Arms. Hemingway was later able to reflect his disgust ofhome life when he portrayed himself as the character Krebs in Soldiers Home, the character had problems with lies, women, and at home....show more content... Ed worked everyday to come home and have to clean the house, prepare the food, and tend to the children. He had promised Grace that if she would marry him, she would not have to do housework for as long as she lived. Ill and depressed, Ed Hemingway committed suicide in 1928. Hemingway later stated "I hated my mother as soon as I knew the score and love my father had for her, until he embarrassed me with the cowardice." (Myers 212). Hemingway used Indian Camp to express his feelings about how his father was a coward. He did this by having Nicks father refer to suicide as being pretty easy, which is compared to a coward's way of life. The characters and setting of Indian Camp are influenced by Hemingway's childhood. In much of the same way, Hemingway's second novel, A Farwell To Arms, has influences from his adult years spent in the war. A Farwell To Arms is a love story that occurs during World War I. Fredrick Henry, the main character is an ambulance driver who is wounded in the trenches. He is then sent to a hospital in Milan to recover. During his stay, he falls in love with a nurse named Catherine Barkley. The couple then flees to Switzerland to escape the war and have a child together. The novel then takes an evil twist at the end, Catherine dies while she is in labor, leaving Henry alone (Myers 22).

  • 7. Essay Ernest Hemingway Ernest Hemingway's tough, terse prose and short, declarative sentences did more to change the style of written English that any other writing in the twentieth century. Ernest Hemingway had many great accomplishments in his historical life but one event sticks out from the rest. The Old Man and the Sea is one of Hemingway's most enduring works. Told in Language of great simplicity and power, it is the story of an old Cuban fisherman, agonizing battle with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. Here Hemingway recasts, in strikingly contemporary style, the classic theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal triumph won from loss.

In May of 1918, Hemingway became an honorary second lieutenant in the Red Cross. He could not join the army due to a defective left eye (resentfully inherited from his mother). On his first day of service across seas, he and other ambulance drivers were assigned the horrific duty of picking up body parts from an exploded munitions factory. Death, mostly of women, on such a scale was most definitely another very shocking moment in Hemingway's young life. But he soon recovered from this experience and became known as the man who was always where the action is. He would often sneak cigarettes and chocolate to soldiers on the Italian front. It was on one of these occasions that he was severely wounded by an Austrian trench mortar. Even with over a hundred pieces of shrapnel and an Austrian machine gun bullet logged in his leg he managed to carry a wounded soldier a hundred yards to safety. He got the Italian Medal of Valor for his courageous action. He spent his recovery time at the Ospedale Croce Rossa Americana, in Milan. It is there that he met and fell for a thirty year–old nurse called Agnes Hannah. To Ernest's disappointment, Agnes was not willing to embark in a relationship.

  • 8. hemingway Essay Ernest Hemingway was an American writer. He was born in 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois. He committed suicide in 1961 in Ketchum, Idaho (Burges 17). Even today Hemingway is one of the most recognized authors in the world. Hemingway's experiences during World War I are directly shown in many of his works. His general outlook on life is reflected in the adventures of his characters. It is clear that Hemingway had a desire to be part of the war even though, due to bad vision he was unable to enlist in the army and fight in the war.

While at post one night Hemingway was first wounded by an Austrian mortar shell, then the same night he was further wounded by machine gun fire while he was carrying an Italian soldier to safety. Though badly wounded his injuries were not fatal; all his injures where contained to his legs (www.timelesshemingway.com). Hemingway spent five days in a field hospital before an excruciating train trip to Milan. In Milan things took an upward turn when surgery was successful. Hemingway was regarded as a hero and reported in newspapers and newsreels at home as the first American wounded in Italy (TimelessHemingway 2). It is debatable whether this was true but no matter, Hemingway was enjoying himself. World War One was the setting of many of Hemingway's stories. He used his personal experiences as their basis but enhanced them greatly. In 1929 Hemingway published A Farewell to Arms; the novel that many critics consider to be the best ever written about World War One (Burgess 56). It is based on Hemingway's personal experiences during the war. The main character, Lt. Frederic Henry, is wounded, just as Hemingway was. He is hospitalized and falls in love with a nurse. Hemingway also fell in love with his wartime nurse. But Hemingway took the characters further than his wartime experience. He created action from later experiences. He was very good at putting things together. He made up whatever he needed to suit his purposes (Hemingway 87). If the actual events worked, he stuck Get more content on HelpWriting.net
