About Author

  1. Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American author and journalist His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid 1920s and the mid 1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 He published seven novels, six short story collections and two non fiction works Three novels, four collections of short stories and three non fiction works were published posthumously Many of these are considered classics of American literature.Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois After high school he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home His wartime experiences formed the basis for his novel A Farewell to Arms In 1922, he married Hadley Richardson, the first of his four wives The couple moved to Paris, where he worked as a foreign correspondent, and fell under the influence of the modernist writers and artists of the 1920s Lost Generation expatriate community The Sun Also Rises, Hemingway s first novel, was published in 1926.After his 1927 divorce from Hadley Richardson, Hemingway married Pauline Pfeiffer They divorced after he returned from Spanish Civil War where he had acted as a journalist, and after which he wrote For Whom the Bell Tolls Martha Gellhorn became his third wife in 1940 They separated when he met Mary Welsh in London during World War II during which he was present at the Normandy Landings and liberation of Paris.Shortly after the publication of The Old Man and the Sea in 1952, Hemingway went on safari to Africa, where he was almost killed in two plane crashes that left him in pain or ill health for much of the rest of his life Hemingway had permanent residences in Key West, Florida, and Cuba during the 1930s and 1940s, but in 1959 he moved from Cuba to Ketchum, Idaho, where he committed suicide in the summer of 1961.

  1. Ok, before I commit the sacrilege of dismissing this classic, permit me to establish my Hemingway bona fides I have read and loved just about everything else he wrote, and have taught Sun Also Rises, Farewell to Arms, and many short stories, and had a blast doing it I ve read Carlos Baker s classic bio, and numerous critical articles on H I ve made the pilgrimage to Key West and taken pictures of his study and the hordes of 6 toed cats I dig Papa, ok But I can not stand this book I should say up [...]

  4. At some point in high school, I decided that I hated Ernest Hemingway Was it the short story we read in English class Was it the furniture collection named after him at Gabbert s Something made me decide that Hemingway was a prick, and after that I dismissed him entirely.This book was beautiful I don t even like books about war Case in point I scanned half of War and Peace I think which half is obvious But this book took five hundred pages to blow up a single bridge There were tanks to count, gr [...]


  5. Not my favourite Hemingway, a little bit too slow But the topic of the Spanish Civil War makes it a good read, and the John Donne poem that gave the novel its title should be yelled, shouted, sung, recited, hummed and whispered by heart over and over again, especially in these times of outlandishly islandish people destroying the world again No man is an island entire of itself every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as w [...]



  6. Just when I d decided that Hemingway only ever wrote books about people getting drunk in cafes and thinking about how miserable they are, he surprises me and comes out with something like this Naturally, the characters still get drunk and think about how miserable they are, but they do it while being guerrilla fighters in the Spanish Civil War, which makes it awesome In The Things They Carried, Tim O Brien writes that, If at the end of a war story you feel uplifted, or if you feel that some smal [...]


  7. Oh dear, I fear this review will be lambasted and that people will note that this is the second time I have dismissed a classic this week In my defence, I did enjoy Orwell s Animal Farm.I really wanted to like this and persevered to past the half way point But when I got to the stage where I was dreading picking up the book as I was finding it so monotonous, I decided enough was enough it was going back to the library from whence it came The lengthy novel tells the story of Robert Jordan, a youn [...]


  8. I have a hard time with Mr Hemingway, I guess For Whom the Bell Tolls didn t involve as much rampant drinking as many of his other books, but I blame that on the setting a cave in the mountains where only a few gallons of wine were available and a flask of absinthe, the flavor of which is described over the course of about thirty pages However, his standard sexism toward the female characters still applied Here are a few things I didn t like about the book Did he really have to write rope soled [...]


  9. I can t understand how anyone would dislike this book I loved The Windup Bird Chronicle, but I understand how one wouldn t enjoy it For Whom the Bell Tolls, however, was one of those classics that was so perfect, so profoundly moving and yet just enjoyable to read, that I can t comprehend the negative review Like Anna Karenina, Crime and Punishment, or Native Son, its one of those cornerstones of literature that utterly justified its spot in the cannon The characters were perfectly wrought, and [...]


  10. 587 For Whom The Bell Tolls, Ernest HemingwayFor Whom the Bell Tolls is a novel by Ernest Hemingway published in 1940 It tells the story of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to a republican guerrilla unit during the Spanish Civil War As a dynamiter, he is assigned to blow up a bridge during an attack on the city of Segovia The novel is regarded as one of Hemingway s best works, along with The Sun Also Rises, The Old Man and the Sea, and A Farewell to Arms 197 [...]


  11. Reviewed in May 2012The last Hemingway I read was A Moveable Feast and I enjoyed it a lot It helped that I was staying in Paris when I read it so there was that extra special feeling we get when we walk the very streets an author describes in his stories I think it suited Hemingway to write stories, and perhaps short novels I also remember enjoying The Old Man and the Sea and images from that book stayed with me for years In spite of those good experiences, I couldn t relate to this book I had j [...]


  12. Lo bueno que me dej este libro fue la curiosidad que me dio por leer m s acerca de la guerra civil espa ola Por otro lado, Hemingway demuestra lo que sabe escribir buenas novelas.Lo que me gusta, es que siendo s lo cinco d as de guerra, logra hacer un libro completo, lleno de recuerdos e historias emocionantes Me toca un poco el hecho de saber que podr an ser la ltimas horas de mi vida, me pongo en ese lugar y como que reflexiono Me da vueltas en la cabeza c mo ser a ser experto en explosivos y [...]


  13. The writer was a bearded bulk of a man His carousing had earned him a reputation He drank hard and worked harder, penning stories filled with drinkers, bullfighters, soldiers and simple words.He sometimes wrote in short sentences Sometimes quite short Sometimes very Sometimes His style was distinctive It was often parodied Sometimes in book reviews.He shot elephants for sport He murdered lions He fished Marlins He watched Andalusian bulls die slow deaths while Spaniards danced around them This m [...]


  14. Ernest Hemingway, with the novel For Whom The Bell Tolls makes an argument in favor of freedom He wrote the novel in 1939 and kept alive the memories of his experiences in the Spanish Civil War.The main character, and central point of the whole action, is an American volunteer named Robert Jordan He s been entrusted to blow up a bridge to stop the advance of the national reinforcement troops against a republican attack.His guide, Anselmo, establishes the contact between him and a group of people [...]


  15. The Spanish Civil War is a very interesting historical event, but this story is full of bad dialogue, glorifies the brave American, and largely ignores the plight of the Spaniards themselves not to mention that the love interest is as one dimensional as a blowup sex doll, which is pretty much all that her character serves as in this book I recommend Orwell s Homage to Catalonia if you want to know what the Spanish Civil War was like unlike Hemingway who was just a reporter in Spain, Orwell was r [...]



  16. You know you ve devoured a good book when after going over the last line you feel somewhat ethereal an unworldly feeling of satisfaction Well, that is what I felt with this book This is my first of Hemingway and my second war novel first was Vonnegut s Slaughterhouse Five When I picked it up from my book rack, I told myself Hmmm Hemingway This must be a difficult book , but I was proven wrong Hemingway s stylistic choice of words, the density and intelligent distribution of his sentences, his ju [...]


  17. There s an old saying, ascribed to Dostoevsky and a dozen other famous authors, I m sure , that says there are only two types of stories 1 a man goes on a journey and 2 a stranger rides into town It s a cute, pithy little saying, and broadly true, especially if you stretch your definition of journey Of course, it misses the third great type of story the loss of an Eden like paradise, which is the basis of every romantic comedy in existence boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back and o [...]


  18. A little better than Hemingway s other books, but that does not say much For Whom the Bell Tolls has all the Hemingway staples an obsession with war and violence, an over idealization of romantic love, and lackluster writing But he does improve in some areas from his past books He includes Pilar, a complex and empowered woman whose strength sets her apart from Hemingway s meek, modest female characters Hemingway also makes Robert Jordan, our protagonist, a little thoughtful, as he questions th [...]


  19. I won t deny my youthful bloody lust to travel afar and get the girl and die in valor fighting the good fight before those words were emptied by experience and observation and to read the messages in bottles all polished sea glass smooth by now my teenage self is tossing into a flood tide from far, far away in some distant dimension where he hardly resembles myself, and I am ashamed of him this book is written well I perfectly remember my parent s back porch and sun struck green afternoons with [...]

  21. i might attempt to pick this up again some day but at the moment it s marked as dnf it was just so dull and lacklustre i couldn t make it past the first 100 pages


  22. Ok, so Ben Harrison inspired me to check out some Hemingway I hadn t ready any of Hemingway s work in close to twenty years I remember starting A Movable Feast in college, reading five pages, and wondering what they hell was wrong with the author I couldn t get past what I perceived as a wooden, hacked off writing style I felt kind of guilty, though, because I grew up a couple miles away from Oak Park, Illinois, which styles itself as an integral part of Hemingway s youth, and some people I resp [...]



  23. While I was traveling in Cuba and doing research for my book, one of the many places I visited was Hemingway s home In Hemingway s home, where everything still sits as he left it, I learned of Hemingway s surprising influence upon Fidel Castro.In Hemingway s library, there was a framed 8 x 10 black and white picture of a man At first, I had no idea who this person was I later learned that this gentleman was Charles Sweeney, a close friend of Hemingway Sweeney was a career military man and Heming [...]



  24. Two young lovers find each other in the midst of war and fight an inner battle between duty and happiness The bell tolls for us all at some point, but do we hear it in time to awake to an authentic life before it is silent


  25. In Spain of the post Franco years, and especially since the opening of the archives of the old Soviet Union, the debate about the role of the Communists in the Second Republic both before and during Franco s rebellion has increased with renewed intensity It has long been clear that the war was not a simple black and white conflict between a freely elected liberal democratic State the Republic , on one side, and an insurgent authoritarian Fascism, on the other.The historian Stanley Payne has argu [...]


  26. I read For Whom the Bell Tolls many years ago, I still remember Ernest Hemingway s splendid story of an young American, Robert Jordan, that fights along with the guerrilla in the Spanish Civil War, and his love for Maria Simply beautiful This novel kept me company for hours, it totally consumed me And how I loved it Worth revisiting.5 stars Highly recommended.
