A Critical Study on Life and Works of Ernest Hemingway with the Old Man and the Sea

Daniel Reed (Editor)
Synopsis Hemingway was the American novelist and short-story writer, whose style is characterized by crispness, laconic dialogue, and emotional understatement. His writings and personal life exerted a profound influence on American writers of his time. Many of his works are regarded as classics of American Literature, and some have been made into motion pictures. Hemingway’s economical writing style often seems simple and almost childlike, but his method is calculated and used to complex effect. In his writing Hemingway provided detached descriptions of action, using simple nouns and verbs to capture scenes precisely. By doing so he avoided describing his characters’ emotions and thoughts directly. He believed that a writer would treat a subject honestly only if the writer has participated in or observed the subject closely. Without such knowledge the writer’s work would be flawed because the reader would sense the author’s lack of expertise. In 1954, Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. The last work published in his lifetime was Collected Poems (1960). His death is regarded as a suicide. Hemingway’s posthumously published books include A Moveable Feast (1964), an account of his early years in Paris; Byline: Ernest Hemingway (1967), selected newspaper articles and dispatches; Ernest Hemingway, Cub Reporters: Kansas in the Stream (1970, a sea novel; and the unfinished The Garden of Eden (1986). Some Garden of Eden (1986). Some 3000 of his manuscript pages remain unpublished.
