My Sun rises for Hemingway

CindyC and AnthonyEkene found this witty

I have heard and read a lot about this "iconic" American journalist and novelist, most especially on how his style had a great influence on his time.I think it is time I read his books and get a personal opinion of him beyond the lore and legend.

For Whom the Bell Tolls

High in the pine forests of the Spanish Sierra, a guerilla band prepares to low up a vital bridge. Robert Jordan, a young American volunteer, has been sent to handle the dynamiting. There, in the mountains, he finds the dangers and the intense comradeship of war. And there he discovers Maria, a young woman who has escaped from Franco's rebels...

A Moveable Feast

"Published for the first time as Ernest Hemingway intended, his classic memoir of Paris in the 1920s." Published posthumously in 1964, "A Moveable Feast" remains one of Ernest Hemingway's most beloved works. Since Hemingway's personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. Now, this new special restored edition presents the original manuscript as the author intended it to be published. Featuring a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, Ernest's sole surviving son, and an introduction by the editor and grandson of the author, Sean Hemingway, this new edition also includes a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches revealing experiences that Hemingway had with his son, Jack, and his first wife, Hadley. Also included are irreverent portraits of other luminaries, such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ford Madox Ford, and insightful recollections of his own early experiments with his craft. Sure to excite critics and listeners alike, the restored edition of "A Moveable Feast" brilliantly evokes the exuberant mood of Paris after World War I and the unbridled creativity and unquenchable enthusiasm that Hemingway himself epitomized.

To Have and Have Not

To Have and Have Not is the dramatic story of Harry Morgan, an honest man who is forced into running contraband between Cuba and Key West as a means of keeping his crumbling family financially afloat. His adventures lead him into the world of the wealthy and dissipated yachtsmen who throng the region, and involve him in a strange and unlikely love affair. Harshly realistic, yet with one of the most subtle and moving relationships in the Hemingway oeuvre, To Have and Have Not is literary high adventure at its finest.

Across the River and into the Trees

Part of an original American collected edition of Hemingway's work, this novel is set in Venice in winter, soon after World War II. A US army colonel falls in love with a beautiful young Italian countess. The author won the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature for his book, "The Old Man and the Sea".

So, please wish me some "hemingwayic" luck.
