Ernest Hemingway was a man with his own sense of style and even in the beginning showed a fierce determination. This reflected in his books and journalistic expressions. Ernest Hemingway was born (July 21, 1899-July2, 1961) to Dr. Clarence Hemingway and his mother Grace Hemingway, the second oldest of six children in Oak Park, Illinois. Hemingway’s macho lifestyle was no act; he developed a love for the outdoors from his physician father, who was described as a quiet man but very much into fishing and hunting. Sadly, his father committed suicide. Like many, the events in his life would affect his writing.

He lived an active macho lifestyle, researching his novels with focus and vigor. This man was a star of movies as well as a renowned author. Many of his novels were turned into movies. His way of doing thing left a lasting emblem on the way other authors write and research information. Ernest Hemingway was adventurous and held back nothing when pursuing an endeavor. This is very clear in “The Sun Also Rises” as he creates the character Pedro Romero, the man of honor in a world of lust loving individuals. His book talks of the ill way the world lives. Naturally, his possible character references were not happy but his reach at honest depictions, lives on.

His novels for “Whom the Bell Tolls” is only one of many. His face is familiar to many because of his brilliant movie career and his ability to bring a reader or a viewer of screen into the story as if he or she were a part of it; not simply a spectator. Winning a Pulitzer Prize for his infamous book “The Old Man and the Sea” (1953) Hemingway’s list of books turned into movies goes on: “The Snows of Kilimanjaro”, “A Farewell to Arms” and the Sun Also Rises.” These and many more have placed the man and his writings into the hearts of millions. He was awarded the coveted Nobel Prize for Literature (1954). Writing for this man was not merely putting pen to paper, but a passion. He did his best to give each character a presence, making them unforgettable. He was one of the worlds, gifted writers.

After finishing high school in 1916, Hemingway took a job as a writer at the “Kansas City Star”. Living with his father’s love for history this was a natural step for this writing genius. He adhered to the writing style of the paper and began his career that would last decades. Leaving to aid the war effort as an ambulance driver the author suffered injury from mortar fire on the Italian front. A great deal of time was spent in hospitals for surgeries after the injury but as always, he plowed on with his work. Even after the death of his father, he so dearly loved; Hemingway did not stop the business of writing, but threw himself into the job with more enthusiasm.

Now, back in the United States working for the “Toronto Star” he restarted his writing. This return, however, held a bonus, his future wife, “Hadley Richardson.” Married in 1921, Hemingway was placed on assignment in Paris by the “Toronto Star” and by way of Gertrude Stein, was introduced to a group whose prose would affect the world for years to come. A few of these fellow writers were Thornton Wilder, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ezra Pound. Living in Europe his influences were not limited to these acquaintances but also included, “Ivan Turgenev”, “Leo Tolstoy” and “Pablo Picasso.”

Hemingway had a vibrant personality and created interest anywhere he went. His voice was magnanimous and resonated throughout his life. He was a memorable person in a large way. Once seeing him, he was unforgettable. This man lived his adventures as closely as he could. Living in Cuba, writing the “Old man and the Sea” and fighting at D’ Day writing “For Whom the Bell Tolls.” His works were set in the real world but he brought a deeper meaning to every word. In the “Old Man and the Sea” and its character, Hemingway further demonstrates his ideas and becomes a resounding success. Some felt he had reached a pinnacle at this point in his career but this success made the critics rethink their assumptions. He, once again reached inside himself to find yet another passionate work of the heart.

Others benefited from his gift of writing, Spencer Tracy won a best actor ward and “Dmitri Toimkin” won best musical score for his book turned movie, “The Old Man and the Sea.” His talent for the dramatic is unchallenged. The movie “Island in the Stream,” played by “George C. Scott” is a show of the passion in Hemingway’s writings. A list of adverse health problems and disappointments brought mental and physical hardship to this talented writer. In later years, he suffered from diabetes and liver problems. His memory lapsed and writing became difficult. In 1961, like his father, Ernest Hemingway took his life. After his death, more writings were found. Published by family members; adding to the collection of passionate writings, with editing done by family.

He was openly upset with his mother who was described as domineering. However, perhaps, even this became beneficial to his determination to accomplish things, in his own way. Ernest Hemingway’s novels were inspired by events he actually lived. One of his great loves, “Agnes Von Kurowsky” leaves him for another. He is inspired to write, “A farewell to Arms. It would seem his fails were indirectly gifts. Ernest Hemingway was one of a kind. He cut his own path, writing the way he thought it should be done. He certainly met critics that did not agree but he did not deviate. Perhaps this is why his writing is still entertaining the generations.

Writing, for Hemingway was a solitary experience. His writing reached deep inside himself, bringing out true expression. He had friends who recognized his genius and his writing was nurtured by his experiences. This writer churned out novel after novel, inspiring movies and plays. His writings are still in print and movies are available for all to see. He spoke of the real world and did not mind placing his brand upon it. For this, people were not always pleased but Ernest Hemingway’s style was to do it the way, “Ernest Hemingway pleased.”
