Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899-1961)

The introduction

   Ernest Miller Hemingway was one of America`s foremost writers, and a
classic of American and world literature of the 20th century. He
influenced the American short story, and his novels A Farewell to
Arms, To Have and Have Not, For Whom the Bells Tolls, The Old Man
and the Sea are world known. He took part in the First World War, Civil
War  in Spain and  in the Second World War, and fought actively against
fascism and war.

Hemingway was a man of great talent. An American critic, Carlos Baker,
in his book Ernest Hemingway A Life Story writes that Hemingway was a
perpetual student, a profound reader, a brilliant naturalist and a keen
observer  of life around him. Hemingway won the hearts of his readers
with his stories and novels and attracted people by his personal
qualities ? his honesty and courage above all. He was much interested in
fishing, hunting, boxing and the national Spanish sport corrida.


Ernest Miller Hemingway was born at eight o'clock in the morning on July
21, 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois. In the nearly sixty two years of his
life that followed he forged a literary reputation unsurpassed in the
twentieth century. In doing so, he also created a mythological hero in
himself that captivated (and at times confounded) not only serious
literary critics but the average man as well. In a word, he was a star.

Born in the family home at 439 North Oak Park Avenue (now 339 N. Oak
Park Avenue), a house built by his widowed grandfather Ernest Hall,
Hemingway was the second of Dr. Clarence and Grace Hall Hemingway`s six
children; he had four sisters and one brother. He was named after his
maternal grandfather Ernest Hall and his great uncle Miller Hall.

Oak Park was a mainly Protestant, upper middle-class suburb of Chicago
that Hemingway would later refer to as a town of "wide lawns and narrow
minds." Only ten miles from the big city, Oak Park was really much
farther away philosophically. It was basically a conservative town that
tried to isolate itself from Chicago's liberal seediness. Hemingway was
raised with the conservative Midwestern values of strong religion, hard
work, physical fitness and self determination; if one adhered to these
parameters, he was taught, he would be ensured of success in whatever
field he chose.

. He read all the time ? and books far beyond his years

At school Ernest was recognized as an exceptionally good football player
