Ernest Hemingway in Spain around 1950.
Born in 1899, Hemmingway was a contemporary of Marc Chagall and
Isaac Bashevis Singer. His writing, characterized by terse minimalism
and understatement, in the rain, had significant influence on
the development of twentieth century fiction.
Hemingway’s leading men are stoic males who manifest
grace under pressure. Many of his works are considered
classics in the canon of American literature.
Hemingway was part of the 1920s community of Americans in Paris,
known as “The Lost Generation,” a name coined and popularized
by Gertrude Stein. Hemingway received the Nobel Prize in Literature
in 1954, seven years before his death by suicide in 1961.
Below, Ernest Hemingway discourses with an accidental
time-traveler during the 1920s in the movie, Midnight in Paris.
