About the Author

Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of andlt;Iandgt;The Sun Also Risesandlt;/Iandgt; and andlt;Iandgt;A Farewell to Armsandlt;/Iandgt; immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. As part of the expatriate community in 1920s Paris, the former journalist and World War I ambulance driver began a career that led to international fame. Hemingway was an aficionado of bullfighting and big-game hunting, and his main protagonists were always men and women of courage and conviction who suffered unseen scars, both physical and emotional. He covered the Spanish Civil War, portraying it in the novel andlt;Iandgt;For Whom the Bell Tollsandlt;/Iandgt;, and he also covered World War II. His classic novella andlt;Iandgt;The Old Man and the Sea andlt;/Iandgt;won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. He died in 1961.
