In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged American colonel stationed in Italy at the close of the Second World War, and his love for a young Italian countess. A poignant, bittersweet homage to love that overpowers reason, to the resilience of the human spirit, and to the worldweary beauty and majesty of Venice, Across the River and into the Trees stands as Hemingway's statement of defiance in response to the great dehumanizing atrocities of the Second World War. Hemingway's last full-length novel published in his lifetime, it moved John O'Hara in The New York Times Book Review to call him “the most important author since Shakespeare.”

Ernest Hemingway’s lifelong zeal for hunting is reflected in his masterful works of fiction, from his famous account of an African safari in “The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber” to passages about duck hunting in Across the River and into the Trees. For Hemingway, hunting was more than just a passion; it was a means through which to explore our humanity and man’s relationship to nature. Courage, awe, respect, precision, patience—these were the virtues that Hemingway honored in the hunter, and his ability to translate these qualities into prose has produced some of the strongest accounts of hunting of all time. Hemingway on Hunting offers the full range of Hemingway’s writing about the hunting life. With selections from his best-loved novels and stories, along with journalistic pieces from such magazines as Esquire and Vogue, this spectacular collection is a must-have for anyone who has ever tasted the thrill of the hunt—in person or on the page.

Ernest Hemingway is a giant among 20th-century American authors. Even during his own time, he had a cult following. His many books, The Old Man and the Sea, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Snows of Kilimanjaro remain well-loved classics to this day. In 1954 Hemmingway won the Nobel Prize for literature in recognition of his talent. “Papa” Hemingway possessed a bright personality and traveled incessantly. He handwrote his manuscripts in pencil and on a “good” day he could write seven pencils down to their nubs while standing in one place; moving only to shift his body weight from one foot to the other. A tragic figure, he suffered from numerous maladies and injuries throughout his life: anthrax, malaria, amoebic dysentery, pneumonia, skin cancer, hepatitis, and diabetes amongst them. Additionally, he experienced ruptured internal organs (kidneys, spleen, and liver), a cracked vertebra, and a fractured skull. His passions were three: literature, alcohol, and fishing. Among his favorite books, Hemingway listed Flaber’s Madam Bovary, Stendhal’s The Red and the Black, Joyce’s Dubliners, Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, and Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov as must-reads for all.

Ernest Hemingway is most often associated with Spain and Cuba, but Italy was equally important in his life and work. Hemingway in Italy, the first full-length book exploring Hemmingway’s penchant for Italy, offers a lively account of the many visits Hemingway made throughout his life to Italian locales, including Sicily, Genoa, Rapallo, Cortina, and Venice. In evocative prose, complemented by a rich selection of historical images, Richard Owen takes us on a tour through Hemingway’s Italy. He describes how Hemingway first visited the country of the Latins during World War I, an experience that set the scene for A Farewell to Arms. Then after World War II, it was in Italy that he found inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees. Again and again, the Italian landscape—from the Venetian lagoon to the Dolomites and beyond—deeply affected one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century. Hemingway in Italy demonstrates that Italy stands alongside Spain as a key influence on Hemingway’s work—and why the Italians themselves hold Hemingway and his writing close to their hearts.

In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway and his fourth wife traveled for the first time to Venice, which Hemingway called “absolutely god-damned wonderful.” A year shy of his fiftieth birthday, Hemingway hadn’t published a novel in nearly a decade when he met and fell in love with Adriana Ivancich, a striking Venetian girl just out of finishing school. Here Andrea di Robilant re-creates with sparkling clarity this surprising, years-long relationship, during which Adriana inspired a man thirty years her senior to complete his great final work. Hemingway used Adriana as the model for Renata in Across the River and into the Trees, and continued to visit Venice to see her; when the Ivanciches traveled to Cuba, Adriana was there as he wrote The Old Man and the Sea. The illuminating story of writer and muse—which also examines the cost to a young woman of her association with a larger-than-life literary celebrity—Autumn in Venice is an intimate look at Hemingway’s final years.

Ernest Hemingway witnessed many of the seminal conflicts of the twentieth century—from his post as a Red Cross ambulance driver during World War I to his nearly twenty-five years as a war correspondent for The Toronto Star—and he recorded them with matchless power. This landmark volume brings together Hemingway’s most important and timeless writings about the nature of human combat. Passages from his beloved World War I novel, A Farewell to Arms, and For Whom the Bell Tolls, about the Spanish Civil War, offer an unparalleled portrayal of the physical and psychological impact of war and its aftermath. Selections from Across the River and into the Trees vividly evoke an emotionally scarred career soldier in the twilight of life as he reflects on the nature of war. Classic short stories, such as “In Another Country” and “The Butterfly and the Tank,” stand alongside excerpts from Hemingway’s first book of short stories, In Our Time, and his only full-length play, The Fifth Column. With captivating selections from Hemingway’s journalism—from his coverage of the Greco-Turkish War of 1919–22 to a legendary early interview with Mussolini to his jolting eyewitness account of the Allied invasion of Normandy on June 6, 1944—Hemingway on War collects the author’s most penetrating chronicles of perseverance and defeat, courage and fear, and love and loss in the midst of modern warfare.

In the spring of 1876, the U.S. Army was ordered to round up Sioux Indians who had left their reservation in Dakota Territory to join other Northern Plains Indians in southern Montana. By mid-June, General George A. Custer and his 7th Cavalry Regiment had located a fresh Indian trail, and the Seventh went into fast pursuit. Late on a hot, Sunday afternoon, Custer led five companies of the Regiment to their doom at the hands of the Indians he had so aggressively chased down. They died on high ground overlooking the Little Big Horn River and a large Indian encampment on its far floodplain. Custer supporters, in shock and disbelief, stung by the unacceptable possibility that Custer may have blundered, were convinced that the Civil War boy general was abandoned to his fate by his subordinate commanders who despised him. Allegations soon flew that Captain Frederick W. Benteen tarried on the trail behind, disobeying a written order to come to Custer quickly. The question has remained: did Benteen tarry on the trail? In this book, the author takes an analytical look at the existing evidence and comes to a remarkable conclusion.

In 1918 , a one-month stint with the American Red Cross ambulance corps at the Italian front marked the beginning of Ernest Hemingway’s fascination with Italy—a place second only to Upper Michigan in stimulating his lifelong passion for geography and local expertise. Hemingway’s Italy offers a thorough reassessment of Italy’s importance in the author’s life and work during World War I and the 1920s, when he emerged as a promising young writer, and during his maturity in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This collection of eighteen essays presents a broad view of Hemingway’s personal and literary response to Italy. The contributors, some of the most distinguished Hemingway scholars, incorporate new biographical and historical information as well as critical approaches ranging from formalist and structuralist theory to cultural and interdisciplinary explorations. Included are discussions of Italy’s psychological functioning in Hemingway’s life, the author’s correspondence with his father during the writing of A Farewell to Arms, his stylistic experimentation and characterization in that novel, his juxtaposition of the themes of love and war, and his take on Fascism in both his fiction and journalistic work. In addition, the essayists explore relevant contexts of period and place—such as the rise of Fascism, ethnic attitudes, and the cultural currents between Italy and the United States. A landmark study, Hemingway’s Italy brings long-overdue attention to this great writer’s international role as cultural ambassador. Contributors : Rena Sanderson, Nancy R. Comley, Kim Moreland, Steven Florczyk, Kirk Curnutt, Lawrence H. Martin, John Robert Bittner, Jeffrey A. Schwarz, J. Gerald Kennedy, H. R.

"The literature of Ernest Hemingway is rich with military lessons derived from his lifetime of proximity to war and his understanding of soldiers and leaders at all levels as presented through his characters. Hemingway wrote two significant military works that treat deeply the psyche and behavior of soldiers in war: For Whom the Bell Tolls presented a guerilla band led by an American professor named Robert Jordan, and exposed the different types of junior and senior leaser, as well as an ideal soldier in Anselmo, the old, untrained partisan. Across the River and Into the Trees was equally rich in military insights, at a much higher level of command, through the bitter musings of Colonel Cantwell. Hemingway's fiction represented and reproduced the detailed awareness he had of soldiers and leaders, good and bad. He was born with the natural instinct to lead, and through his proximity to men performing humanity's most vaunted of tests, he produced a body of fiction that can serve collectively as a manual for understanding soldiers, terrain, and military leadership. Hemingway recognized the combat soldier as the man onto whom the most pressure was placed, and he wrote through his characters and opinion of how the ideal combat soldier should behave, with "grace under pressure."--Abstract.

Ernest Hemingway's early adulthood (1917-1929) was marked by his work as a journalist, wartime service, marriage, conflicts with parents, expatriation, artistic struggle, and spectacular success. In War + Ink, veteran and emerging Hemingway scholars, alongside experts in related fields, present pathbreaking research that provides important insights into this period of Hemingway's life. Comprised of sixteen elegantly written essays, War + Ink revisits Hemingway's formative experiences as a cub reporter in Kansas City. It establishes a fresh set of contexts for his Italian adventure in 1918 and his novels and short stories of the 1920s, offers some provocative reflections on his fiction and the issue of truth-telling in war literature, and reexamines his later career in terms of themes, issues, or places tied to his early life. The essays vary in methodology, theoretical assumptions, and scope; what they share is an eagerness to question--and to look beyond--truisms that have long prevailed in Hemingway scholarship. Highlights include historian Jennifer Keene's persuasive analysis of Hemingway as a "typical doughboy," Ellen Andrew Knodt's unearthing of "Hemingwayesque" language spread throughout the correspondence penned by his World War I contemporaries, Susan Beegel's account of the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic and its previously unrecognized impact on the young Hemingway, Jennifer Haytock's adroit analysis of "destructive spectatorship" in The Sun Also Rises, Mark Cirino's groundbreaking discussion of the instantaneous "life review" experienced by Hemingway's dying characters (an intrusion of the speculative and the fantastic into fiction better known for its hard surfaces and harsh truths), and Matthew Nickel's detailed interpretation of the significance of Kansas City in Across the River and Into the Trees. A trio of scholars--Celia Kingsbury, William Blazek, and Daryl Palmer--focus on "Soldier's Home," offering three very different readings of this quintessential narrative of an American soldier's homecoming. Finally, Dan Clayton and Thomas G. Bowie reexamine Hemingway's war stories in light of those told by today's veterans.

Hemingway was first published in 1970. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. In a close critical analysis of five of Ernest Hemingway's novels and a number of his most important short stories, Professor Benson provides a fascinating new view of his work. The novels discussed are The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Across the River and into the Trees, and the Old Man and the Sea. Hemingway's art of self-defense, which Professor Benson refers to in his subtitle, was, as he demonstrates in his perceptive criticism, the writer's use of style and technique to attack the sentimentalities which were Hemingway's own weakness. Emotion was central to the task which Hemingway defined for himself, Professor Benson explains, and a critical appraisal of his work must, therefore, focus particularly on the ways in which he dealt with and expressed emotion.
