There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things, and because it takes a man's life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave. In the winter of 1933, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Pauline set out on a two-month safari in the big-game country of East Africa, camping out on the great Serengeti Plain at the foot of magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. “I had quite a trip,” the author told his friend Philip Percival, with characteristic understatement. Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's account of that expedition, of what it taught him about Africa and himself. Richly evocative of the region's natural beauty, tremendously alive to its character, culture, and customs, and pregnant with a hard-won wisdom gained from the extraordinary situations it describes, it is widely held to be one of the twentieth century's classic travelogues.

ABOUT THE BOOK The Green Hills of Africa was written by renowned writer Ernest Hemingway between November 1933 and March 1934 while he was on safari in Africa. The story retells Hemingways experiences while hunting in the East Africa Tanzania region with his wife. The work is non-fiction and describes the difficulty and enjoyment to be had from big game hunting against the exotic and strange backdrop of the African countryside. The book is divided into four parts: Pursuit and Conversation, Pursuit Remembered, Pursuit and Failure, and, Pursuit as Happiness, each documenting a specific experience of the hunt. MEET THE AUTHOR Ashley Somogyi is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. Happy reading! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The Green Hills of Africa is an autobiographical story documenting Hemingways emotions, sites, and experiences as he trekked through the wilds of southeastern Africa in search of rare and challenging game. The opening scene describes Hemingways quiet frustration and nonchalant attitude when a truck drives by and frightens off the kudu he is hunting. This singular scene shows the anticipation, failure, and dry emotions that are expressed throughout the book. Defeated, Hemingway returns to camp and on the way meets Kandisky, who frightened the kudu. Kadinsky joins Hemingways party and it seems that the two will get on quite well, sharing similar tastes in literature and opinion, but the more questions Kandisky asks, the more he wears on Hemingways nerves.

The hunter figure appears in a variety of American literary texts and cultural contexts from colonial times to the present. Initially, he reflects rebellion against European aristocracy and then the growing independent spirit of the new nation. His power derives from his skill to survive and thrive in the vast American landscape. However, the hunter is a liminal figure who traverses opposing worlds of wilderness and civilization. He belongs partly in each world, making him at once privileged and marginal. As the nation grows the hunter figure suggests shifts in the locus of power. Specifically, over time he represents the power to create the new nation, to develop it, to expand its power across the continent and the globe, to transcend degenerate forces that threaten it, and ultimately the power for any American, male or female, to reinvent and define his or her identity.

In this original comparative study of Kurt Vonnegut and Ernest Hemingway, Lawrence R. Broer maps the striking intersections of biography and artistry in works by both writers, and he compares the ways in which they blend life and art. Broer views Hemingway as the �secret sharer� of Vonnegut�s literary imagination and argues that the two writers�while traditionally considered as adversaries because of Vonnegut�s rejection of Hemingway�s emblematic hypermasculinism�inevitably address similar deterministic wounds in their fiction: childhood traumas, family insanity, deforming wartime experiences, and depression. Rooting his discussion in these psychological commonalities between Vonnegut and Hemingway, Broer traces their personal and artistic paths by pairing sets of works and protagonists in ways that show the two writers not only addressing similar concerns, but developing a response that in the end establishes an underlying kinship when it comes to the fate of the American hero of the twentieth century. Broer sees Vonnegut and Hemingway as fundamentally at war�with themselves, with one another�s artistic visions, and with the idea of war itself. Against this onslaught, he asserts, they wrote as a mode of therapy and achieved literary greatness through combative opposition to the shadows that loomed so large around them.

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.
