"Ernest Hemingway was one of the best-known American writers. He was born in 1899 in Illinois, he lived in the USA, in Paris and Cuba. He made a member of hunting trips to Africa and he traveled all his life. He was a newspaper reporter and that is why he was deeply interested in public events. He used to take part in many public events. In World War I he served in an ambulance group, during the Spanish Civil War he stayed in Spain and reported on it. He was keen on hunting trips so he has a great respect for courage. His brave characters do not always survive but they live their lives to the fullest.
Hemingway belonged to a group of American intellectuals who called themselves “the lost generation”. They felt that having lived through one disaster – the war – they could expect another, still worse, catastrophe.
He was verbally gifted and he developed a striking style, which was simple bet very emotional. His style of writing contributed to the international popularity of his fiction. His interest in hunting, fishing and bull-fighting is reflected in his heroes. First Hemingway won popularity with “Fiesta” which was published in American under the title “The Sun Also Rises”. Hemingway’s best books are “A Farewell to Arms”, “For Whom the Bell Tolls” (these are novels) and short story “The Old Man and the Sea”. In „A Farewell to Arms“ Hemingway shows the charming and moving love of an American lieutenant in the Italian Ambulance Service and an English nurse. “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is a psychological picture of the Spanish Civil War. The main character of this novel is Robert Jordan. He is a sapable American who come to the guerilla group to help them destroy a strategically important bridge. Here he meets a girl, Mary, and falls in love with her. Robertfinds he is nothing alone and death means nothing. The fourth day Robert succeeds in blowing the bridge up but he is badly hurt and cannot go on with the group. He knows he is going to die. In the end he realizes what a beautiful place the world really is and how much it is worth fighting for."
