Ernest Hemingway


Ernest Hemingway was a famous contemporary American writer. He was known for his journalism, novels, and short stories. Most of his work was written between the mid 1920's-1950's. In 1954 he won the Nobel Prize in Literature. His writing consisted of simple and natural language, that was easy to understand, but was actually very detailed and had a deeper meaning than it may have seemed on the surface. 

A few of his most famous works are: The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and The Old Man and the Sea -- which won a Pulitzer Prize in 1953. 

He was born in July of 1899 in Oak Park, Illinois. He started off his career as a writer for a local newspaper before enlisting as an ambulance driver in World War 1. After getting injured from an Austrian mortar fire, he came back home and began to write using inspiration from his experiences during the war. He then became a journalist, covering Normandy landings and the liberations of Paris, during World War 2. 

Hemingway's favorite pen to use was a Montegrappa! When he was in the war, he was stationed by the original factory in Bassano del Grappa at Villa Ca Erizzo in Italy. Montegrappa actually has a a collection called "Mightier than the Sword", which was named after Hemingway to celebrate his relationship with them.
