Description

One of Hemingway's most enduring writings is The Old Man and the Sea. It's the storey of a down-on-his-luck old Cuban fisherman and his ultimate experience, a relentless, excruciating battle with a gigantic marlin far out in the Gulf Stream, told in language of remarkable simplicity and power. Hemingway recasts the old theme of courage in the face of defeat, of personal success achieved through loss, in a stunningly contemporary language.

This tremendously famous novella, written in 1952, underlined Hemingway's influence and presence in the literary world and helped him earn the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954.

Ernest Hemingway's masterwork The Sun Also Rises is a great example of his simple but forceful language. The story features two of Hemingway's most memorable characters: Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley, and takes a heartbreaking look at the disillusionment and angst of the post-World War I age.

Follow the flamboyant Brett and the hapless Jake as they travel with a colourful gang of exiles from the riotous nightlife of 1920s Paris to the horrific bullfighting rings of Spain. It is a time of moral bankruptcy, spiritual disintegration, unfulfilled love, and fading illusions. The Sun Also Rises, first published in 1926, helped Hemingway establish himself as one of the best writers of the twentieth century.

Ernest Hemingway flew to Spain in 1937 for the North American Newspaper Alliance to chronicle the civil war there. Three years later, he finished For Whom the Bell Tolls, the best novel to come from "the good struggle."
It relates the narrative of Robert Jordan, a young American in the International Brigades attached to an antifascist guerilla force in the Spanish highlands, of devotion and courage, love and defeat, and the tragic end of an ideal. In his portrayal of Jordan's love for the lovely Maria, in his outstanding narrative of El Sordo's last stand, in his clever mockery of La Pasionaria, and in his refusal to believe in blind faith, he proves he is a master storyteller.
