Ernest Hemingway

American novelist and short story writer Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961) received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. Succinct and lucid in his prose style, he exercised an enormous influence over English-language authors of the 20th century.

A member of the expatriate Lost Generation circle, Hemingway cultivated a larger-than-life image of vigorous masculinity complemented by an intense sensitivity.

He drew upon his adventures as a big-game hunter, bullfighter, and fisherman for his fiction as well as his service as a WWI ambulance driver and a reporter during the Spanish Civil War and WWII.
