Ernest Hemingway Quote
Ernest Hemingway Travel Quote: It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, in Oak Park, Illinois and died on July 2, 1961. He was an American author and journalist. Hemingway worked on his school newspaper, Trapeze and Tabula, writing primarily about sports and after graduation started his career as a writer in a newspaper office in Kansas City. In 1918, Hemingway went overseas to serve in World War I as an ambulance driver in the Italian Army. For his service, he was awarded the Italian Silver Medal of Bravery.
During the twenties, Hemingway became a member of the group of expatriate Americans in Paris, which he described in his first important work, The Sun Also Rises (1926). Equally successful was A Farewell to Arms (1929), the study of an American ambulance officer’s disillusionment in the war and his role as a deserter. Hemingway used his experiences as a reporter during the civil war in Spain as the background for his most ambitious novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940). Among his later works, the most outstanding is the short novel, The Old Man and the Sea (1952), the story of an old fisherman’s journey, his long and lonely struggle with a fish and the sea, and his victory in defeat.
Ernest Hemingway wrote many novels including A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises, In our Time, The Old Man and the Sea and Death in the Afternoon. Ernest Hemingway won the Nobel Prize in Literature 1954 for his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in The Old Man and the Sea. Also, Ernest Hemingway won the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for fiction and drama for “The Old Man and the Sea” and “Picnic”.
