Hemingway's Birthday

It’s the birthday of Ernest Hemingway, born in Oak Park, Illinois (1899).

As a young man, he wanted to fight in World War I, but he had bad eyesight so he volunteered as an ambulance driver for the American Red Cross in Italy. Only one month after he started, he was passing out chocolates to Italian soldiers on the frontlines and got hit by shrapnel from an exploding shell. He spent several weeks in the hospital, where he started suffering from insomnia. He couldn’t sleep without a light on for fear that he might die in the night. He traveled back to his parents’ home, still recuperating from his injury.

Hemingway lived with his parents for months, occasionally hunting and fishing with friends. He wrote a few adventure stories about the war and sent them to the Saturday Evening Post, but they were rejected. His parents accused him of “sponging,” told him to get a real job, and his mother finally threw him out of the house when he was 21.

He got married, moved to Paris, and started hanging out with writers like Ezra Pound, James Joyce, and Gertrude Stein.

He was forced to begin over again when he lost a suitcase that carried every manuscript and every copy of every manuscript he had written so far in Paris. Hemingway tried to write as simply and objectively as possible, using very few adjectives or adverbs.
