Or Not To Be

Or Not To Be (for Robin Williams)

One leaves us by his own hand.

One that loved wisely but too well.

To sleep, when peaceful dreams may come.

May. If so, he knows. For us,

there’s tomorrow, and hopefully tomorrow, and tomorrow.

It was on this day (7/2/61) that Ernest Hemingway committed suicide in Ketchum, Idaho. He’d had trouble writing and had been working on a long novel called The Sea Book. The writing was difficult and he only published a section under the title The Old Man and the Sea (1952).
Despite the fact that the book was well reviewed and won the Pulitzer Prize, he was disappointed with himself for only being able to finish that short novella.

July 2, 1961  a despondent, scarred and scared Ernest Hemingway committed suicide at age 61.
There have been five suicides in the Hemingway family over four generations — Hemingway’s father, Clarence; siblings Ursula, Leicester and Ernest; granddaughter Margaux.

LIFE’s Alfred Eisensstaedt went to Cuba to photograph Hemingway for the September 1952 issue, he encountered not a gracious (if perhaps prickly) fellow artist and man of letters, but a thoroughly disagreeable, paranoid, gin-sodden lunatic.
Incredibly, one of Hemingway’s most highly regarded novels, the short masterpiece, The Old Man and the Sea, was first published, in its entirety, in a single issue of LIFE magazine in September 1952.
See the photos here.
