Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1971) was an American writer and journalist. His merciless and unpretentious writing, known as the Iceberg Theory, had a profound effect on twentieth-century fiction’s language style; On the other hand, his adventurous life and image made him admire the next generation. He wrote most of his literary work between the mid-twenties and mid-fifties of the twentieth century and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. He published seven novels, six collections of short stories, and two non-fiction books.
After his death, three more novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction books were published. Many of his published works are considered classics in American literature. Hemingway was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After graduating from high school, he worked as a reporter for The Kansas City Star for a few months. When World War I broke out, he enlisted as an ambulance driver and traveled to the Italian battlefield.
In 1917 he was seriously injured and returned home. His wartime experience is the inspiration for his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929). ‘The sun also rises is one of his well-known novels. Today I’ll be trying to describe the novel.
