365 Daily Lessons - Week 2 Day 2 Literature - Ernest Hemingway



When it comes to classic literature I went through a period in my early twenty's when I would visit the Library after work and roam the old shelves in the vault.  I found Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, Proust and loved getting lost in their worlds.  With regard to Ernest Hemingway I've only read one of his works - A Moveable Feast.  This is actually a memoir of his time being an expatriate writer in Paris in the 1920's.  So, I really haven't read a literary creation of his, yet.  Have you?

I think I let his personae of bullfighting and hunting guide my interest in his writing.  These two things have little to absolutely no interest to me so I passed him by.  However, reading more about his first novel, The Sun Also Rises (1926) has me intrigued.  A disaffected young American spending time in Spain and France.  I could go for that!

Have you read many, or any, of Ernest Hemingway's books?  Do you have a favorite?
