Biographical Note

Ernest Hemingway was born and raised in Cicero (now Oak Park), Illinois. He began his writing career as a journalist for the Kansas City Star and served as an ambulance driver in World War One, during which he rescued an Italian soldier while seriously wounded and received the Italian Silver Medal for Military Valor. In the 1920s he became part of the "Lost Generation" of American expatriates living in Paris, where he wrote his first novel, The Sun Also Rises (1926). Other important literary works by Hemingway include A Farewell to Arms (1929), For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940), the Pulitzer Prize winning The Old Man and the Sea (1951), and the posthumous A Moveable Feast (1964). Hemingway served as a war correspondent during the Spanish Civil War and World War II. In 1954, he won the Nobel Prize in Literature "for his mastery of the art of narrative...and for the influence he has exerted on contemporary style." Hemingway died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Ketchum, Idaho in 1961.
