The son of a small-town doctor, Hemingway was born in Illinois in 1898. From his childhood he was fond of fishing and shooting-interests, which were to colour his life and work.
Hemingway was educated at schools in America and France. His father wanted him to be a doctor, but he became a newspaper reporter, and then served with the Italian Red Cross as an ambulance driver in World War I.
Badly wounded in the fighting, Hemingway used this, as well as his boyhood experiences, as the material for his first books.
Ernest Hemingway died in 1961. He left a large amount of unpublished material, which is being studied by his friends and biographers. Some parts of it have already been published.
Now let us look at his three classics. If you have not read them yet, you will enjoy reading them some day.
