"With this essay collection, Mark Cirino and Mark P. Ott have opened another set of fruitful paths into Hemingway's work. History continues to show the richness of the Hemingway oeuvre; the editors' focus on both travel and memory is consistently dynamic. All readers will learn from this collection." Linda Wagner-Martin, Frank Borden Hanes Professor of English, The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill "The wide-ranging essays in this impressive collection provide an important and convincing analysis of Hemingway'consciously crafted aesthetic--the fusion of past experience with artistic creation. Aptly titled, Hemingway and the Geography of Memory moves us further toward understanding this artist's practice of filtering experience through the scrim of fiction." Gail D. Sinclair, coeditor of Key West Hemingway: A Reassessment Ernest Hemingway's work reverberates with a blend of memory, geography, and lessons of life revealed through the trauma of experience. Michigan, Italy, Spain, Paris, Africa, and the Gulf Stream are some of the most distinctive settings in Hemingway's short fiction, novels, articles, and correspondence. In his fiction, Hemingway revisited these sites, reimagining and transforming them. Travel was the engine of his creative life, as the recurrent contrast between spaces provided him with evidence of his emerging identity as a writer. The contributors to Ernest Hemingway and the Geography of Memory employ an intriguing range of approaches to Hemingway's work, using the concept of memory as an interpretive tool to enhance understanding of Hemingway's creative process. The essays are divided into four sections---Memory and Composition, Memory and Allusion, Memory and Place, and Memory and Truth---and examine the Garden of Eden, In our Time, The Old Man and the Sea, Green Hills of Africa, Under Kilimanjaro, The Sun Also Rises, A Moveable Feast, A Farewell to Arms, and Death in the Afternoon, as well as several of Hemingway's short stories. Ernest Hemingway and the Geography of Memory is a fascinating volume that will appeal to the Hemingway schlar as well as the general reader.

To many, the life of Ernest Hemingway has taken on mythic proportions. From his romantic entanglements to his legendary bravado, the elements of Papa’s persona have fascinated readers, turning Hemingway into such an outsized figure that it is almost impossible to imagine him as a real person. James Hutchisson’s biography reclaims Hemingway from the sensationalism, revealing the life of a man who was often bookish and introverted, an outdoor enthusiast who revered the natural world, and a generous spirit with an enviable work ethic. This is an examination of the writer through a new lens—one that more accurately captures Hemingway’s virtues as well as his flaws. Hutchisson situates Hemingway’s life and art in the defining contexts of the women he loved and lost, the places he held dear, and the specter of mental illness that haunted his family. This balanced portrait examines for the first time in full detail the legendary writer’s complex medical history and his struggle against clinical depression. The first major biography of Hemingway in over twenty years, this monumental achievement provides readers with a fresh, comprehensive look at one of the most acclaimed authors of the twentieth century.

In 1918, a one-month stint with the American Red Cross ambulance corps at the Italian front marked the beginning of Ernest Hemingway's fascination with Italy -- a place second only to Upper Michigan in stimulating his lifelong passion for geography and local expertise. Hemingway's Italy offers a thorough reassessment of Italy's importance in the author's life and work during World War I and the 1920s, when he emerged as a promising young writer, and during his maturity in the late 1940s and early 1950s. This collection of eighteen essays presents a broad view of Hemingway's personal and literary response to Italy. The contributors, some of the most distinguished Hemingway scholars, incorporate new biographical and historical information as well as critical approaches ranging from formalist and structuralist theory to cultural and interdisciplinary explorations. Included are discussions of Italy's psychological functioning in Hemingway's life, the author's correspondence with his father during the writing of A Farewell to Arms, his stylistic experimentation and characterization in that novel, his juxtaposition of the themes of love and war, and his take on Fascism in both his fiction and journalistic work. In addition, the essayists explore relevant contexts of period and place -- such as the rise of Fascism, ethnic attitudes, and the cultural currents between Italy and the United States. A landmark study, Hemingway's Italy brings long-overdue attention to this great writer's international role as cultural ambassador. Contributors: Rena Sanderson, Nancy R. Comley, Kim Moreland, Steven Florczyk, Kirk Curnutt, Lawrence H. Martin, John Robert Bittner, Joseph M. Flora, Jeffrey A. Schwarz, J. Gerald Kennedy, H. R. Stoneback, Beverly Taylor, Ellen Andrews Knodt, Linda Wagner-Martin, Robert Fleming, Miriam B. Mandel, Margaret O'Shaughnessey, Stephen L. Tanner, Vita Fortunati

There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things, and because it takes a man's life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave. In the winter of 1933, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Pauline set out on a two-month safari in the big-game country of East Africa, camping out on the great Serengeti Plain at the foot of magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. “I had quite a trip,” the author told his friend Philip Percival, with characteristic understatement. Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's account of that expedition, of what it taught him about Africa and himself. Richly evocative of the region's natural beauty, tremendously alive to its character, culture, and customs, and pregnant with a hard-won wisdom gained from the extraordinary situations it describes, it is widely held to be one of the twentieth century's classic travelogues.
