Night Before Battle -- I was thinking last night, while we were watching M*A*S*H*, about Hemingway's preoccupation with war. There is an episode of M*A*S*H*, not the one we were watching, where they make a thinly veiled attack on Hemingway's war writing. A famous journalist/author with a red beard and huge physical presence comes to the 4077th and has a run in of philosophy with Hawkeye and BJ (I think it was BJ), and he's written off as a bloodthirsty exploiter of warfare.As a take on Hemingway [...]

So, I didn’t read the Complete short stories of Hemingway. I wanted an introduction, I’d always thought of Hemingway aswell, I’d never really given him much thought. He was just someone I wasn’t interested in reading. Lord help me, I can be dense. I’ve read about a dozen of the stories in this anthology. I asked my husband for his opinion on which ones I should start with and I think that I’ve read a fair sampling, I’ll probably continue to pick this up every now and then and throw [...]

Gelmiş geçmiş en büyüklerden biridir Hemingway. Taklit edilemez, yaptığı bir daha yapılamaz. Onunla başlamış ve bitmiştir. İlk okuyuşumuzda çoğumuz "peh, bu mu yani?" der. Araya yıllar ve bambaşka yazarlar girer. Sonra bir dürtü ile Hemingway tekrar okunur. Hissettiğimiz, yıllar önce asi ve küstah bir genç olarak evin kapısını çarpıp giden ve yıllar sonra başı utançla hafif öne eğik bir şekilde geri dönen kişinin hissettiğine yakındır.

One time there was a bull and his name was not Ferdinand and he cared nothing for flowers.Hemingway’s reputation precedes him: a misogynistic, alcoholic, macho author whose maximum sentence length was five words. Given all this, it is difficult to understand why feminist, vegetarian, and highbrow folks often end up reading and enjoying his work—as I’ve seen happen. Clearly there is more to Hemingway than his myth; but separating the man from his reputation is especially difficult in his ca [...]

***Review of short story "Cat in the Rain", which record has merged with the complete short stories--don't ask me why.***I'm not sure why this story affects me so much more than anything else by Hemingway I've read. There isn't much to it--just a brief conversation that is barely any conversation at all, a passing encounter with a hotel owner and a maid, a stray cat out in the rain. And yet there is also a world of loneliness and displacement and isolation there, never explicit but bleeding bet [...]

Un giorno Hemingway disse che se avesse fatto un incontro di boxe di quindici riprese con Tolstoj ai punti avrebbe perso certamente; ma aggiunse che se però gli si dava l'opportunità di fare un incontro di solo poche riprese col conte, allora gliene avrebbe date di santa ragione, facendolo stramazzare a terra.L'aneddoto non voleva essere solo simpatico. nascondeva una profonda convizione: Hem credeva di essere il numero uno in fatto di racconti. Ci sarebbe da discutere; magari a tavolo, con un [...]

I'm a huge fan of all of Hemingway's works, but this one takes the top. The stories in here are so moving, so real, vividly portraying all kinds of manifestations of human nature. Could talk about these works forever. Each story has so much meaning packed as densely as possible into every bit of text. Any one could easily be analyzed for an entire semester in a college literature class. I'd love to suggest one, but to I wouldn't want to take away from any of the others; each story has something [...]

Che cosa significa saper scrivere?Se qualcuno mi chiedesse che cosa significa saper scrivere, gli consiglierei di leggere i 49 racconti. Ernesto aveva l’Afición per la realtà oltre a uno smisurato talento per descriverla. La sua prima lettura, tanti anni fa, la devo a un verso di Guccini “I nostri miti morti ormai, la scoperta di Hemingway, il sentirsi nuovi, le cose sognate e ora viste” La scoperta di Hemingway… Se non è troppo e non è troppo poco, se è un solo aggettivo ma è quel [...]

مقدمه‌ي داستان گونه‌ي احمد گلشيري درباره‌ي زندگي همينگوي، خود به تنهايي مي توانست يك كتاب مستقل باشد. از طرفي، شناختي از زندگي همينگوي بدست مي‌دهد كه درك داستان‌هاي كوتاهش را ساده‌ و در عين حال عميق‌تر مي‌كند. چرا كه نويسنده ناخودآگاه خودش را مي‌نويسد.

Se dovessi fare, per gioco, una graduatoria dei racconti che più mi sono piaciuti, al primo posto metterei senza dubbio i racconti di Cechov, certo non tutti sono perfetti ma in generale i racconti del medico russo sono splendidi. Accanto ad essi metterei i racconti di Salinger, da I nove racconti ad Alzate l’architrave carpentieri e Seymour introduzione fino a Franny e Zooey, che di fatto sono due racconti: di Salinger i miei racconti preferiti sono Un giorno ideale per i pesci banana e Per [...]

Fishing. Shooting. Bull-fighting. Boxing. Smuggling. War. Murder. Skiing. Big game hunting. Love-making. Hemingway did most of these things. Some of them he just observed with a keen eye. In every case, his experience and/or observation pays off. This is just a wonderful collection of stories. Even the unfinished pieces are well worth reading.

I read this from cover to cover on a beach in Aruba, which was just weird, because somebody dies every ten pages or so. It wasn't really in keeping with the carefree beach vibe we were going for. But you really can't deny Hemingway. I realize the man was a terrible husband and father, that his writing suffered in the end and that he didn't have the most highly evolved views of gender. But despite all that, in his prime, he wrote dozens of truly great stories.At the small Midwestern evangelical l [...]

I've been reading Hemingway's complete short stories just to see if I'd been judging him too harshly all these years. It appears I haven't been judging him harshly enough. What kind of mass hypnosis are the people under who insist Hemingway innovated a lean, economical style--'the Iceberg style', which was named 'multum in parvo' in Ancient Rome and described a style thousands of years old even then? 'A Reader Writes' is one and three quarter pages long, and only the letter embedded in it is ne [...]

It's been a while since I've read Hemingway and I wanted to revisit some of the classics ("The Short and Happy Life of", "The Snows of Kilimanjaro and especially the Nick Adams stories) and see how they held up for me. I wanted to see if they still moved me the way they did when I was a young man deeply impressed and obsessed with Mailer, HST, Bukowski, Hemingway---the larger than life American literary alphas with their brash prose, the booze, the guns, the women, the big game hunt for the perf [...]

Soltanto lo scrittore"che ha cambiato il modo di scrivere di tutto il mondo". Leggere i Quarantanove di Hemingway è stato come riascoltare tutti gli scrittori che avevo conosciuto esprimersi attraverso una sola voce. In Colline come elefanti bianchi, uno dei miei racconti preferiti, si ha l'impressione di leggere un primo Raymond Carver. C'è tutta la delizia del testo sotto al testo, quei rivoli quotidiani che si incagliano nelle apparenze di dialoghi innocui e ordinariratchbook/2015/05/he

Nobody does short stories like Hemingway. Moving between African savannahs, Spanish and French cities and various American settings, he always gets to the point. Human hope and happiness followed by disappointment and loss.

I have read most if not all of the individual collections so this is largely a re-read that picks up any stray stories that I missed.

Included here are some of the finest and most influential American short stories of the 20th century, from Big-Two Hearted River, Parts 1 and 2 to A Clean Well Lighted Place, as well as some of the most famous, A Cat in the Rain, The Snows of Kilimanjaro, The Killers, and more. This anthology published in 1987 includes all the stories from In Our Time, Men Without Women, and Winner Take Nothing, as well as those added in The First Forty-Nine Short Stories collection and those included in various [...]

داستان های کوتاه همینگوی که از بهترین داستان های کوتاه جهان است، و در بسیاری از کلاس های نویسندگی جهان به عنوان الگوی ایجاز و تمثیل تدریس می شوند، متاسفانه در زبان فارسی، سرنوشت چندان جالبی نداشته اند، چرا که اغلب توسط کسانی که با زبان همینگوی آشنا نبوده اند، ترجمه شده اند. به [...]

A writer whose self-absorbed mendacity cannot but shine through even in his completely unadorned and occasionally witty style. One wonders what he might have been without the inescapable self-hatred which ended him.

4.5/5 Hemingway. Maskülen, naif üstelik aynı zamanda minimal diyalog ustası. Tabii içi boşaltılmış bir minimallik değil söz konusu olan. Tınısı çok başka. Öyle ki bana diyaloglardan keyif almanın nasılını öğretti. Öykülerdeki diyaloglardan tek bir cümleyi gün içinde öylesine kurup durduğum da oldu. Hemingway bantın başını bulmak gibi, gerisi geliyor. Melankolisi, buruk neşesi, zaman zaman beliren cümbüşüyle.Başucumda kesin kalacaklar:Klimanjaro’nun Karla [...]

I hate giving up on a book, especially after I'm 54% through it, as my kindle informs me. But this was just not for me. I hated it, myself and Hemingway. I loved Old Man and the Sea and expected more of the same. Alas not. All this horrid abrasive men's stuff brought out the wus(s?) in me. Tormenting and slowly killing bulls etc sucks. I realise I'm in the minority but don't really care about that. 2*s for what I've read so far and not a jot or a tiitle more

I am only commenting here on "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber".Why happy moments in ones life are so cruelly short and why this happiness for some is difficult to keep ?Why price to pay for those few happy moments yet is so deadly steep ? While Hemingway was in love-hate *relationship* with Lady Brett Ashly ("Fiesta"), here the wife of Francis Macomber is presented as the *final* Hemingway's outlook on the typical woman's character: domineering, lusty bitch, which enjoyed humiliating he [...]

The story is about two American couple, who are unnamed, staying in a hotel on the Italian coast on a rainy day, the woman spots a cat outside, goes down to fetch for it but does not find it. That is pretty much what goes down in the story, or is it?As for Hemingway being Hemingway we are bound to think that there is something more, something deeper. While reading the story we understand the woman is trying to express her yearning for a lot of things. The cat that she keeps repeating that she wa [...]

As a writer I find reading Hemingway to be an addiction. His exquisite use of dialogue is second to none. The economy with which he wields his pen masterful, but for every word read I cannot help but reflect upon my own inadequacies. And yet like any addict I keep coming back for more. I have my favourite Hemingway stories which I will review in time but of his collected works they are something of a mixed bag. At his worst I could not fail to give Papa 5 stars but most notable in this volume ar [...]

Love Hemingway, so easily a 5 star. The first 49 short stories were a rehash for me, but well worth it. A few gems at the end I'd never read before, too. Many, if not all of these stories, I believe are very much autobiographical so one can learn much about Mr. Hemingway's life here. I wonder if it's true that he had 11 shorts, some poems and his first novel lost when thrown out by his woman of the time; copies and all as depicted in the last story.I've heard several people lately complaining th [...]

Three-and-a-half pages. The husband, the wife, the owner of the hotel they're staying. And the cat in the rain. From these, Hemingway tells the universal story of husbands who find their wives tiresome, unimportant and not worth listening to. Lots of them here at , for sure.
