Considered one of the greatest American novelists of the 20th century, Ernest Hemingway composed many classic works, including 'The Sun Also Rises', 'For Whom the Bell Tolls', and 'A Farewell to Arms', earning the Nobel Prize in Literature for his efforts. This new edition also appraises Hemingway's acclaimed short fiction, such as 'Hills Like White Elephants' and 'The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber'. This new volume features a brand-new selection of critical essays about Hemingway, examining the author and his works. A bibliography, chronology, and index are boons to student researchers, and literature professor Harold Bloom offers his insight in the title's introductory essay.
