Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8 Up. This is both a personal and literary biography, combining material about Hemingway's life and work, emphasizing the way he contributed to and changed American literature. McDaniel uses background information and a variety of primary sources to help readers separate the real man from the many myths that surrounded him. She also includes excerpts from Hemingway's writings and quotes from reviewers and critics to illustrate how his work often mirrored or was influenced by his life. This is an objective account, admiring the man's desire to experience life fully and his enormous talent, but also examining his often cruel and erratic behavior, problems with alcohol, and battles with the emotional problems that eventually led to his suicide. Good-quality black-and-white photos appear throughout. Most biographies of Hemingway have been written for adults; this readable overview is a good choice for YAs.?Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO

From the Author

In examining the work of Ernest Hemmingway, Harold Bloom calls the best of his work "a permanent part of the American mythology." A wide range of views are offered on Hemmingway, including discussions on his works The Sun Also Rises, Nada, "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," and more.

This series is edited by Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University; Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Professor of English, New York University Graduate School. These texts presents critical essays that reflect a variety of schools of criticism on the most important 20th-century criticism on major works from The Odyssey through modern literature. Each volume also contains an introductory essay by Harold Bloom, critical biographies, notes on the contributing critics, a chronology of the author's life, and an index. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Ernest Hemingway (Bloom's Modern Critical Views) by Melissa McDaniel
Bio and memoirs of Ernest the writer.
Good summary of his life and his works and things
that really did happen to him in real life. Very adventurous man-he'd go chase after a story
rather than wait for it to come to him. The story is set straight about the wartime years-
reports of him carrying others to safety. he wasn't even able to move himself.

I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
