More About the Author

Anthony Burgess (25th February 1917-22nd November 1993) was one of the UK's leading academics and most respected literary figures. A prolific author, during his writing career Burgess found success as a novelist, critic, composer, playwright, screenwriter, travel writer, essayist, poet and librettist, as well as working as a translator, broadcaster, linguist and educationalist. His fiction also includes NOTHING LIKE THE SUN, a recreation of Shakespeare's love-life, but he is perhaps most famous for the complex and controversial novel A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, exploring the nature of evil. Born in Manchester, he spent time living in Southeast Asia, the USA and Mediterranean Europe as well as in England, until his death in 1993.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is an excellent biography, superbly illustrated, for the non-academic wishing to know of Hemingway's life and writing. It is clearly written and with enough depth to get a good insight into the man who produced some of America's finest writing in the 20th Century. Hemingway had his flaws and these are not glossed over as one would expect from such a superb writer as Anthony Burgess. My copy arrived in good order and good time in accordance with the supplier's listing for this book. Great service. Thanks.

Ernest Hemingway and His World (Pictorial Biography)
by Anthony Burgess
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 2 April 2013

This review is from: Ernest Hemingway and His World (Pictorial Biography) (Paperback)
Burgess-Hemingway (1985)
Anthony Burgess: Ernest Hemingway and His World, 1985 (1978), 128pp, Charles Scrivener

Reissued to coincide with the centenary of Hemingway's birth, Anthony Burgess's insightful biography traces the rapidly changing scene from a happy, complacent childhood to the grim reality of the First World War and the vulgar unreality of the Second; from the Paris of the 1920s to the Spain of Civil War and the excitements of African safari to the somber last years in Cuba. Hemingway was rich and successful from an early age, yet public the fact that acclaim and even the Nobel Prize could not disguise he was a moody, suffering, and sometimes vicious figure -- a man who was finally unable to live with his own image.<<<Publisher's text 1999 reprint

Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was an American author and journalist. His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations. Hemingway's great achievement was to free the novel from all the languid decoration and cozy indirectness that was its early twentieth-century inheritance. His terse prose taught the writer to engage life to the fullest in order to write about it, and his own life was the perfect demonstration of that principle.
