Abstract:

"While many people are familiar with the public image of Hemingway and the legendary accounts of his life, few knew him as an intimate. With this collection ofletters, presented for the first time as a Scribner Classic, a new Hemingway emerges. Ranging from 1917 to 1961, this generous selection of nearly six hundred letters is, in effect, both a self-portrait and an autobiography. In his own words, Hemingway candidly reveals himself to a wide variety of people: family, friends, enemies, editors, translators, and amost all the prominent writers of his day. In so doing he proves to be one of the most entertaining letter writers of all time" --Cover, p.2.
