Ernest Hemingway

1899-1961

Novelist

Ernest Hemingway was acclaimed for his powerful storytelling and his larger-than-life exploits. From bullfighting to big-game hunting, Hemingway pursued many interests and incorporated his experiences into evocative and unusual stories. For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940), for example, was written after he witnessed the Spanish Civil War; while A Farewell to Arms (1929) reflects Hemingway's experiences in World War I.

He won both the Pulitzer Prize and the Nobel Prize for literature, but his successes could not overcome his personal demons, and Hemingway eventually committed suicide at his home in Idaho.
