The Letters of Ernest Hemingway : Volume 4, 1929-1931
The Letters of Ernest
Hemingway, Volume 4, spanning April 1929 through 1931, featuring many previously unpublished letters, records the establishment
of Ernest Hemingway as an author of international renown following the publication of A Farewell to Arms. Breaking new artistic
ground in 1930, Hemingway embarks upon his first and greatest non-fiction work, his treatise on bullfighting, Death in the
Afternoon. Hemingway, now a professional writer, demonstrates a growing awareness of the literary marketplace, successfully
negotiating with publishers and agents and responding to fan mail. In private we see Hemingway's generosity as he provides
for his family, offers support to friends and colleagues, orchestrates fishing and hunting expeditions, and sees the birth
of his third son. Despite suffering injuries to his writing arm in a car accident in November 1930, Hemingway writes and dictates
an avalanche of letters that record in colorful and eloquent prose the eventful life and achievements of an enormous personality.
