This paper examines the life and the writings of Ernest Hemingway by focusing on three of his works, "The Snows of Kilimanjaro," "The Short Happy Life of Kilimanjaro" and "A Farewell to Arms." It discusses how each story argues that a man may only find his true worth when confronted by danger, usually in the form of the dangers of the natural world. It provides a brief overview of his life and shows how as both novelist and short-story writer, Hemingway's style is characterized by crispness, laconic dialogue and emotional understatement and how both his writings and his personal life exerted a profound influence on American writers of his time.

From the Paper:

"Hemingway's writing style was no doubt influenced by an early job as a reporter for the Kansas City Star. He left this job within a few months to serve as a volunteer ambulance driver in Italy during World War I. He later transferred to the Italian infantry and was severely wounded. After the war he was a correspondent for the Toronto Star and then settled in Paris. While there, he was encouraged in creative work by the American expatriate writers Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. After 1927 Hemingway spent long periods of time in Key West, Florida, and in Spain and Africa. These adventures, his career as a journalist and his work in war zones all influenced his philosophy and writing style (Clifford, 1999, p. 22)."
