(adjective) of, relating to, or like Ernest Hemingway or his literary style. In homage to Ernest Hemingway’s birthday today, July 21; we will honor Hemingway’s style. Yes, that’s right, the man gets his own style name. Hemingway is famous for his style: the short, factual sentences, the declarative nature of the words – Hemingway popularized this at a time when people were peppering parenthetical prepositional phrases into their work like there was no tomorrow. It’s as though everyone else was painting huge oil canvases, and Hemingway drew a penciled sketch that was somehow better than all the other works of the time. Pretty impressive stuff. Thanks Shmoop for the awesome metaphor!
Happy Birthday Ernest Hemingway!(via wordsnquotes)
Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.
