Ernest Hemingway Facts
American Modernist author of The Old Man and the Sea, known for his sparse writing style, his sporting lifestyle, and for being a part of The Lost Generation.
He was very athletic in high school and participated in boxing, track and field, water polo, and football.
Often wrote about his own experiences in war and travel, in a tough, succinct writing style that he called The Iceberg Theory, in which the majority of the meaning, like an iceberg in the water, is kept hidden.
Married first wife Elizabeth Hadley Richardson in 1921, but left her for Pauline Pfeiffer.
He was both an admirer and drinking buddy of James Joyce's.
