"Ernest Hemingway on Writing" by Ernest Hemingway: A Review
An assemblage of reflections on the nature of writing and the writer from one the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived.
This book contains Hemingway s reflections on the nature of the writer and on elements of the writer's life, including specific and helpful advice to writers on the craft of writing, work habits, and discipline. The Hemingway personality comes through in general wisdom, wit, humor, and insight, and in his insistence on the integrity of the writer and of the profession itself.
Edited by Larry W. Phillips, this is a fascinating collection of Hemingway's reflections on the craft of writing, and a recommended read for anyone with an interest in writing or for fans of Hemingway's work.
