The Letters of Ernest Hemingway

The preparation for print publication of volumes 3-5 of a projected 17-volume edition of American author Ernest Hemingway's complete letters. (36 months)

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, being published by Cambridge University Press, is a comprehensive scholarly edition of the some 6,000 surviving letters of Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), about 85% previously unpublished. Winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize in Literature, Hemingway made a profound impact on modern prose. His life and work still command enormous popular as well as scholarly interest worldwide. The letters not only provide important new biographical information and insights into the artistic achievement of this most influential American writer, they constitute a running eyewitness history of much of the twentieth century. The edition is planned for publication in 17 volumes at two-year intervals. Volumes 1 and 2 (spanning 1907-1925) were published in 2011 and 2013. The Project is requesting three-year funding (October 2015-September 2018) to see into print volumes 3 and 4 and complete the manuscript of volume 5, encompassing Hemingway's letters from 1926 through 1934.
