The Letters of Ernest Hemingway

Preparation for publication of Volumes 5, 6, and 7 of a scholarly edition of 6,000 surviving letters of American author Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). (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scholarly edition of the some 6,000 surviving letters of Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961)--about 85% previously unpublished--in a projected 17 volumes. A 1954 Nobel Laureate, Hemingway made a profound impact on modern prose and still commands 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 20th century. Volumes 1-4 (spanning 1907-1931) were published between 2011 and 2017. We are requesting three-year funding (October 2018-September 2021) to complete and see into print volume 5, to submit and see through pre-production volume 6 (for publication November 2021), and to begin textual and annotation work on volume 7, encompassing Hemingway's letters from 1932 through May 1941.
