Abstract: The second volume in this edition of all surviving letters of Ernest Hemingway illuminates Hemingway’s literary apprenticeship in the legendary milieu of expatriate Paris in the 1920s. We witness the development of his friendships with the likes of Sylvia Beach, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and John Dos Passos. Striving to “make it new,” he emerges from the tutelage of Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein to forge a new style, gaining recognition as one of the most formidable talents of his generation. In this period, Hemingway publishes his first three books, including In Our Time (1925), and discovers a lifelong passion for Spain and the bullfight, quickly transforming his experiences into fiction as The Sun Also Rises (1926). The volume features many previously unpublished letters and a humorous sketch that was rejected by Vanity Fair. Included are a General Editor’s Introduction by Sandra Spanier and an Introduction to the Volume by J. Gerald Kennedy, along with detailed annotations, chronology, five maps, illustrations, roster of correspondents, calendar of letters, and index.

The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: Volume 3, 1926-1929 (Book) [show prizes]
Title: The Letters of Ernest Hemingway: Volume 3, 1926-1929
Author: Ernest Hemingway
Editor: Robert W. Trogdon, Editor
Editor: Rena Sanderson, Editor
Editor: Sandra Spanier, Editor
Abstract: The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 3: 1926-1929, featuring many previously unpublished letters, follows a rising star as he emerges from the literary Left Bank of Paris and moves into the American mainstream. Maxwell Perkins, legendary editor at Scribner's, nurtured the young Hemingway's talent, accepting his satirical novel Torrents of Spring (1926) in order to publish what would become a signature work of the twentieth century: The Sun Also Rises (1926). By early 1929 Hemingway had completed A Farewell to Arms. Hemingway's letters of this period also reflect landmark events in his personal life, including the dissolution of his first marriage, his remarriage, the birth of his second son, and the suicide of his father. As the volume ends in April 1929, Hemingway is setting off from Key West to return to Paris and standing on the cusp of celebrity as one of the major writers of his time.
