one of the photos – in big sweater – by Canadian photographer Yousuf Karsh (1908 – 2002). Also – oops, my entry appears twice (maybe webmaster can correct this) – problem with Verisign code -- & this reminds me, Hemingway, & all writers before him, of course wrote without PCs, word-processing programs / spellcheck, for better or worse -- & in fact picture there, him with notepad -- Whenever there are PC Problems, maybe all of us wonder, maybe the ‘good ol days’ better? – all one needed was pen & paper, imagination, & modicum of discipline!

1) ‘heroic battle with depression’ – I’ve had similar problems, also alcoholism (now sober in AA) – but in Ernest’s case, from what I know, the treatments at the time did more harm than good – unsophisticated electroshock etc., maybe was a contributing factor; 2) wanted to ask – read somewhere that he said, ‘Taras Bulba’ (N. Gogol) one of 10-best books ever – is this is true, what are the other 9?

Ernest Hemingway lived a life complete. He was a man of the world, well traveled, well read, and close to nature. He smiled often, drank more, and never lost a chance for adventure. This video is a mini-biography, presenting the highlights of his life.

Hi, I found this site while surfing the web, and wanted to say that you have the true birth date of Hemingway as wrong. He was born July 21, 1899, and died about two weeks from his 62 birthday. His struggle with depression throughout his life was heroic. Scott Rossi.
