“Writing is something that you can never do as well as it can be done,” said Ernest Hemingway, and he did it better than most. Through his adventurous life and authentic work, he became a larger-than-life cultural icon of his time and one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. Through his work, this course examines the genesis and influences that made Hemingway the writer we know, the writer that was selected for the sort of quality and precision that defined his writing and earned the respect and recognition of the Nobel Committee for his “powerful, style-making mastery of the art of modern narration.” (Prerequisite: COLL300)
