With the new year comes a renewed sense of interest in Ernest Hemingway so I put a list together on various scholarly works, Hemingway blogs and websites that you might find interesting. In addition, please refer to my Blogroll on the lower right side of this blog – there are some great websites that reference Hemingway.
I’m always visiting Ally Baker’s Hemingway Project blog – and you should too – it has some of the best Hemingway-related interviews on the web! I enjoyed her interviews on Rene Villarreal especially after I read his book. I also enjoyed her interview with Hemingway’s nephew John Sanford.
Another interesting blog is Hemingway’s Paris – it has not been updated recently but the content is great.
Ernest Hemingway: Six Decades of Criticism. Edited by Linda Wagner, Michigan State University Press, 1987. This book contains some great criticism regarding his novels and characters. I found a short piece titled ON HEMINGWAY by Claude McHay (pg. 167-169) that talked about a meeting with McKay and Hemingway in Paris in 1924 discussing In Our Time.
One of the top Hemingway scholars and editor of the Hemingway Review, Susan Beegle has a great interview on Hemingway that can be found here plus a book that is on my radar that I need to read Hemingway’s Neglected Short Stories. There is also an interview, in the Kansas City Star, with her that discusses what she likes about Hemingway.
After receiving a series of papers on Hemingway from Professor Donald Daiker, I had to get Modern American Fiction: Form & Function (edited by Thomas Daniel Young, Louisiana State University Press, 1989) mainly because of Professor Daiker’s chapter – The Affirmative Conclusion of The Sun Also Rises, this is a must read.
I hope you enjoy these books, blogs and websites – let me know what you think…and Have a Happy, Healthy New Year.
