The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway, assembling the first forty-nine stories and a number of other, previously uncollected ones. Hemingway and Fame A full generation after his death Ernest Hemingway remains one of the most famous American writers.
Even those who have never read a word he has written, in school or college or on their own, are aware of his presence in the world of celebrity - a rugged macho figure called Papa with a signature white beard.
The outpouring of recognition and praise that followed his suicide on the morning of July 2,nearly obliterated the boundaries of space and time. Hemingway's passing was memorialized by the Kremlin and the White House, in the Vatican and the bullrings of Spain.
Manifestly, at the time of his death he had become to the general public something more - or less - than a writer of stories and novels. He had become a legendary figure, and seems fated to remain one.
Critics and college professors lament this state of affairs. The spurious anecdotes and half-baked biographies and Key West contests for Hemingway look-alikes only serve to draw attention away from his work, they assert, so that the great unwashed public will not take him seriously.
This is a danger, all right, the same danger that faced the other most celebrated of American writers, Mark Twain. Twain wore a white suit and a mustache, took his comedy act on the road, and otherwise made himself so conspicuous as to be widely thought of in his own time as a mere entertainer.
Twain has survived his celebrity, as will Hemingway, and for the same reason: They wrote some wonderful books. But both writers have been admitted to the canon despite the off-putting aroma of publicity that surrounds them.
So certain questions impose themselves. Why was Hemingway, like Twain, inclined to present himself - or some versions of himself - to public view? Knowing the risks, as he certainly did, why did he take the chance?1 The Code of the Hero in Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea In Ernest Hemingway’s novel The Old Man and the Sea the protagonist Santiago has chosen.
