About Ernest Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway ranks as the most famous of twentieth-century American writers; like Mark Twain, Hemingway is one of those rare authors most people know about, whether they have read him or not. The difference is that Twain, with his white suit, ubiquitous cigar, and easy wit, survives in the public imagination as a basically, lovable figure, while the deeply imprinted image of Hemingway as rugged and macho has been much less universally admired, for all his fame. Hemingway has been regarded less as a writer dedicated to his craft than as a man of action who happened to be afflicted with genius. When he won the Nobel Prize in 1954, Time magazine reported the news under Heroes rather than Books and went on to describe the author as "a globe-trotting expert on bullfights, booze, women, wars, big game hunting, deep sea fishing, and courage." Hemingway did in fact address all those subjects in his books, and he acquired his expertise through well-reported acts of participation as well as of observation; by going to all the wars of his time, hunting and fishing for great beasts, marrying four times, occasionally getting into fistfights, drinking too much, and becoming, in the end, a worldwide celebrity recognizable for his signature beard and challenging physical pursuits.

"O Adeus às Armas", muito provavelmente o melhor romance americano resultante da experiência da Primeira Guerra Mundial, é a história inesquecível de Frederic Hendry, um condutor de ambulâncias que presta serviço na frente italiana, e da sua trágica paixão por uma bela enfermeira inglesa. Ernest Hemingway foi um dos autores que mais contribuiu para revolucionar o estilo da ficção de língua inglesa. Veio por isso a receber o Prémio Nobel de Literatura, em 1954. Este é o primeiro lançamento desta nova colecção de qualidade que a Editora Livros do Brasil se orgulha de publicar.
Nick and his younger sister Littless in The Last Good Country are seen as indications of Hemingway in his early days. The plot of The Last Good Country was surely based on events in his life. Nick and Littless, worried by the pursuit of the two hateful game wardens and a sly boy, take the precaution of bringing a gun to defend themselves, and to hunt with. As they escape into the virgin forest, however, Nick and Littless become aware of the natural abundance around them. When they see the woods and Nick says, ¡°That's why they build cathedrals to be like this¡±. It is natural, indeed, that the remaining part of an unfinished novel, written by a writer who had been well known to his readers and critics both as an adorer of nature and an analyst of love, could be viewed as a continued attempt to embody an Edenic ideal of nature, as well as an exemplar of his consistent repetition of precise description of nature.
