Four Novels The Sun Also Rises; A Farewell to Arms; For Whom the Bell Tolls; The Old Man and the Sea
Synopsis The preeminent writer of his time, Ernest Hemingway wrote emotionally resonant fiction steeped in the experiences of the "lost generation" that came of age during World War I. His tales of American expatriates aimlessly adrift in postwar Europe and people struggling with dignity to persevere in a world marked by violence, cruelty, and senseless death capture the disillusionment and cynicism that were part of the spirit of the age. This literary omnibus collects Hemingway's four best-known novels - The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell to Arms, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Old Man and the Sea. Written with Hemingway's trademark economy of style, but evocative in their delineations of individuals seeking purpose in lives shaped by futility and frustration, these tales pay tribute to a writer who changed the way fiction was written and read in the twentieth century. Ernest Hemingway: Four Novels is part of Barnes & Noble's Library of Essential Writers. Each title in the series presents the finest works - complete and unabridged - from one of the greatest writers in literature in magnificent, elegantly designed hardback editions. Every volume also includes an original introduction that provides the reader with enlightening information on the writer's life and works. Biography The winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, Ernest Hemingway is one of the true giants of modern American literature. Hemingway's punchy, pared-down style and ability to zero in on the perfect characterizing detail of a person or scene has influenced every serious novelist of the second half of the 20th century. Everyone reads him at one time or another.
