Today is the death anniversary of Ernest Hemingway, the American novelist.He is a celebrated author of the twentieth century. He was economical with words but never appeared terse and always wrote a gripping narrative which had an influence on other writers also. His novel A Farewell to Arms was based on his first hand experience of the First World War when he had enlisted for Ambulance drivers.Similarly he had come up with For Whom the Bell Tolls after the Spanish Civil War which he had covered as a journalist .
He won Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954 for The Old Man and the Sea .
A man full of adventure during his entire life and the one who taught a message of patience and hope , it is ironical that he ended his life on this day in 1961 by committing suicide.
Our humble tributes to the great author !
