The Outsider Traits in Ernest Hemingway’s Short Stories


Imran Majeed Bhat, Shilpa Singh

Ernest Hemingway, the American author and journalist was a writer who influenced 20th century American fiction greatly and whose adventurous life and magical public image influenced later generations as well. Born in Oak Park, Illinois, he became a reporter for a few months for ‘The Kansas City Star’ just after he had finished his high school education. At the very young age of 18, we see him at the Italian front working with the World War-I ambulance drivers, he gets wounded there and returned home. His war-time experiences gave him the base for his novel “A Farewell to Arms”. He became a modernist and composed his novel ‘The sun also Rises”. Thereafter there is no end to his travels and war expeditions. He goes to Spain to cover Spanish Civil War and after his return writes his well-known novel “For Whom the Bell Tolls”. Then he leaves for London during World War-II. He wrote his most famous novel “The Old Man and the Sea” in 1952. Soon he went on Safari to Africa where he met two successive plane crushes. He bought a house in Ketchum, Idaho where he committed suicide in 1961.
