Hemingway's writing style is different than other writers. His style is more simple, direct, and unadorned. Hemingway has been often described as the master of dialog. William Faulkner does not agree with his style. Faulkner's writing style is more description and detail. He extends in his thoughts and puts it all on there. Hemingway and Faulkner have been rivals in literature for a while, but Faulkner was impressed with his work The Old Man and the Sea.

Ernest Miller Hemingway was born on July 21, 1899, in Cicero, Illinios. He grew up becoming a sports man. His parents, Clarence and Grace, taught him how to hunt, fish and appreciate the outdoors in northern Michigan, where they owned a cabin. In High school, Hemingway respected writing and literature. Writing the school newspaper, Trapeze and Tabula, led him to going to the Kansas City Star. In 1918, Hemingway was an ambulance driver in World War I. He was awarded the Italian Silver Medal of Bravery for his service. Chicago was where Hemingway met his first wife, Hardley Richardson, and they decided to move to Paris. Hemingway soon became a big part of Paris by joining "The Lost Generation". He was able to know other famous artists such as Pablo Picasso and James Joyce. Hemingway committed suicide on July 2, 1961.


The Old Man and the Sea was one of the best books Hemingway has ever written. He used great characters to draw the audience into the story. The book was about an old Cuban fisherman who catches the fish he's been waiting for. This book has given us the idea that we can do anything. Doesn't matter the age.
