Hemingway most definitely followed a new and unheard of path in his style of writing. He was an innovator and was one of the most important writers of his time.

[VGC1] Once the reader can thoroughly grasp Hemingway's style, he must then learn about Hemingway's past and probable reason for writing these novels to notice their common themes. Hemingway fought and was injured in World War I on the side of the Italians before the United States even entered the war. When the Spanish Revolution broke out in 1937, he became a reporter for an American Newspaper in Spain. He used these two experiences as a basis for two of his novels on For Whom the Bell Tolls and A Farewell to Arms[VGC2] (McCaffrey, John p 45.) Throughout both of these novels, he reveals the horror of war to the reader, while still subtly including metaphors and symbols perceiving the loss in masculinity in the common man.
Hemingway’s literary accomplishments have placed him as one of America’s most renowned authors. Although he became a victim of himself, his stories were at the forefront of a new era of literature.

Truly, his legacy is one that countless people have have, and will, learn from.

To his suicidal death in 1961, Hemingway composed a plethora of works that centered around was a major theme. In his popular 1926 novel, The Sun Also Rises, Hemingway illustrates how war plays a huge role in the real world and character identity. Although the novel features a fresh literary style, enjoyable dialogue, and beautifully constructed meaning, “nothing leads anywhere in the book, and that is perhaps the real point of it” (Young). The characters that Hemingway creates rarely mention the war; nevertheless, it affects everything they do and say. Jake Barnes, the protagonist of the novel, suffers from an emasculating war wound that results “in his frustrated love for an Englishwoman whom time and misfortune have driven into alcoholism, promiscuity, and self-destructive irresponsibility” (Sanderson).

Ernest Hemingway was one of the greatest authors of the twentieth century. His simple style, lucid depictions, and relatable narratives propelled him into a world of literary fame. These unique attributes are inimitable; Hemingway relates to the reader on a deeper level that even the best imitators cannot achieve.

V. Conclusion The only writer who was a significant influence on Fitzgerald’s writing career was Ernest Hemingway. Hemingway’s opinion was highly respected for Fitzgerald’s work and preferred Hemingway’s opinion often more than any other person’s opinion. Fitzgerald was known to be disliked by Hemingway but they both learned a lot from each other and they were both known to own all of each others’ books. Fitzgerald is known as an accomplished author but I felt that he would have been better if he did not become an alcoholic. As F. Scott Fitzgerald himself, I wrote a journal discussing the problems with Zelda Fitzgerald and the battle with alcoholism.
