Xinyun Xiao Professor: Caroline Burke WRT 102.46 27 February 2014 Analysis About Hemingway’s Writing skills After reading chapter two-four of the Thoughtful Writing by Dr. Hammond, I can infer three useful and powerful writing skills from the book. These are "telling fact”, “using quality statement” and “making readers draw inferences from words". I may choose this quote, which from Ernest Hemingway on Writing "I am trying to make, before I get through, a picture of the whole world---or as much of it as I have seen. Boiling it down always, rather than spreading it out thin." A powerful picture is more than an image; it can arouse viewer’s interest and make them meditate on it as well.

He told the company, “'I don't care if I never see another Hemingway story again’” (http://narrativemagazine.org/html/eden.htm). For Jenks, “Publishing more Hemingway seemed less interesting than publishing new writers, which is what I came to Scribner's to do” (http://narrativemagazine.org/html/eden.htm). Ultimately Jenks did take on the impossible task of editing Hemingway. One would expect a Hemingway expert to do the editing of The Garden of Eden, however for Jenks, editing Hemingway was an entirely new experience. Eric Pooley, a writer for New York Magazine, states, “[Jenks] hadn't read a Hemingway novel in years.
World War I is over and the exuberance of jazz musicians, symbolist painters, and American expatriates fills the “City of Light” with a buzz as sharp as electricity. The city revolves around nothing more than café life, drinking, and dining. A young, American man enters a small, smoky café that is popular among other expatriates. He is the world-famous novelist, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and he sits down next to Ernest Hemingway. The two authors begin a friendship that characterizes the artistic culture of 1920's Paris – an era described by Gertrude Stein as "where the twentieth century was."
He also had many influences, from his father’s suicide to painters that influenced his writings. Ernest Hemingway, an American novelist and short story writer, whose style is characterized by crispness, childish dialogue and emotional understatement that has made him a major novelist and short story writer (Riley 231). Ernest Hemingway was born in Oak Park, Illinois on July, 21 1899 to his mother Grace Hall and his father Clarence Edmonds Hemingway (Rood 187). Even though he was born into a upper-middle class family, he single handedly revised the Byronic stereotype of the artist-adventurer (Lesniak 20). Hemingway’s childhood was rarely mentioned, other then that he tried to run away from home several times when he was still in high school (Lesniak 23).
As one looks at Ernest Hemingway’s career and life, one is truly able to see how interesting his life was simply by reading his books. This lavish lifestyle attributed to his writing style, and this culmination ultimately led him to become a recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Not only did his great ability to translate his life experiences to works of literature help him win this award, but also his ability to use his art of symbolism and to appeal to readers of all ages and education.
In my eyes this story was very well written, and stays on the topic through out the whole story very well. If I could have changed anything in this story, it would be, I would have given the old man a name. The reason I would have given him a name is because the whole time I was reading this story I was wondering who the old man was. Works Cited "Ernest Hemingway - Facts". Nobelprize.org.
