Following the war in Europe, Hemingway

Mary Welsh-a correspondent whom he had met in London and whom he
would be married to for the last time. In 1953, Hemingway
received a Pulitzer prize for his book "The Old Man and the Sea".
As one critic put it "Hemingway was a cheerful, irascible, by
turns generous, and selfish, expansive and egocentric. Hemingway
was hedonistic and dedicated, in love with life and yet by his
own admission obsessed with death."
By 1960, Hemingway was driven out of Cuba
and moved to Finca, and then he moved to a house in Ketchum,
Idaho. Hemingway was suffering from severe depression, and
anxiety attacks. He had gone to the Mayo clinic in
Massachusetts, to receive electro-shock therapy, but
it didn't work out for him at all. Later that same year,
Hemingway died. He killed him self because of his depression.
