2: The Young Years | Hello; I'm Ernest Hemingway and I am one of the most famous, Hotsy-Totsy writers of the 20th century. I was born on July 21, 1899 in suburban Oak Park. I am one of six kids in the family. My father is a physician, and my mom is a musician. Both of my parents are very much wonderful Christians throughout the community. My mom; Grace hoped I would be influenced by her musical interests, but I preferred to go along with my father in our ole' struggle buggy to nearby lakes and ponds to fish in. I just love the outdoors, and that is where most of my writing takes place.

3: Hemingway's Accomplishments | I accomplished writing wonderful books such as: -The Sun Also Rises (1926) -A Farewell to Arms (1929) -For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940) -The Old Man and the Sea (1952); which won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 -I was also given the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. -My memoir of my childhood and early life in Paris, "A Moveable Feast," was published in 1964. -I also accomplished reaching many people agree with my belief that the only thing that counts in life is our actions and that "talking is simply emotionalism." -So I guess you could say during my time I was a big cheese.

4: Discovering A Talent | My work started to emerge when I was just finishing high school and I would go fishing with my father as I grew to love nature and all it's surroundings.

5: Importance During the 1920's I agree with people when they say I was very important in the 1920's because I was a wonderful role model and was a great person for the "young age" to look up to. I wrote mostly about my past and lessons for the future. It is said in many newspapers that my style is considered to have "emotional understatement, laconic dialogue, and crispness." A lot of my writing deals with an inner conflict against certain circumstances.

6: More Interesting Facts... | -I loved to participate in other activities at my high school such as: swimming and, boxing. -I became an honorary second lieutenant in the Red Cross, during my time being served in the army. -During my time I also was able to actually watch an original bull fight. -I died by putting a shotgun to my head and pulling the trigger not understanding much anymore about my life.

8: I was 61 and I had a bad combination of "physical and mental ailments" caused by a lifetime of "always on the go" and fast living. Mentally I had lost my memory. But physically I suffered from rapid weight loss, skin disease, alcoholism, failing eyesight, diabetes, hepatitis, and high blood pressure. Basically my body had broken down, and I could no longer write so therefore I got severely depressed. The only answer to me was to take my own life to numb the pain of everything.

9: In Conclusion, Ernest Hemingway was a wonderful writer. He was always the one to look up to and get the answers for all of lifes questions. Even though he has passed on, we still remember his wonderful effect he had for future generations to come.
