Master of short stories, masterpieces of his work. His sentences are so incredibly powerful, concise (often), long and winding (sometimes), full of rythm and truth (always),

The single finest edition of Hemingway's work. 9 octobre 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hemingway's short stories were always a bit more finely crafted than his novels. The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway allows the reader to examine and even partake in the development of Hemingway as a writer; from his early Nick Adams stories, a few of which went on to become The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell To Arms, To Have And Have Not; to the mature Hemingway who wrote about his experiences as a reporter during the Spanish Civil War and later in Europe between the wars. This work contains some of the finest shorts of American literature. (Read The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber; The Snows of Kilimanjaro; A Clean Well Lighted Place; Big Two-Hearted River (parts I & II); Hills Like White Elephants--too many good ones to mention them all.) There are some poor stories as well but even these are well constructed. In short, the definitive volume of Hemingway--better than any single novel or other collection. A must have.... (I'm holding mine in my hand as I type with the other--) Little known fact: The Finca Vigia Edition contains an editorial change in the story A Clean Well Lighted Place--a moved line of dialogue--which was made by a silly editor after Hemingway's death and which renders the text incorrect with respect to his orignal published manuscript. In fact there are no correct versions of this short story presently in print. The accurate version, though, may be found in the Library of Congress.

A true original - Master of the Short Story 31 janvier 2003
Par M. Dog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hemingway is one of the finest writers this country has every produced. In these politically correct times, he was fallen into disfavor, and that is a crying shame. His terse, lean lines are so easy to mock today, but what people forget is that he created that style, molded it and trimmed it down from the long-winded, more European style of writing that was so popular before his advent. As a short story writer, he is the master. Not a wasted word, and every word carved in its perfect place. When a Hemingway character plunges their arm into a cold stream, the reader can feel the ice cold numbing the fingers. His short story, "The Short, Happy Life of Francis Macomber" turned me onto reading as a teenager. So much came from him, and so much still comes from him. Raymond Carver, James Ellroy, Elmore Leonard and many others all walk a clear path that he cut through thick brush.

A master of telling a story 30 juin 1999
Par Frank-Tommy Olsen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The greatest short story writers history produced so far; Chekov, Gorky, Korolenko, Maupassant, Bashevis Singer, William Trevor and of course Hemingway, were more than anything else masters of this type of fiction. Even if they all wrote other great pieces, they were (Trevor still is) truly dedicated to the short story. Ernest Hemingway even said that he had "never yet set out to write a novel - it's always a short story that moves into being a novel". Hemingway's short stories are of the type of fiction that grows on you - becomes better with time - and can be read over and over again. You are brought into the "Hemingway world", have a scene or an event described so vivid that you are almost present, and when the story is over not much might have happened, but you have been there - you felt it and saw it - it all happened there in front of you. Such a big collection of stories over decades of writing will have a few pieces less good than some of the other most brilliant ones, but they are all interesting. From "A very short story" - only two pages long, but with the essence of what really happened between Hemingway and the Red Cross nurse in Italy, that later was to be A Farewell to Arms - to the best known, like "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber", "Hills like White Elephants", "Cat in the Rain" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro". Personally I have many other favourites and I will probably come back to them and keep reading Hemingway stories for the rest of my life.

A must read featuring Hem's finest work 5 mai 2001
Par J. Remington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Hemingway's greatest format was always the short story. With the exception (at least in my mind) of The Sun Also Rises, A Farewell To Arms and For Whom The Bell Tolls (The Old Man And the Sea, although great is overrated at the same time), the tension and economy of line required of the short story form became muddled as Hem tackled the novel.
Although this collection is not complete- missing here are two of my favorite Nick Adams stories- it definately contains Hemingway's finest work. My personal favorite, amoung many many choices included here is both parts of "Big Two Hearted River". Although I am not a fly fisherman, I am a human being and Nick's sense of loss and reflection as it becomes manifested in the wilderness resounds beautifully.
Hemingway is often Thoreau with out the self consciousness.
In re-reading these stories it continued to amaze me how utterly accessible and entertaining Hemingway's short stories remain to this day and how utterly dry, academic and pretentious all the "scholarship" has tried to make him in the unsufferable Lit classes I have often endured.
Hemingway is a great story teller who relates simple narratives that sensually create a spiritual experience. His line of action is clear and devoid of any digression. His avoidance of psycho-babble (thank God he didn't live long enough to experience the 1970's!) and his desire to place things grounded in the reality of doing (actors can learn volumes from reading Hemingway) makes him truly timeless.
There are many great writers who write as if they were talking directly to the audience in a barroom or fireside chat. What I find interesting about Hemingway is a strange void of "talkiness". I never get the sense that he could easily be telling me this story as a dramatic monolouge. His style often manages to transcend spoken language and commune directly with the readers's experience through the written word. In that sense, he is a true author using the written word as a full tool.
I discovered this while trying to adapt some of his short stories into a dramatic monolouge/performance pieces. Hemingway doesn't work as well as Faulkner, Steinbeck, Twain, Dylan Thomas or even Ken Kesey. There isn't an oral tradition stored up waiting to be unlocked in Hemingway's work. They are short stories not tall tales (deconstructionist/feminist/new age/PC/Multi-culti critics leave that last claim alone!)
Maybe that is why Hemingway hasn't really ever been successfully translated to the screen.
At any rate, these collected stories are not meant to be seen or heard, they are must reads. Enjoy and re-discover.

A Must-Have Collection 31 mars 2006
Par Stephen Leary - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Ernest Hemingway was the writer I idolized the most when I was going to school and reading the great writers. It was Hemingway and Faulkner at the top, and nobody else quite ascended to their lofty perch. Hemingway developed a style of writing stripped of excessive descriptions combined with the deft, almost unnoticed repetition of key words. His contribution to literature as a stylist is incalculable. He taught twentieth-century authors how to write dialog, and his influence on famous writers around the globe outshines perhaps that of anyone else. This simple yet power-packed method of writing has aged well over the years, and the stories don't seem dated at all to modern readers. Although he wrote several highly regarded novels, many believe Hemingway's terse, no-frills writing style was best suited for short stories, and the evidence in this volume is hard to argue with. I'll highlight a few of his most famous stories:

The Snows of Kilimanjaro

Harry, a failed writer, ruminates on his wasted literary talent while on safari in Africa. His leg has become infected and he awaits a plane to take him away for medical treatment before his health becomes critical. After he reminisces about many things in his life he could have written about but didn't, the plane finally arrives to pick him up, and what a ride it is! This is an example of what Hemingway called the "wow" ending, and this just may be the best that was ever written. I can't imagine anyone interested in literature not having read this story.

The Short, Happy Life of Francis McComber

Did she or didn't she? McComber and his wife are on safari in Africa, led by a veteran guide who knows how to hunt and how to accommodate tourists looking for a bit of adventure. Like Snows, the ending is shrouded in mystery as the reader is left wondering why things ended the way they did, and who's to blame.

The Killers

Hemingway often wrote according to the principles of his famous "iceberg theory": "There is seven-eighths of it underwater for every part that shows," he said. "Anything you know you can eliminate and it only strengthens your iceberg." This iceberg method of writing is showcased in "The Killers," of which Hemingway said he left out more than just about any other story he wrote. On one level, the story is about a boxer who got on the wrong side of the mob in 1930s Chicago; on another, it refers to Hemingway's literary battle with his mentor, Sherwood Anderson. The scholarly critics are still scratching their heads over this masterpiece.

Big Two-Hearted River

Nick Adams, back home from the war, fishes and eats in a ritualistic manner that suggests he has suffered some sort of psychological trauma that he needs to overcome. But was the problem induced by the barbarism of war or by earlier family-related ordeals?

This is one of a handful of the best short story collections out there. Don't miss it.
