Course Description:

Ken Burn’s most recent documentary focuses on Hemingway’s long, productive, innovative, and controversial career. Indeed, for more than a century, Hemingway has been a subject of speculation, certainly since the publication of "The Sun Also Rises" in 1926. His life was the stuff of legends; his friendships were rough-edged. His career was uneven and his macho stance was intolerable to many. And yet his chiseled sentences remain as fresh, innovative and suggestive as when he first wrote them. This course will discuss Hemingway’s style, his early career, and his life in Paris in the 1920s. "Texts: In Our Time" (1925) and "The Sun Also Rises" (1926).
