Happy Birthday, EMH!

On this day in 1899, Ernest Miller Hemingway was born. I celebrate because learning about his life has enabled me to make many new friends in the past 3 years. Thank you, Ernest! I am still learning about EMH and am excited to hear about the newest publication:

Edited by: Sandra Spanier, Pennsylvania State University
Edited by: Robert W. Trogdon, Kent State University, Ohio

Apparently, there are going to be 16 volumes and this is the first.

Reading EMH’s personal writing in Letters from the Lost Generation: Gerald and Sara Murphy and Friends edited by Linda Patterson Miller sparked my curiosity to want to learn about more him and his life. I have learned so much in the past 3 years, and cannot wait to discover even more about the life of this interesting, talented writer.

    From starting this blog (due to EMH) I have met some wonderful other bloggers. One is moving here soon with her husband (style blogger), one is visiting Dallas on business and I can’t wait to show him the DMA (yes, it’s Ennyman at http://www.pioneerproductions.blogspot.com) and another I am going to see at a Hemingway symposium in Idaho in October!!

    As Alexander Smith once noted, “If a man is worth knowing at all, he is worth knowing well.”

    I had the privilege of participating in a number of courses based on “Letters from the Lost Generation” and taught by Professor Linda Patterson Miller and am glad to have stumbled upon your blog; she is a truly brilliant scholar without being even slightly ostentatious. I believe she still teaches at Penn State Abington.

    Jerry, Thank you so much for your comments! I actually met Ms. Miller when she came to Dallas to speak at the art museum when they had an exhibit about Gerald and Sara Murphy as she had just written an essay for the exhibition guide entitled Making it New: The Art and Style of Sara and Gerald Murphy. She was very personable and I can’t wait to maybe see her again in June at the Hemingway conference to be held in Petoskey, MI. You were very lucky to have been in one of her classes on the Lost Generation!

    If you got to the top left of the blog and do a search on “Hemingway” you can read quite a number of posts involving Hemingway that I have done in the past, before and after this particular posting.

    Thanks again for reading and please keep in touch!

    Sincerely, Denise
