unique style
of writing. (Brown 571)

ambulance driver
during World War I. (Jones 416) Only a few days before he
would
turn twenty years old, Hemingway was wounded in the leg
and sent

In 1921, the Toronto Star sent Hemingway to Europe as a
journalist writer. While in Paris he published two books. The
Sun

(Brown 571)
Hemingway loved to experience nature. He loved adventure;
and
enjoyed hunting, fishing, and watching bullfights. These
adventurous experiences helped shape his style of writing.
Young
writers later copied this style. They also copied his style of
writing in short and direct sentences. (Brown 571)
Hemingway looked at life as a game. He shaped literature
into
writing about how mankind is eventually totally defeated. He
has
been put down for writing about how men are always tough
and not
be afraid of danger. Hemingway became depressed during
the last years of his life, and shot and killed himself in 1961. (Jones
