Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short story writer, and journalist.
His economical and understated style had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction, while his life of adventure and his public image influenced later generations.
Additional works, including three novels, four short story collections, and three non-fiction works, were published posthumously.
Many of his works are considered classics of American literature. After high school, he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian Front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers.
