Ernest Hemingway is one of the most influential and fascinating writers of the 20th Century (also one of the most popular to emulate on McSweeneys). Documentarians Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s latest documentary, Hemingway, about the life of author Ernest Hemingway, is a three-part, six-hour look at the author of such novels as For Whom The Bell Tolls, The Old Man and the Sea, and A Farewell to Arms.
The first episode of the documentary, entitled “The Writer (1899-1929),” will cover Hemingway’s early life, including his involvement in World War I, volunteering with the Red Cross, and his time in Paris, which was spent with other authors and artists like Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, and Pablo Picasso. Episode 2 is called “The Avatar (1929-1944)” and it covers his tumultuous marriage to Pauline Pfeiffer and his move to Key West. The third and final episode, “The Blank Page (1944-1961)” details Hemingway’s coverage of World War II, publication of The Old Man and the Sea, and his final marriage, to Mary Welsh.
