We will begin by discussing Hemingway’s classic memoir of his early life in Paris in the 1920s, A Moveable Feast. Next we will read The Paris Wife, a well-researched historical novel in which Paula McLain tells the story of Hemingway’s first marriage from his wife Hadley’s point of view. We’ll follow up with The Sun Also Rises, the “quintessential novel of the Lost Generation” that Hemingway was writing during the time period covered in The Paris Wife. Our discussions will focus not only on the biographical details of the Hemingways’ marriage, and their adventures in Paris and Spain but on Hemingway’s growth and development as a writer; and on the literary qualities that have made Hemingway widely regarded as one of the most influential English language writers of the twentieth century. Four Fridays: May 7, (Skipping May 14), 21, 28, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. EST Online Class
