A LATER CLASSIC FROM AMERICA’S PREMIER FICTION WRITER

First published in 1970, nine years after Hemingway’s death, this is the story of an artist and adventurer — a man much like Hemingway himself. Beginning in the 1930s, Islands in the Stream follows the fortunes of Thomas Hudson, from his experiences as a painter on the Gulf Stream island of Bimini through his antisubmarine activities off the coast of Cuba during World War II. Hemingway is at his mature best in this beguiling tale.

This book was originally intended to revive Hemingway’s reputation after the negative reviews of Across the River and Into the Trees.

He began writing it in 1950 and advanced greatly through 1951. Mary Hemingway found this work, rough but seemingly finished, among 332 works Hemingway left behind at his death. Islands in the Stream, was meant to encompass three stories to illustrate different stages in the life of its main character, Thomas Hudson. The three different parts of the novel were originally to be titled “The Sea When Young”, “The Sea When Absent” and “The Sea in Being”. These titles were changed, however, into what are now its three parts: “Bimini”, “Cuba”, and “At Sea” Cube has only one chapter. I have divided it into 3 disk-length parts.

Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer in the 20th century, and for his efforts he was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature in 1954. Hemingway wrote in short, declarative sentences and was known for his tough, terse prose. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Ernest Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the 20th century.

As part of the expatriate community in 1920s Paris, the former journalist and World War I ambulance driver began a career that lead to international fame. Hemingway was an aficionado of bullfighting and big-game hunting, and his main protagonists were always men and women of courage and conviction who suffered unseen scars, both physical and emotional. He covered the Spanish Civil War, portraying it in fiction in his brilliant novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, and he subsequently covered World War II. His classic novella The Old Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. He died in 1961.
