The Letters of Ernest Hemingway, Volume 5, spanning 1932 through May 1934, traces the completion and publication of Death in the Afternoon and Winner Take Nothing. During this intensely active period, Hemingway hunts in Arkansas and Wyoming, fishes the waters off Key West and Cuba, revisits Madrid and Paris, and undertakes a long-anticipated African safari. He witnesses transitions at home and abroad: the deepening Great Depression, Prohibition-era rumrunning, revolution in Cuba, and political unrest in Spain. His readership and celebrity continue to expand as he begins writing for the new men's magazine Esquire. As the volume ends, Hemingway has just acquired his beloved boat, Pilar. The letters detail these events as well as his relationships with his family, friends, publishers, critics and literary contemporaries including editor Maxwell Perkins, Archibald MacLeish, John Dos Passos, Ezra Pound, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Together the letters paint an intimate self-portrait of this multi-faceted, self-confident, energetic artist in his prime.
'Cambridge and the editors have produced a 'damned good', magisterial work on one of the most complicated and skilful writers in English, and scholars and book lovers will eagerly await the twelve or more volumes to come.' Austin Long, The Review of English Studies

Another excellent volumeGranskad i USA den 20 juni 2020
I've been ordering these since the 1st volume was announced. Each edition gets better and better. Thank you so much to the editors/team that works on this project. I love the footnotes and being able to deep-dive into things and gain a better understanding of what each letter means. It's so fascinating to see what was on his mind as he was writing his books and living his life. These volumes are for Hemingway fans, both amateur and the scholarly. It's easy and accessible, just like the master himself.

Hemingway often lamented that while he could write fiction, he could not write letters. This volume shows how wrong he was. These are not polished letters by any means, but they’re alive with humor, anger, sarcasm, gossip, and all the things that comprised Hemingway’s forceful personality. I’ve read each volume in the series as it came out, and I look forward to the rest.
