That terrible mood of depression of whether it's any good or not is what is known as The Artist's Reward.

Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. Organizations for writers palliate the writer's loneliness, but I doubt if they improve his writing. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates. For he does his work alone and if he is a good enough writer he must face eternity, or the lack of it, each day.

You see it's awfully hard to talk or write about your own stuff because if it is any good you yourself know about how good it is—but if you say so yourself you feel like a shit.

They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.

I had a lot of enjoyment teaching Hemingway's novel 'The Old Man and the Sea' to junior classes in high schools. 'Man is not made for defeat'. They remembered the theme.

I like Hemingway's blunt writing style. like in this poem: '' The only man I ever loved Said good bye And went away He was killed in Picardy On a sunny day. '' - Hemingway simply states: '' He was killed in Picardy ''.. In these few verse, he shows all the bluntness of death... '' On a sunny day ''.. ______________________ - my translation into ITALIAN: L'unico uomo che abbia mai amato Disse addio E se ne andò. Venne ucciso in Picardia In una giornata di sole.

The poem Killed Paive – July 8,1918 is about Hemingway’s terrible war experience: he was wounded by a mortar shell that day. He was actually the first American wounded on the Italian front, a few weeks before his 19th birthday. Killed Paive – July 8,1918 Desire and All the sweet pulsing aches And gentle hurtings That were you, Are gone into the sullen dark. Now in the night you come unsmiling To lie with me A dull, cold, rigid bayonet On my hot-swollen, throbbing soul. __________________________ “I go to the front tomorrow, ” the 18-year-old Hemingway wrote home on a postcard from Milan, dated June 9,1918. Wounded seriously in a mortar explosion one month later, he was treated at the American Red Cross Hospital in Milan. (“P.S. Don’t worry, Pop, ” ends one hospital-bed letter home) . These are among the experiences that helped shape his World War I novel, 'A Farewell to Arms'. (source: Penn State archives) .
