    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'.

Best Poem of Ernest Hemingway

Along With Youth

A porcupine skin,
Stiff with bad tanning,
It must have ended somewhere.
Stuffed horned owl
Yellow eyed;
Chuck-wills-widow on a biased twig
Sooted with dust.
Piles of old magazines,
Drawers of boy's letters
And the line of love
They must have ended somewhere.
Yesterday's Tribune is gone
Along with youth
And the canoe that went to pieces on the beach
The year of the big storm
When the hotel burned down
At Seney, Michigan.
