Ernest Hemingway wrote many, many stories in his lifetime. His first great novel was actually the second published, but after that his career became a great success. There are many different books by Ernest Hemingway that you can read when you want to get a taste of this great American author.
Hemingway wrote many novels, nonfiction pieces, plays, collections, and edited anthologies during his time as a writer in America. It all started with a very well-known book simply titled The Sun Also Rises, which was a reflection of Hemingway’s own experiences in Spain the year prior.
Ernest Hemingway also had many of his works published posthumously. After his death, more than a handful of different works were released by others, and were quite a success. Some were not as successful as others, however.
When it comes to books by Ernest Hemingway, he is most known for writing three of his works: The Sun Also Rises, In Our Time, and The Old Man and the Sea. His other works were beloved by followers and enthusiasts, but were not nearly as popular as these three titles, which took on a sense of Americana, if you will.
First published was Torrents of Spring, just months before the first book made it to the publisher. Some other books by Ernest Hemingway include:
- A Farewell to Arms
- To Have and Have Not
- For Whom the Bell Tolls
- Across the River and Into the Trees
- The Old Man and the Sea
- Islands in the Stream
- In Our Time
- The Snows of Kilimanjaro
- The Nick Adams Stories
Hemingway lived from 1899 to 1961, and in his lifetime he actually accomplished quite a bit in terms of becoming a successful author. Today, his books are part of mandatory reading for high school and college students around the world.
You can find books by Ernest Hemingway in any library or bookstore, no matter which types of books you are looking for.
