Despite his controversial status both then and now, Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) and his innovative writing style and larger-than-life persona have left an indelible mark on modern literature. Through his ‘no holds barred’ approach to writing and life, he showed that “the best people possess a feeling for beauty, the courage to take risks, the discipline to tell the truth, the capacity for sacrifice. Ironically, their virtues make them vulnerable; they are often wounded, sometimes destroyed.” Come and meet Hemingway – “the Man, the Myth, the Legend” – and decide for yourself whether he was more sinner than saint, or an all too real combination of both.
