Ernest Miller Hemingway was an American writer and journalist, and a member of the "Lost Generation." His writing is characterized by economy and understatement; his protagonists usually men who exhibit an ideal described as "grace under pressure." Considered classics of American literature, many of his works had a significant influence on the development of twentieth-century fiction. Hemingway received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 and the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. This film uses contemporary drawings and paintings, portraits, maps, and other archival material to describe the social and historical background of his writing.
