Episode description: During his lifetime, Ernest Hemingway was as well known as any movie star—a dashing international figure who challenged the notion that writers exist in an ivory tower. The battles, bullfights, big game, and booze he took on in real life were channeled into stark prose that created a new form of expression, describing action and emotion in simple, authentic terms. And now, more than 40 years after his death, he is still one of the most widely read, and widely written about, American authors. Kate Burton narrates a re-examination of the author's life that is based on the works themselves—the written word and the art of Hemingway's storytelling. [cc]
