Library Exhibition Celebrates Hemingway Centennial
Posted December 14, 1999; 09:18 a.m.
A centennial exhibition on Ernest Hemingway , entitled "'one true sentence': Hemingway and the Art of Fiction," opens October 4th in the Main Exhibition Gallery of Firestone Library at Princeton University. The exhibition focuses on the Nobel Prize-winning author's fiction and his thoughts on the art of writing, not the hunting, fishing, bullfighting, and war reporting exploits that often claimed the headlines and contributed to making him an icon, unique in American literary history. Black-and-white enlargements of photographs from his life form the background on the gallery walls to exhibition cases that capture the full color of all of Hemingway's novels and collections of stories.
