The First Forty-Nine Stories book. From Ernest Hemingway's Preface: 'There are many kinds of stories in this book. I hope you will find some that you like- In going where you have to go, and doing what you have to do, and seeing what you have to see, you dull and blunt the instrument you write with. But I would rather have it bent and dulled and know I had to put it on the grindstone and hammer it into From Ernest Hemingway's Preface: 'There are many kinds of stories in this book.

The First Forty-Nine Stories. In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years

The First Forty-Nine Stories. Ernest Hemingway witnessed many of the seminal conflicts of the twentieth century, and he recorded them with matchless power. In the fall of 1948, Ernest Hemingway made his first extended visit to Italy in thirty years. His reacquaintance with Venice, a city he loved, provided the inspiration for Across the River and into the Trees, the story of Richard Cantwell, a war-ravaged A. By-Line: Selected Articles and Dispatches of Four Decades.

I had never read Hemingway before, thinking his books are for sporting men - in another word, boring for this city girly . The core of this three-part collection is "The First Forty-nine", a compilation of stories that Hemingway selected and published in 1938.

I had recently read Paris Wife, and picked up this collection of short stories to see about Hemingway's books for myself. I was completely taken aback by his storytelling and his writing style. Such clean, crisp flow of words and not a word overused or wasted.

Some were wonderful and some were no more than an afterthought. But...it's Hemingway, how can you resist. You can see the bones for some of his famous novels in a few of these short stories.I liked those the best.Several were very gorey & visceral (literally) and if you re an animal lover, very upsetting.
The beautifully written, but uninteresting ones make you realize how hard writing a best seller really is

What more can be said about Ernest Hemingway? I enjoy his clear writing style and engaging characters. My husband and I were traveling to Key West and wanted to read some Hemingway before we visited the Hemingway museum, but I’m not great at getting through novels quickly so this book was an accessible way for me to read some of his works before our trip.
It is a little bulky and the pages are thin - but that is to be expected for a complete works - I did decide to leave it at home for our trip though. This book isn’t something you will sit down and read straight through unless you are a major Hemingway fan. I suspect one might get bored if they try since Hemingway tends to stick to the same themes over and over again. However, it will be great to pick up and read a few stories every now and again.
I got this book used, and it was in the condition described - I’m completely satisfied with my purchase and am glad to have this one on my shelf!

Hemingway is a master of putting you not only in the physical space of the story (what it looks, sounds, smells, tastes like) but also lulling your emotions to the required state. His stories tend to be "slice of life" narratives and with no moral takeaways, simply the experience of being there.

The book contains 70 stories ranging from 2-30 pages. Most are in the 5-10 page range.

Like many, I love reading Hemingway. I was a little hesitant to pay the cost of this collection of stories, but after reading it I love it. This is a collectible book, with a nice binding and hardcover. It has some stories displayed with several versions of the same story, with pencil lines through sections he scratched out. It provides a fascinating look into the mind of one of the truly great writers. Viewing the way he edited and rewrote stories as he tweaked and polished them, makes me admire Hemingway all the more, seeing what a true craftsman he was. I've read that he worked very hard at his writing, and this book gives us all a peak into that world he worked within, molding and shaping his stories to create what we have come to know of his works. I love this book.

I read Hemingway's longer stuff in me yout'. Didn't care for it much. Read this when I was much older, and liked it a lot. Revisited three of his novels, and was impressed at how much better they were. :-) But he still might be better as a short-story guy. This is a bit uneven, but an excellent read.

To know Hemingway, the man, his short stories are a means to an entrance to his muse. In many of the stories he was rough and rugged, but out of nowhere comes a story of a woman who wants a cat abandoned in the rain. Bullfighters and soldiers offer insights to his experiences. He doesn't always bring a story full circle; he just ends abruptly. Yet, the story has not ended. A reader will contemplate all the possibilities of what did and what will happen as a consequence of the story as well as the thoughts and desires of the character(s). Love and sex are difficulties where his mind and desires are not in sync, but he follows the desires perhaps to the detriment of the partner. Read them all and know the man, direct and cruel and caring.

I had never read Hemingway before, thinking his books are for sporting men - in another word, boring for this city girly girl. I had recently read Paris Wife, and picked up this collection of short stories to see about Hemingway's books for myself. I was completely taken aback by his storytelling and his writing style. Such clean, crisp flow of words and not a word overused or wasted. And yet such spare writing can impart such depth of feeling and emotional punch. After reading his story about trout fishing, I could not believe how such a story can be so thrilling, enthralling and exciting. I found myself holding my breath and startling others with sharp intakes of breath while reading these stories. There is something magical, supernatural about how the sentences are put together in such order, almost linear, so that such economical writing is also so full of perception. Such good stories.
