"Ernest Hemingway Biography."The Site for Fans of Papa's Work. Web. 29 Nov. 2010.<." target=_blank>>.In 1928, Hemingway's father, Clarence, troubled with diabetes and financial instabilities, committedsuicide using an old Civil War pistol.This greatly hurt Hemingway and is perhaps played out through Robert Jordan's father's suicide in thenovelFor Whom the Bell Tolls.He immediately traveled to Oak Park to arrange the funeral and stirred up controversy by vocalising whathe thought to be the Catholic view, that suicides go to hell.At about the same time, Harry Crosby, founder of the Black Sun Press and a friend of Hemingway fromhis days in Paris, also committed suicide.BEACH, JOSEPHWARREN. “Style inFor Whom the Bell Tolls.” InErnest Hemingway: A Critique of Four Major Novels.

Nobelprize.org. 29 Nov 2010Hemingway evolved his style in the herd school of journalistic reporting. In the editorial office of the Kansas Citynewspaper where he served his apprenticeship, there was a kind of pressman's catechism, the first dictum of whichwas: «Use short sentences. Use short paragraphs.» Hemingway's purely technical training clearly led to an artisticself-discipline of uncommon strength. Rhetoric, he has said, is merely the blue sparks from the dynamo. His master inolder American literature was Mark Twain inHuckleberry Finn, with its rhythmical stream of direct and unconventionalnarrative prose.The young journalist from Illinois was flung headlong into the First World War when he volunteered to serve as anambulance driver in Italy, where he received his baptism of fire at the Piave front and was severely wounded by shellsplinters. The nineteen-year-old's first violent experience of war is an essential factor in Hemingway's biography. Notthat he was daunted by it; on the contrary, he found that it was a priceless asset for a writer to see war at first hand -like Tolstoy at Sevastopol - and to be able to depict it truthfully.
