Ernest Hemingway
Biographies in Sound, no. 4
This recording opens with clips describing Hemingway and with Marlon Brando reading from "The Old Man and the Sea." The recording continues with a mix of biographical information, anecdotes, and critical appraisals of Hemingway's work. Highlights include excerpts from the Kansas City Star style sheet, parodies of Hemingway's writing and Max Eastman's account of a fight he and Hemingway got into in Max Perkins's scribner's office. The recording ends with a recitation of Hemingway's Nobel Prize acceptance speech. It appears that Hemingway himself reads the speech.
