If you know me well then you know how deeply I’m in love with Big Papa , Ernest Hemingway..He represents many essence and memories in my life ..
One is of my father , who was similar in his poetic ways, and just like E.H masculine with a masculine view of life! Yet my dad unlike Hemingway loved animals ( Ernest did in his ways of the old days of thunder) and later changed..My father was in love with my mother and Ernest at last found love..
it was ” The old man and The sea ” and my father’s persistence of his love to the story and his own resemblance that brought me to KeyWest! KeyWest is my solace and in few weeks I will be heading there to be with Papa , the cats, the tall trees , the blue pool, his chairs ……And to sit in the infamous patio by the pool and write for hours in my poetry book..
These images are reminders of Summer..and ” The Dangerous Summer ” by E.H..where Hemingway went to Spain searching for youth and found mortality and madness.
He lived all his life with his own mano a mano between nonfiction and fiction, primarily believing that fiction was supreme. He told George Plimpton that ”you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough, you give it immortality.”
The Dangerous Summer is a nonfiction book by Ernest Hemingway published posthumously in 1985 and written in 1959 and 1960. The book describes the rivalry between bullfighters Luis Miguel Dominguín and his brother-in-law, Antonio Ordóñez, during the “dangerous summer” of 1959. It has been cited as Hemingway’s last book.
