Ernest Hemingway

The most intimate and elaborately enhanced addition to the Hemingway Library series: Hemingway’s memoir of his safari across the Serengeti—presented with archival material from the Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Library and with the never-before-published safari journal of Hemingway’s second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer. When it was first published in 1935, The New York Times called Green Hills of Africa, “The best-written story of big-game hunting anywhere,” Hemingway’s evocative account of his safari through East Africa with his wife, Pauline Pfeiffer, captures his fascination with big-game hunting. In examining the grace of the chase and the ferocity of the kill, Hemingway looks inward, seeking to explain the lure of the hunt and the primal undercurrent that comes alive on the plains of Africa. Green Hills of Africa is also an impassioned portrait of the glory of the African landscape and the beauty of a wilderness that was, even then, being threatened by the incursions of man. This new Hemingway Library Edition offers a fresh perspective on Hemingway’s classic travelogue, with a personal foreword by Patrick Hemingway, the author’s sole surviving son, who spent many years as a professional hunter in East Africa; a new introduction by Seán Hemingway, grandson of the author; and, published for the first time in its entirety, the African journal of Hemingway’s wife, Pauline, which offers an intimate glimpse into thoughts and experiences that shaped her husband’s craft.

Ernest Hemingway

"There are some things which cannot be learned quickly, and time, which is all we have, must be paid heavily for their acquiring. They are the very simplest things, and because it takes a man's life to know them the little new that each man gets from life is very costly and the only heritage he has to leave." -- ERNEST HEMINGWAY In the winter of 1933, Ernest Hemingway and his wife Pauline set out on a two-month safari in the big-game country of East Africa, camping out on the great Serengeti Plain at the foot of magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. "I had quite a trip," the author told his friend Philip Percival, with characteristic understatement. Green Hills of Africa is Hemingway's account of that expedition, of what it taught him about Africa and himself. Richly evocative of the region's natural beauty, tremendously alive to its character, culture, and customs, and pregnant with a hard-won wisdom gained from the extraordinary situations it describes, it is widely held to be one of the twentieth century's classic travelogues.

ABOUT THE BOOK The Green Hills of Africa was written by renowned writer Ernest Hemingway between November 1933 and March 1934 while he was on safari in Africa. The story retells Hemingways experiences while hunting in the East Africa Tanzania region with his wife. The work is non-fiction and describes the difficulty and enjoyment to be had from big game hunting against the exotic and strange backdrop of the African countryside. The book is divided into four parts: Pursuit and Conversation, Pursuit Remembered, Pursuit and Failure, and, Pursuit as Happiness, each documenting a specific experience of the hunt. MEET THE AUTHOR Ashley Somogyi is an experienced writer and a member of the Hyperink Team, which works hard to bring you high-quality, engaging, fun content. Happy reading! EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK The Green Hills of Africa is an autobiographical story documenting Hemingways emotions, sites, and experiences as he trekked through the wilds of southeastern Africa in search of rare and challenging game. The opening scene describes Hemingways quiet frustration and nonchalant attitude when a truck drives by and frightens off the kudu he is hunting. This singular scene shows the anticipation, failure, and dry emotions that are expressed throughout the book. Defeated, Hemingway returns to camp and on the way meets Kandisky, who frightened the kudu. Kadinsky joins Hemingways party and it seems that the two will get on quite well, sharing similar tastes in literature and opinion, but the more questions Kandisky asks, the more he wears on Hemingways nerves.

Ernest Hemingway

As Verdes Colinas de África divide-se em quatro partes: “caça e conversa”, “caça recordada”, “caça e derrota”, e “caça e felicidade”. A história que se conta nestes quatro segmentos é a de três caçadas com êxito ao leão, ao búfalo e ao rinoceronte, e a de uma longa caçada, apenas em parte bem sucedida, ao antílope. Para quem pensa que Hemingway era uma pessoa incapaz de auto-crítica, o livro será uma revelação. Hemingway, o escritor, escrutina aqui as complexas motivações de Hemingway, a personagem, e não hesita em criticar este último por quase ter estragado todo o prazer de uma aventura excepcional, com o seu desejo infantil de provar que é melhor caçador do que o seu amigo Karl. Os leitores a quem a história de uma caçada em África não interessa de forma muito especial têm de qualquer maneira boas razões para ler As Verdes Colinas de África. Muito em particular por causa do segmento “caça e conversa”, onde Hemingway analisa, com uma candura e uma profundidade fora do comum, a sua vida de escritor.
