13-Year Research Collaboration Explores Untapped Hemingway & The Hemingway Bibliography
In the fall of 2009, four University of St. Thomas English students, their professor, and a librarian met in a far corner of O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library to begin what would become a 13-year collaboration creating an annotated bibliography on the life and art of the most celebrated American author of the 20th century: Ernest Hemingway.
Acclaimed for having written such classics as A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls, Hemingway is also famous for just being Hemingway, said English professor Kelli Larson, who led the project. Some 60 years after his death, the man who drove an ambulance on the Italian front in World War I, hunted big game in Africa, chased Nazi submarines in the Caribbean, and then wrote of his globe-trotting adventures continues to capture the minds and imaginations of readers around the world.
Hundreds of articles, books, blogs and reviews appear annually on Hemingway, and now, they’re searchable across the globe via St. Thomas’ recently launched annotated bibliography on the author.
