Ernest Miller Hemingway was a renowned American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He termed his understated, economical writing style as the the iceberg theory—which left behind an indelible impression on the 20th Century fiction. The iceberg theory or the theory of omission refers to avoid going into the details and adopting a minimalistic approach in writing. He also displayed adventurous lifestyle and a public image that earned him many admirers from the next generation.

He was born on July 21, 1899, at Oak Park, Illinois, U.S. His parents were Clarence Edmonds Hemingway, a physician, and Grace Hall Hemingway, a musician. After finishing his high school, he joined as a reporter for a few months for The Kansas City Star before leaving for the Italian Front to enlist as an ambulance driver in World War I. He returned home in 1918 after getting seriously wounded. He wrote his novel A Farewell to Arms (1929) based on his wartime experiences.

He married Hadley Richardson in 1921 and got divorced in 1927, followed by his marriage to Pauline Pfeiffer which ended in a divorce in 1940. Martha Gellhorn was his third wife in 1940 and divorced her in 1945. He finally married Mary Welsh in 1946.

He won the The Nobel Prize in Literature, 1954, for his book, The Old Man and The sea, for which he also won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 along with his drama, Picnic.

He owned houses in Key West, Florida (in the 1930s) and in Cuba (in the 1940s and 1950s).He nearly escaped from death in 1954 after the successive plane crashes that left him in pain and ill health for the rest of his life. He moved to a new house that he had bought in 1959 in Ketchum, Idaho, where he died on July 2, 1961 (aged 61). He had committed suicide.

His works are so exemplary and popular in the history of American literature that they have been adapted into movies like The Old Man and the Sea, For Whom the Bell Tolls, A Farewell to Arms, The Sun Also Rises and so on.
