Inhaltsangabe: 'Across The River And Into The Trees' by the American writer Ernest Hemingway was published in serials in Cosmopolitan magazine by Charles Scribner's Sons in September 1950. The magazine serialized the novel from February to June 1950 in five installments. The title is derived from the last words of Confederate General Thomas J. Stonewall Jackson and the novel's central theme is death and how the death is faced. There is a parallel between Hemingway's novel, 'Across the River and Into the Trees' and Thomas Mann's book, 'Death in Venice'. The story is built upon successive layers of symbolism and Hemingway employs his distinctive spare style, the iceberg theory, where the substance lies below the surface of the plot. He wrote it in Italy, Cuba and France, and later, met his friend A. E. Hotchner in 1948. Hotchner was recently released from the Air Force and he had taken a job with Cosmopolitan Magazine as a commissioned agent. When he saw Hemingway's name on the list of authors he was to contact, he went to Cuba, asked for a meeting, and when Hemingway took him to a bar, he requested for a short article. Hemingway did not write an article, but he submitted his next novel 'Across the River and into the Trees' to Hotchner. The protagonist of the novel is based on Hemingway's friend Charles T. Lanham. The novel was published by Scribner's on 7 September 1950 with a first edition print run of 75,000, after a publicity campaign that hailed the novel as Hemingway's first book since the publication of his 1940 Spanish Civil War novel For Whom the Bell Tolls. Ernest Hemingway was born in Oak Park on June 21' 1899 and was the second child of Dr. Clarence Hemingway and Grace Hall Hemingway. His mother, Grace, dressed him in girl's clothes up to the age of six when his long girl like hair was first trimmed. Earnest studied in Oak Park High School and River Forest High school and proved to be one of the best students. he graduated in 1917. After graduating from high school, he took a job as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star newspaper in 1917, and later during the First World War, he joined US Army as an ambulance driver in 1918. Though he was badly injured in field during catering the supplies, he bravely helped and saved by dragging the wounded Italian soldiers to safe zone for which he was awarded Silver Medal the Italian government. During his WW-I service, he fell in love with Agnes von Kurowsky, an army nurse who was six years elder to him. Between WW-I and WW-II, Ernest his following books were published: "Three Stories and Ten Poems" (1923); "In Our Time" (1924); "The Torrents of Spring" (1926); "The Sun Also Rises" (1926); "Men Without Women" (1927); "A Farewell to Arms" (1929); Death in the Afternoon" (1932); "Winner Take Nothing" (1933); "The Green Hills of Africa" (1935); "To Have and Have Not" (1937); "The Fifth Column" (1938); "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (1940). Hemingway married four times and had extramarital relationships with at least two other women which was important to understand the acuteness of life to become a successful author. Dorothy Sayers, HG Wells, CS Lawrence, Elizabeth Von Arnim, and so on and so forth, all successful authors had multiple sexual relationships. He was awarded with Pulitzer Prize for 'The Old Man and The Sea' in 1953 and Nobel Prize in literature in 1954. In April 1961, in Ketchum, Mary "found Hemingway holding a shotgun". She called Saviers who sedated him and admitted him to the Sun Valley hospital; from there he was sent to the Mayo Clinic for more electro shock treatments. He was released in late June and arrived home in Ketchum on June 30. In the early morning of July 2, 1961, Hemingway "quite deliberately" shot himself with his favorite shotgun. Mary called the Sun Valley Hospital, and a doctor quickly arrived at the house. Despite his finding that Hemingway "had died of a self-inflicted wound to the head", the story told to the press was that the death had been "accidental".
Inhaltsangabe: Set in Venice at the close of World War II, Across the River and into the Trees is the bittersweet story of a middle-aged American colonel, scarred by war and in failing health, who finds love with a young Italian countess at the very moment when his life is becoming a physical hardship to him. It is a love so overpowering and spontaneous that it revitalizes the man's spirit and encourages him to dream of a future, even though he knows that there can be no hope for long. Spanning a matter of hours, Across the River and into the Trees is tender and moving, yet tragic in the inexorable shadow of what must come.
