Article Response: Ernest HemingwayIt was very interesting to read about the life of Ernest Hemingway. I think it really was a blessing for him to have had the childhood he had within nature for it is not something that everyone can experience these days. It is surprising to me how much Hemingway learned at his time starting from music to track field manager. One thing that surprised me in a slightly negative way was that Hemingway had married several times because he fell in love with another woman other than his current wife and committed suicide later on in his life. The first article that talked about Hemingway's life (The Life of Ernest Hemingway) said that "Hemingway was raised with the conservative Midwestern values of strong religion, hard work, physical fitness and self determination; if one adhered to these parameters, he was taught, he would be ensured of success in whatever field he chose." Though he flourished during his youth, the discipline he was taught did not help him much towards the end of his life.

The Iceberg theory is something I had never thought about before. After reading about Hemingway's Iceberg Theory I have come to admire and appreciate the works of authors that have hidden messages within its stories, even more than before. I now realized how much work needs to be put in into a writing, and how the value of books differ based on the deepness of the knowledge of the author behind the stories.
