Pieces of m thoughts

Ernest Hemingway – The Iceberg Storyteller – #BlogchatterA2Z

Ernest HemingwayWe need to take a flight back to the USA to pay our respect to this fabulous storyteller. Many of his works are considered as classics of English literature. Nobel laureate Hemingway is a fabulous storyteller who has mastered the craft of telling a story in very simple language, most of his writing is in simple sentences. He has developed a style of describing one thing through entirely different thing which occurs below the surface. Hemingway himself calls this style as an Iceberg Theory (also called a theory of omission). Hemingway liked to tell the story through subtexts, he will not describe the action in a straightforward way, but he will write the things happening around the action so that reader will understand it anyway while reading the story.

You will find a lot of this Iceberg writing in the storybook I am bringing to you as a part of my TBR. I want to read The Nick Adams Stories which is a collection volume of Hemingway’s 24 stories featuring Nick Adams. Though it is published in a single volume a decade after Hemingway’s death, the majority of the stories are previously published in various collections, there are 8 of them which are unpublished before this volume came out in 1972. The book is divided into 5 sections namely “Northern Woods”, “On His Own”, “War”, “Soldier Home” and “Company of Two”.

I reckon these sections will be based on the time in which the stories are written as Nick Adams is partly autobiographical character developed by Hemingway based on the experiences he had when he was serving in Red Cross Ambulance Core in World War 1. The collection spans throughout his writing carrier as it includes some of his earliest stories like “Indian Camp” as well as his best one “Big Two-Hearted River”

It is difficult to get the print copy here in India at a lower price. One available on Amazon is for Rs. 821/-. I am still looking for it in various libraries in the city if I can get my hands on it. I am eager to dive into this classic as it will unfold the entire lifespan of the character as well as Mr. Iceberg Author. Hope you will like the book too.

  1. I first met Earnest Hemingway via renowned Marathi author “Pu La”. “Eka Koliyane” is the translation of Hemingway’s “Old Man and Sea” by Pu La which I had read long back. Many years later, I read the original one.
    Simply superb writing style…so very engaging and engrossing.

    Essay from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies – Literature, grade: 2,0, University of Tubingen (Seminar für Englische Philologie), course: Proseminar, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Hemingway once said: “If it is any use to know it, I always try to write on the principle of the iceberg. There are seven-eights of it under water for every part that shows. Anything you know you can eliminate and it only strengthens your iceberg. It is the part that doesn’t show. If a writer omits something because he does not know it then there is a hole in the story.”
    Hemingway tended to not tell the reader about how the characters in his stories feel or think.
    He lets the reader develop his own ideas about the background or intentions of the characters. This Essay will show and compare the use of this theory in two of Hemingway’s short stories, “Hills Like White Elephants” and “The Killers”.
