    Where a man feels at home, outside of where he s born, is where he s meant to goErnest HemingwayOnce, when I was 11 or 12, I begged my father to take me Mule deer hunting in Utah Growing up in the West, among a certain strata of boy, the October deer hunt was a sort of blood ritual We would take off from school for a couple days, go into the mountains with our fathers, shoot at things, and come home At this time in my life, I had tremendous blood lust I wanted to bring something down To Where a man feels at home, outside of where...

    The subject of the pursuit is the elusive kudu, an animal you must hunt alone, like writers must write aloneIn Hemingway s experimental work, the Green Hills of Africa, he produces possibly one of the earliest works of creative nonfiction, reveals how the search for good land parallels a writer s search for good material, and most of all, reveals himself warts and all Fitting in, being recognized as an aficionado, or knowing how to be an insider rather than a tourist surfaces as a d The subject of the pursuit i...

    This is non fiction It is about a big game hunting safari taken by Ernest Hemingway and his second wife Pauline Marie Pfeiffer in December 1933 They traveled to East Africa Aided by native trackers, they hunted buffalo, rhinoceros, kudu and sable antelope These were the big attractions of the hunt More important still was who of the hunters would achieve the biggest kill In my eyes, the competition between the men was extremely childish, the hunt itself gruesome and revolting The book is This is non fiction It is about a big game hunting safari taken by Ernest Hemingway and his second wife Pauline Marie Pfeiffer in December 1933 They traveled to East Africa Aided by native trackers, they hunted buffalo, rhinoceros, kudu and sable antelope These were the big attractions of the hunt More important still was who of the hunters would achieve the biggest kill In my eyes, the competition between the men was extremely childish, the hunt itself gruesome and revolting The book is composed of four parts Pursuit and Conversation , Pursuit Remembered , Pursuit and Failure , and Pursuit as Happiness.In the first and second parts, Hemingway expresses his personal views on a number of American and European authors He refers to Mark Twain, Stephen Crane, Sinclair Lewis, James Joyce, Rainer Maria Rilke, Leo Tolstoy, Gustave ...

    Hemingway makes me realize I m a pussy He makes me realize every male human around me is a pussy After reading this book I tried to find Hemingway s masculinity and spirit in every men I know personally and famous ones , and of course the results where dissapointing Then I realized, that EH couldn t live in our era That there exists a symbiotic relationship between EH and the first half of 20th century If you read breifly about Hemingway s life in Wikipedia, you realized his own life is a Hemingway makes me realize I m a pussy He makes me realize every male human around m...

    I do have positive things to say about this book but they are so tragically overshadowed by the negative.Frankly, I found this book boring Perhaps I m not the target audience but Hemingway made an East African hunting safari in 1935 seem unappealing Book Summary Hemingway goes up a hill, looks for kudu, shoots something, his Africans skin it, and he returns to camp and drinks whiskey Rep...

    I have a good life but I must write because if I do not write a certain amount I do not enjoy the rest of my life. I came across The Green Hills of Africa selling for cheap at a used bookstore and since I vaguely remembered that Hemingway s famous quote about Huckleberry Finn came from this book Hemingway thinks it s the alpha and omega of American fiction , I snatched it up Well, that quote is certainly in here It is part of a conversation Hemingway has with an Austrian about literature, w I have a good life but I must write because if I do not write a certain amount I do not enjoy the rest of my life.

    I was ready to not like this book I have had a long term fascination with Spain and had some deeper appreciation of bullfighting so Hemingway s earlier experiment with non fiction, Death in the Afternoon, which reflected so perfectly what Miguel de Unamuno had identified as the Spaniards tragic sense of life, was a strong and intriguing read It certainly prepared me for a Hemingway who could do non fiction creatively But a non fiction book on big game hunting in Africa seemed not my cup I I was ready to not like this ...

    Hemingway can be an irritating son of a bitch and this book is near the top of the here s why list A memoir of Hemingway s hunting expedition to East Africa an area I spent two weeks in recently , Green Hills shows absolutely no awareness of the colonial history that structures the relations between the hunter and the numerous Africans who make his pleasure possible There are a few moments when Hemingway realizes that the men who accompany him are every bit as skilled and courageous as he Hemingway can be an irritating son of a bitch and this book is near the top of the here s why list A memoir of Hemingway s hunting expedition to East Africa an area I spent two weeks in recently , Green Hills shows absolutely no awareness of the colonial history that structures the relations between the hunter and the numerous Africans who make his pleasure possible There are a few moments when Hemingway realizes that the men who accompany him are every bit as skilled and courag...
