This book provides fresh evidence suggesting that Ernest Hemingway’s high school education contributed considerably more to his development as a mature writer than has thus far been known. The author makes use of his own research and a collection of Hemingway's high school writing never before published. Adding his findings to the previously available information, the author reassesses the development of Hemingway as a writer. This book contains twenty-eight black and white photographs and six pages of facsimiles.
