Re: AMF Question #5 ~ Sharpened and Clearer

I found Hemingway's statement that Cezanne was "hungry in a different way" interesting and something Hem might have related to. This is part of what I wanted to say, I believe he went purposely to view the work of other starving artists. He could relate to their state of mind and perhaps ...

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #2 ~ Chapter 1

At first I thought it was going to be terribly depressing - all that narrative about overflowing lavatories, rummies and rain. :-? With fortune, I got a lost in his descriptions and then after I became enchanted, remembered that I was reading non-fiction. I am fond of "fictionalized, non-fictio...

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #3 ~ One True Sentence

Thank you, ITZ, for reminding of me of my all-time favorite book too! I must read it again! Your thoughts about condensing writing down to capture what is essential, or 'pure', are well put. I play with writing Haiku, which is a form of poetry that is rather insistant on doing that. I like to expre...

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #3 ~ One True Sentence

Oddly, I wrote about this on Sunday in the reflective journal I keep. I like to write, in fact I love to write. Nefariously, and much to my dismay, I lack the imagination for fiction. I stick to narrative ... it's what I know. :blush: When Hemingway reveals his habit of writing the one true sentence...

Re: A Moveable Feast Question #1 ~ The Preface

I'm going to agree with Buster and Parlez here. Simply because, it absolutely reads as if he is warning us that he will blur the lines of reality and fiction - simply because to him, there is very little difference except in the telling and the "who's telling."

Re: A Moveable Feast Tidbit #9 ~ Ezra Pound.

This has been a particularly interesting tidbit. While reading AMF, my interest had been so piqued by Hemingway's descriptive narrative of Mr. Pound that I looked him up. I have been reading some his work. Regardless of style/method Vorticist or otherwise, his work flows, is interesting and lyrical ...

Re: A Moveable Feast Tidbit #1 ~ The Lost Generation

"Omission can sometimes strengthen the plot of the novel." I "earmarked" that phrase from the book when I first read it - somehow I just knew we would discuss it. I knew he employed that method in his novels and short stories. I am surprised to find this technique employed even i...

Speaking of AMF: I was watching a movie the other night where they quoted Gertrude Stein and I thought to myself "hey, I knew that!"
