Thoughts on the Ken Burns Hemingway documentary?
I thought it did a pretty good job of illuminating his personality and condition… he was quite a character.
His life and writings were an enormous influence on my generation. The thirst for adventure, rugged individualism and love of nature and the outdoors are things that he brought into focus. Books and stories you didn’t need a college education to understand, yet there was so much underlying depth.
I wished it was twice as long, like some of his novels and short stories.
