When I discovered Hemingway's work back in my high school days, I was amazed at how much I enjoyed it. I read as many of the short stories as I could find. Later on I read the novels. The Sun Also Rises is probably my favorite. By the time I reached grad school, Hemingway was falling out of fashion. Too macho for the times, or something like that. Having left BTA (big-time academia) long ago, I don't know if his rep has recovered. I hope it has. When he was good, he was about as good as they come.
