Form and Function of Paris Representation in Hemingway’s "A Moveable Feast" by Olga Nikitina Summary

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Bonn, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: A Moveable Feast deals with the years 1921 to 1926 spent by Hemingway as a young man at the beginning of his literary carrier in Paris. He started to write it in 1958 and it actually remained unfinished when he committed suicide in 1961. Taking into account the fact that at that time Hemingway had already written all his best books, that in 1953 he was awarded The Pulitzer Prize and in 1954 - the Nobel Prize for Literature, one could suppose that the book was written by a successful and confident author who looked back at his young years with a gentle smile (sort of "how it all started") probably not without nostalgia. But if one takes a closer look at Hemingway's biography one finds out that the Paris book was being written by the "the rapidly ageing Ernest" [Svoboda, p.159] in the midst of health problems and family pressure, probably foreseeing the end of his literary career, suffering from continuous depressions and paranoia. Add to all this repercussions of the two plane crashes which he survived and the loss of the mother, Pauline Hemingway and his close friend and editor Charles Scribner and you will be able to imagine (probably quite remotely) what Hemingway's state of mind really was while he was writing the book in question. What could be the message of the book written under such circumstances - at the top of the literary career and facing the gap of despair? Was it an attempt to explain to himself what he had done wrong with his life, to calculate what had been lost and what had been gained during Paris years or to prove that in spite of increasing difficulties with writing he is still a great writer? Was he trying to show what had made him the kind of writer he was and (as he desperately hoped) still kept him on the top or was he simply recollecting the old happy times in order to f

Paris ne finit jamais by Enrique Vila-Matas Summary

À l’occasion d’une conférence sur l’ironie intitulée “Paris ne finit jamais”, un écrivain décide de revenir sur ses jeunes années passées à Paris, au cours desquelles, logé par Marguerite Duras, il a fait ses classes de littérature. Obsédé par l’ombre tutélaire d’Ernest Hemingway, s’y inscrivant en négatif, il revient sur ces années de déambulation dans les rues de la capitale, de doute, d’abîme. Avec ce roman en forme de miroir, Enrique Vila-Matas s’inscrit dans la lignée des écrivains exilés, interroge la création, la difficulté à inventer encore lorsque tout a déjà été écrit, et décortique l’ambition qui fabrique un artiste.

Paris e uma festa [A Moveable Feast] by Ernest Hemingway Summary

Paris é uma Festa encontra-se na linha da melhor tradição de Hemingway. A visão a um tempo lúcida e desencantada da vida, ombreando paradoxalmente com a confiança e a plenitude dos anos de criação, o retrato objetivo de muitos dos grandes escritores da nossa época que, como ele, respiravam no ar de Paris o melhor estímulo de aprendizagem e formação, a evocação dessa cidade incomparável, com os seus bistros, os seus velhos castanheiros, os cais, os boulevards, as pontes, imprimem a Paris é uma Festa um lirismo saudoso e pungentemente dramático. Aí encontramos o jovem Hem, no começo de uma carreira que se ignorava se terminaria na ignomínia ou na glória. Aí o encontramos, de algibeiras vazias e a cabeça povoada de sonhos, atento aos mais simples prazeres da vida. Aí o encontramos, ainda moço e rebelde, pronto a invadir o mundo e a sacudi-lo com os abalos da sua rebeldia genial.

Ernest Hemingway's a Moveable Feast by John J. Botta, Jr. Summary

Bush's first year in office begins by describing Inauguration Day festivities, speeches, Oval Office actions, Bush and Cheney staff appointments, Cabinet positions, ambassadorships et al. After initial actions, Bush s nationwide tour to enlist support for his agenda and lavish Cinco de Mayo celebration at the White House to curry Hispanic votes are related. Jefford's defection and loss of Senate control to Democrats, passage of the $1.35 trillion tax cut over ten years and "unchanged, revisionist" curricula in education, plans for more military base closings, ABM shield, JSF and experimental planes, drones, hi-speed computers, inane USS Greenville and spy plane incidents are discussed. To his credit, "unilateralist, exceptionalist" Bush rejected the '72 Treaty and the Kyoto Protocol. Topics that went nowhere included Medicare, prescription drugs, Social Security, campaign finance reform faith-based social services, Mid-East peace, energy and federal judicial appointments. Limited movement occurred with stem cell research, Americans with Disabilities Act and environment. One world Bush's relentless, shameless pursuit of the Hispanic vote along with Fox's boorish behavior, lack of border control, disgraceful legalization of "illegal immigrant lawbreakers" and push for FTAA and "fast track" despite growing trade deficits, loss of U. S. manufacturing and hi-pay jobs are detailed. After the September 11th terrorists attacks, Bush opportunistically placed his stalled legislative agenda "on hold," focused as "wartime president," got even by mercilessly bombing air defenseless, archaic Afghanistan, haven for Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida amid a domestic anthrax scare. Great Britain was aggressively involved; however, other "allies" offered moral support, fly over permission, other token gestures and use of bases for money or U. S. protection. Victories at Mazur-e-Sharif, Kunduz, Kabul and Kandahar, destruction of al-Qaida terrorist training camps, removal of the Taliban from power, installation of a provisional government, declaration of victory although "PR plums" bin Laden and Omar remained free, flip flop Bush's plan to "rebuild Afghanistan," pursuit of al-Qaida terrorists worldwide and "cajoling a flimsy coalition" amid Arab-Muslim reluctance perhaps for assault against daddy's old nemesis Iraq are described. Brief airing of the new budget, state of the union, Enron and author's comments and suggestions complete coverage.

A Moveable Feast of Murder by Agata Stanford Summary

"It was only natural that I should be nervous-all right, I panicked; after all, my Uncle Martin went down with the Titanic. A February blizzard was raging fury over the East Coast as the S.S. Roosevelt was being tugged out of the harbor at Hoboken toward open seas. I shook from trepidation as I stood out on the open deck of the ship this midnight, the flurry of thick flakes, a disappointing substitution for confetti, changing to hard, biting pellets of mean sleet." Thus begins Dorothy Parker's real-life 1926 trans-Atlantic crossing to France with Robert Benchley and Ernest Hemingway. Soon, there is more to worry about than whether the ship will hit any icebergs. The question is: Who is trying to kill Mr. Benchley? And once arrived in Paris, why is the City of Lights, famous for its Jazz Age clubs and cafes, so full of Soviet spies and kidnappers? Join Parker, Benchley, and their friends, Ernest Hemingway, Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, and the sensational American expatriates, Sara and Gerald Murphy, for dinner at Michaud's, drinks at Bricktop's, the floorshow at the Moulin Rouge, and an adventure of murder and international intrigue in the Paris of 1926."

Paris, ein Fest fürs Leben by Ernest Hemingway Summary

Als Hemingway 1956 nach Paris zurückkehrte, ließ er sich aus dem Keller des Hotels Ritz seine alten Koffer bringen. Sie enthielten Tagebücher und Aufzeichnungen aus den Zwanzigern, seiner Zeit als Auslandskorrespondent. Aus diesen frühen Notizen formte Hemingway den Roman seiner Pariser Jahre. Für ihn war es eine glückliche, prägende Zeit, als er an der Seine angelte, bescheidene Gewinne beim Pferderennen in Champagner umsetzte, mit Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, Ezra Pound und F. Scott Fitzgerald zusammentraf. Hemingways letztes Buch führt zu seinen Anfängen zurück: Es ist eine Feier des Lebens und des Schreibens, ein Erinnerungsbuch voll jugendlicher Kraft und melancholischem Humor, das nun, neu übersetzt, erstmals in der vom Autor hinterlassenen Fassung vorliegt. «Das ist bester Hemingway; niemand hat das Paris der zwanziger Jahre eindrucksvoller beschrieben als er.» (The New York Times) «Vom Glück, vom reinen, kindlichen Glück handelt dieses Buch, und es teilt sich jedem Leser mit, der mit dem jungen Autor in einem noch nicht fashionablen Viertel aufwacht, wenn die Sonne die nassen Fassaden der Häuser trocknet.» (Süddeutsche Zeitung) «Dieses Buch ist nicht nur ein herausragendes literarisches Werk, sondern auch ein Schlüsseltext zur Kulturgeschichte der Moderne. Das legendäre Paris der zwanziger Jahre ist in dieser Prosa wie in klaren Bernstein gebannt. Und es ist ein grandioses Porträt des Künstlers als junger Mann.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung)
