"If a writer of prose knows enough about what he is writing about he may omit things that he knows and the reader, if the writer is writing truly enough, will have a feeling o…f those things as strongly as though the writer had stated them.

There will always be a large debate over what Hemingway's philosophy was. In my personal opinion based on the way he writes, i believe he was a nihilist. The way he wrote, it …almost seems like nothing good ever comes for the characters in his books. I believe this comes from his nihilist beliefs that life has no meaning, and that destiny does not exist. However, all of what I've said is contradicted by his book, The Sun Also Rises. This book is basically about finding meaning in life, and his belief that most humans are doing nothing good with their lives. And those beliefs will fall under the category of existentialism. But again, in my opinion, even though that book was his first great work, i do not believe that it shapes his philosophy as a whole. The argument can also be made that he never intended to take a side as a philosophical writer. Its an easy argument to make that Hemingway was a bitter man and tortured his characters because he was angry that he could never find true love, or that things weren't going the way he would have liked them to go in his life. Its also a fact that Hemingway suffered from hemochromatosis, which is a rare disease, but basically it leaves you with not enough iron in your blood, but lacks the symptoms that hemophilia is known for. This left him severely bipolar. That may have contributed to the depressing style of his writing.
Hemingway cultivated an interest in "manly" sports and activities, perhaps because he felt unsure of his own masculinity. He enjoyed hunting big game, especially dangerous ani…mals like Cape Buffalo and elephants, and was fond of sailing, sports fishing and watching bullfights. An expert on alcohol and cigars, Hemingway also had quite a reputation as a ladies' man.
