Work on the first four volumes (encompassing the years 1908-39) of a twelve-volume scholarly edition of Hemingway's letters. (36 months)

This project will result in the publication by Cambridge University Press of a comprehensive scholarly edition of the estimated 6,000-7,000 letters of Ernest Hemingway, only about ten percent of them ever published. Hemingway's pioneering contributions to American literature made a profound and lasting impact on modern English-language prose style, and his life and work still command enormous popular as well as scholarly interest worldwide. Besides providing new biographical and artistic insights into the achievement of this most influential American writer, the letters constitute a running eyewitness account and cultural history of much of the twentieth century. This edition will be published in twelve volumes over the next fifteen years. We are requesting a three-year funding to see into print volumes 1 and 2, to complete and submit volume 3, and to continue volume 4, together encompassing Hemingway's letters through 1939.
