The preparation for print publication of volumes 2-4 of a projected 16-volume edition of American author Ernest Hemingway's complete letters. (36 months)

This project will result in the publication by Cambridge University Press of a comprehensive scholarly edition of the some 6,000 surviving letters of Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961), about 85% previously unpublished. Winner of the 1954 Nobel Prize for Literature, Hemingway made a profound impact on modern prose. 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. The Cambridge Edition of The Letters of Ernest Hemingway will be published in 16 volumes over approximately the next twenty years. Volume 1 (1907-1922) was published in September 2011. The Project is requesting 3-year funding (October 2012-September 2015) to complete and publish volumes 2, 3, and 4, encompassing Hemingway's letters from 1923 through 1932.
