With his death in Idaho in 1961, American author Earnest Hemingway left behind a bibliography attributed at ten novels, ten collections of stories, and some fifteen works of non fiction. Scores of stage plays, film adaptations, and television productions are also attributed to the writer.
Recently, having worked with New York-based Social Science Research Council
, Cuba began accepting requests for electronic copies of Hemingway's works and related materials. Over 3,000 documents from Hemingway's home at Finca Vigia, near Havana, where Hemingway lived from 1939 until 1960.
While the list of works does not include any previously unreleased literary works, about 1,000 additional documents will become available in two future phases. MSNBC reports
that the collection includes maps, clippings, and letters.
Heningway was born in Oak Park Illinois in 1899. He died by suicide in 1961 in Ketchum, Idaho. The writer lived for a time in Toronto, Canada, and wrote as a foreign correspondent from Paris. Hemingway eventually lived in Key West, Florida, and moved later to the Bahamas before settling in Cuba. His beloved yacht, the El Pilar, now rests at Finca Vigia.
