Primeiro publicado em 1926, The Torrents of Spring é uma divertida paródia da escola de literatura de Chicago. Dançando com aquela "ótima corrida" de escritores, mostra uma moda que o próprio Hemingway se recusou a seguir. Com estilo e substância, The Torrents of Spring é um burlesco do Riso das Trevas de Sherwood Anderson, mas no decorrer da narrativa, outras tendências literárias associadas a escritores americanos e britânicos, como Anderson, como DH Lawrence, James Joyce e John Dos Passos - venha para um comentário satírico. Uma história altamente divertida, The Torrents of Spring oferece um vislumbre raro na carreira inicial de Hemingway como contador de histórias e estilista.
Ernest Hemingway did more to change the style of English prose than any other writer of his time. Publication of The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell to Arms immediately established Hemingway as one of the greatest literary lights of the twentieth century. His classic novel TheOld Man and the Sea won the Pulitzer Prize in 1953. Hemingway was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. His life and accomplishments are explored in-depth in the PBS documentary film from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Hemingway. Known for his larger-than-life personality and his passions for bullfighting, fishing, and big-game hunting, he died in Ketchum, Idaho on July 2, 1961.
