Relation between Ernest Hemingway and Spain

By: Instituto Hemingway
Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961) was born in Oak Park, Illinois, and started his career as a writer in a newspaper office at the early age of seventeen. During the First World War he joined a volunteer army unit in Italy. When he returned to the United States he worked in Chicago as a reporter for Canadian and American newspapers. In 1936, Hemingway traveled to Spain to report on the Civil War going on in the country at this time. As many writers he supported the cause of the Loyalist. He used his experience as a reporter during the Spanish Civil War when he wrote his most prominent novel, For Whom the Bell Tolls. The work is based on real events and reveals the story of an American Robert Jordan who fights Spanish soldiers on the Republican side. Hemingway dedicated his outstanding work to his third wife, a Spanish journalist, Martha Gelhorn, whose devotion and desire to travel inspired him.
Ernest Hemingway once referred to Spain in a letter as “the last good country left”. One can definitely see that his Spain is, in fact, a quite enchanting place.
Through the Spanish language courses and cultural activities Instituto Hemingway aims at offering a broader exploration of the Spanish culture. Just like the American author Earnest Hemingway has shown his own fascination of Spain, the school would like to give the chance to everyone to discover the many aspects of the Spanish culture and create their own Spanish experience.
