Hemingway Society member Mark Ott is seeking innovative and challenging
essays addressing the topic of "Ernest Hemingway and the Geography of
Memory" for a book he is interested in editing.

Michigan, Italy, Spain, Paris, Africa, Key West and Bimini are some of
the most distinctive places in the Hemingway oeuvre; in short fiction,
novels, journalism and correspondence, Hemingway revisited these sites,
and transforming them into texts such as _In Our Time_, _A Farewell to
Arms_, _The Sun Also Rises_, _Green Hills of Africa_, _To Have and Have
Not_, _A Moveable Feast_ and _Islands in the Stream_. For this volume,
I am seeking essays that explore how Hemingway used the lens of memory
to reshape and transform seascape, landscape, events and people. The
past was always
Hemingway's imaginative fuel; this proposed volume welcomes a variety
of approaches and premises shedding new light on Hemingway's complex,
idealized, and romanticized uses of his memory.

Please send a hard copy of your completed 15-20 pp. essay (along with a
disk) to:
