Ernest Hemingway: Between Two Wars at The Morgan Library & Museum, September 25, 2015 – January 31, 2016

“The exhibition explores the most dynamic period of Hemingway’s creative life, from 1918 to the aftermath of World War II, and his recurrent theme of confronting the fullness of life—and the finality of death—with grace and courage. Utilizing almost one hundred rarely exhibited manuscripts and letters, photographs, drafts and typescripts of stories, first editions, and artifacts from the author’s life, the exhibition reveals the man behind the myth, his struggles and triumphs.” — The Morgan Library

“The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places.” — Ernest Hemingway
