Synopsis: An assemblage of reflections on the nature of writing and the writer from one the greatest American writers of the twentieth century.

Throughout Hemingway?s career as a writer, he maintained that it was bad luck to talk about writing?that it takes off ?whatever butterflies have on their wings and the arrangement of hawk?s feathers if you show it or talk about it.?

Despite this belief, by the end of his life he had done just what he intended not to do. In his novels and stories, in letters to editors, friends, fellow artists, and critics, in interviews and in commissioned articles on the subject, Hemingway wrote often about writing. And he wrote as well and as incisively about the subject as any writer who ever lived?
