  •  Jing Li    


Ernest Hemingway lived in a time full of violence, pain, blood and hostility. He’s well known both for his great works and for his adventures. He was the participant of World Wars I and II, and the Spanish Civil War; victim with hundreds of wounds from these wars; the author of great works and many short stories, and also the spokesman for “The Lost Generation”. Throughout Hemingway’s life, the experiences from various wars and adventures enabled him to witness the bloody battles, violence, life and death of people and provided him with rich sources of writing. Virtually his works and his experiences are inseparable and have been intertwined in many aspects. Looking back through his major works, there is no exception that Hemingway poured his war experiences into his literature works. However, his viewpoints on war were not stable but underwent an ever-changing process.This thesis puts Hemingway into his certain historical time and analyzes the relationship between his protagonists, especially those in his war fictions, and himself. The thesis is also meant to illustrate better how his viewpoints on war are formed and reflected in his fictions.
