Hello,

I am new to the board so please forgive a layman's question.  I have read some of the author's work and would like to delve in deeper.  Can someone please give me a list of what is generally considered Hemingway's ten greatest works?  Thanks for any help offered.

While I'm also a Newbie to this forum, I've been a dedicated fan of Hemingway's life and works for more than fifty years.  May I offer an opinion?

 

In constructing a list of ten "greatest works" by Ernest Hemingway, there would be a certainty of concensus on some.  The problem would come with the ranking as each reviewer has their own favorites for their own reasons.  Since you've already read some of Hemingway's stories, I'd suggest that you now read one or more of the Hemingway biographies that have been published.  That way you can explore the links between Ernest's fiction and the circumstances of his life at the time he was writing each piece.  The five volume biographical set by Michael Reynolds is excellent or you might also consider the biography by Carlos Baker as a starting point.
