 Hemingway Home & Museum in Key West, Florida, USA (美国南端的海明威故居)

Last night, I scanned through ‘American Literature’ (2 volumes) (《美国语文 – 美国著名中学课文精选》) to look for introduction for Henry David Thoreau, since I have been reading a collection of essays by Thoreau, ‘The Art of Walking’ (《心灵漫步》). After I read two short excerpts from Thoreau’s ‘Walden’ and ‘Civil Disobedience’, I started looking for Ernest Hemingway’s introduction.  There, I found out in the section about World War I.  There is only one excerpt from Hemingway’s ‘In Another Country’.  Iif asked, the only work I can remember is Hemingway’s ‘The Old Man and the Sea’. A college friend introduced the book to me long time ago.  The old fisherman was his idol at the time.

From my limited reading, ‘The Old Man and the Sea’ is the book standing out.  This leads to my visit to Hemingway Home & Museum twice.  I am planning another family trip to Florida this Christmas, including a visit to Hemingway Home & Museum again. I am going to have a chance to verify my impression. 

From my previous visits, the first impression is the house is large, and there were many cats lazily lying around. There is a courtyard in the middle, surrounding by rooms in 2 stories.  Balconies on the second floor looking into the yards was made of wood. I tried very hard to image that Hemingway typed his manuscript in one of rooms with windows opened so cool air could blow in; Hemingway caressed his cats in the yard under the shade of the large trees;  Hemingway smoked his pipe and looking up the sky;…

Now, it’s so convenient to look for images of Hemingway Home & Museum.  But I think I will re-check the place by my own eyes again on my next visit in Dec.  I think it’d be more interesting to see how everything evolves, including me.
