    Originally privately published in Paris, Three Stories and Ten Poems holds an interesting history. The three stories, “Up in Michigan", “Out of Season”, and “My Old Man”, were first seen in this collection, but “Up in Michigan” was banned and not considered publishable in America until 1938 because of its blatant sexuality. In addition, this original publication of the three stories is all that remains of Hemingway’s early works after his suitcase containing the originals was stolen.

    "Of the place where he had been a boy he had written well enough. As well as he could then." So thought a dying writer in an early version of The Snows of Kilimanjaro. The writer was, of course, Ernest Hemingway. The place was the Michigan of his boyhood, where he remembered himself as Nick Adams. The now-famous "Nick Adams" stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent - a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life.

    Hemingway slog igenom på allvar och blev världsberömd med utgivningen av Farväl till vapnen 1929. Romanen, som beskriver krigets fasa och meningslöshet, bygger på Hemingways egna erfarenheter som ambulansförare vid den italienska fronten under 1. världskriget, där han blev svårt sårad. Kärlekshistorien mellan den frivilliga amerikanska löjtnanten Henry och den engelska sjuksköterskan Cathrine, ett förhållande som slutar tragiskt, spelar dock en central roll i romanen.

    El metodo casi periodistico y descarnado de Hemingway muestra al joven idealista Frederick Henry, quien despues de cumplir como voluntario en el ejercito, se enamora y huye, para encontrarse con dramas incluso superiores a los del campo de batalla. Es una novela llena de significados y con un fondo, que a pesar de su realismo es de un romanticismo digno de los grandes creadores del siglo XIX.

    Novellesamlingen Mænd uden kvinder udkom i 1927 og var Hemingways anden novellesamling. Det er en mandsverden, der skildres. Ligesom hans senere værker er novellerne kendetegnet ved en kort og prægnant skrivestil med en indirekte fremstillinger af følelser, hvor det centrale skal graves frem fra tekstens antydninger. Novellernes temaer er fremmedgørelse, tab og sorg.
