#4667 - 03/09/06 05:14 AM WAR: source of great Writing?

Now i know itīs sounding a little bizarre, coming from an austrian and all that but I am reading GREEN HILLS OF AFRICA and our favorite journalist-turned-novellist is ranting considerable amounts of text about the merits of War and why every writer needs one to write really well. War teaches Writers, H. says. Is that true? And the best War ever is a Civil War. Why is that so? Why was War so important for Hemingway?

You americans are knee deep in one. Maybe soon enough you will be in a Civil War too. How does it effect your writing? Are you covering the War somehow?

Of course the role of War isnīt the only comment about Writing in GREEN HILLS OF AFRICA. There is a beautiful interview between Kadinsky, an austrian, and Hemingway. Hemingway says many interesting things to Kadinsky. In return Kadinsky sings and dances and is very polite to Hemingway. Ah, we austrians! Always meeting the interesting people!

PS: Even then the austrians made the very best desserts of butter! Even then!!
