Ken Burns on America, Selling His First Film and More
"This Independence day, we turned to a man who tells the story of America in her glory and struggle for unity. Ken Burns. Documentaries range from the Civil War to baseball, country music, and this year's Ernest Hemingway. As we first told you last fall, Burns calls himself an emotional archaeologist. He excavates lost love letters, forgotten photos and overlooked heroes. Research so deep viewers can feel like strangers discovering America For the first time, his films ask what it means to be American. So we asked What does it mean to be Ken Burns? Have had the privilege of spending my entire life making films about the U. S. Capital U Capital s, But I've also had the privilege of making films about us. The two letter lower case plural pronoun that has a kind of intimacy and warmth to it in the country Music film Merle Haggard says. Country music is about those things we believe in but can't see like dreams and songs and souls. It's telling us that there is in front of us are kind of Rational world in which one in one always equals two, but that the thing that compels us forward as human beings is that we look for one and one Equalling three. We find that in our faith, we find that in our art we find that in our love of each other, and I think one of the things I discovered working on country music is that When I understood this dynamic between the US and us lowercase uppercase that I realized there's only us know them. The choice was easy because us the Americans struggle to forge union from diversity has been Ken Burns obsession since he was 11 years old at the end of this lane in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

"Age of colin infant. An all in all these things will be nice to have a new hemingway ca somehow captured for us the spirit of make sense which is what he does with. The sun also rises. We were talking earlier about the book. Everybody has badly. Which i think is a terrific. Leslie terrific buck. Highly recommended what. I'm intrigued worth when you look at. All of that is was at the moment was an entire population. Sorta was waiting for somebody like hemingway to capture for them their own thoughts and it's a combination of the topics but also this new writing style which cuts through what had been the classic american literary genre to that point when you look back on that. Are you surprised. How gigantic and impacted. It's hard to say. Because i can't imagine american literature or literature of world war one without the sun also rises. It is so important and yet it's not even directly about the war. It's about the generation. Like sarah was saying and how people were damaged by this scale of loss and trauma that they had all gone through. And how do you keep on living. How do you keep on finding meaning in life. And it's such an unusual way to approach it for that time. I think it's very idiosyncratic. It's very particular to the circumstances he was in and the people he knew and the things he saw what he was interested in. So it's hard to even imagine. I think it had a huge impact on his life. That's for sure and it also was away that he showed and leslie bloom. Shows the so beautifully in her book he was willing and eager to use any everything his disposal to tell the story. He wanted to tell even at the expense of people who had really helped him and good friends that he portrayed in the book and not terribly positive. Light especially herald loeb. Who was a good friend of his and it helped him in his career and then was portrayed in the novel has robert cohn who sort of an anti hero or the villain of the story and a lot of ways and so. Hemingway didn't care he wanted to tell his story and he would take whatever he could around him to make great literature. And there's a price to pay for that and that's so your depression that he was a dangerous friend very much so very interesting very exciting but also like being next to ally him. He could bite you at any moment. So that and he was driven by hemingway. He wasn't driven very externally in that sense. The other part of that though is that hemingway also seems to me. And i'd be curious because you've been so immersed in this the clean simple short narrative model that he developed where the senses are easy to understand is driving. Momentum sorta paves the way for dashiell hammett and others see an entire american genre of a kind of clean storytelling. That's profoundly different from what went before does that fit as you look at his impact on writing and his impact on would be authors of the future. We did a series of conversations about hemingway with different experts and writers and people who had perspective and one of the people who join us. Those rachel kushner. Who's a novelist in la in her forties or fifties and to read her. You might not necessarily see the echoes of hemingway per se. And she said she thought. Her generation wasn't directly influenced by hemingway. But they were influenced by the generation that came before that was directly influenced by way so in a sense. His fingerprints are his. Dna is passing through many removed. And i think someone writing one hundred years from now will be influenced by hemingway but they may not really realize it. it's unavoidable even with six hours. Which is a remarkable documentary. Builder owen person. You must have left really interesting things on the cutting floor i guess nowadays digits. We don't actually cut anything anymore. This is a leftover from the age of film. But i'm curious. What do you think is the biggest thing you regret. Not having been able to include good question. I mean we always say that the stuff that's on the cutting room floor virtual or not is never bad stuff. It's just i mean. Ken is famous for saying this. It's too many notes. Just one too many threads for our audience to follow you. Know one of the challenges of the film. I would say is that so much of hemingway's greatest work was done in the first decade of his writing career. I would say from his early time in paris through the farewell to arms or even into the early thirties. And so we could have made six hours just on that because there's so much to explore and so in particular. The short stories has first rate burst of short stories and those are often overlooked because the novels we tend to value novels over short stories as markers of literary genius or whatever but there are many short stories that we were not able to delve into deeply in particular. I have my favorite. Which is soldiers home. I think is an extraordinary work about a young man coming home from world war one and trying to reintegrate into society after all kinds of horrific experiences and ending really not being able to do that. Fam- understanding him her. It's a beautiful story. It's very short. We don't open up and tell you about that short story and that i wish we could have done. You may not be allowed to answer this question. But i'm curious now that you have this great achievement heading to your list of great achievement. You have a notion yet of what the next one is. Aria lynn cannon. I are making a film about the. Us response to the holocaust looking at what our country knew when we knew it and what we did about it in relationship to the immigration and refugee crisis that we are still feeling the effects of so that film will come out in twenty twenty three. It's another six hour. Look at that time. ken is working on many projects. Another one that. I am directly working on is a big series where making on the american revolution. So that's a very interesting time to be doing. That and lynn is working on a big series on the history of crime and punishment. You made the book or you mean the process. Now the history. Right crime and punishment in america so the book is fascinating novel but this is really going back to the earliest european presence here up through the american revolution and the penitentiary system and then all the way up to mass incarceration and beyond over twenty years in prison reform. Very important topic. We're grateful you for that and we actually want to say. Sarah together made a film. Two years ago. That came out called college behind bars. Enough you've heard about it. But it was exploration of men and women in prison enrolled in and really remarkable college program called the bard prison initiative so they earn college degrees and they experienced the transformative power of education. And the film opens with a starting moby dick and then it goes on from there to linear algebra and mandarin and advance economics. These are incarcerated men and women are marginalized communities who are some of our most brilliant scholars that you could possibly imagine so we and we very much aware of your very important work on criminal justice reform lemay shown to both of you. As each of these new projects comes to fruition. If you'd be willing to come back and talk about a we'd love to have you come because it's absolutely fascinating you you do world classwork so it's always a great tribute. I feel great being in your presence in knowing how hard you to have worked and cans work to build this entire genre of material would love to so thank you very very much for joining us. Thank you for having us. It's been a pleasure. Thank you so much as a great conversation. Nobody concerned about san. Thanks for joining me today.

"Was very expensive and they had a beautiful home and he had many objects that were really meaningful to him there and they have friends and a whole life a staff also and they walked out not knowing they weren't coming home not really sure what the political situation would be and so the contrast between those two places thinking about ernest hemingway at different stages of his life the house and catch him was never meant to be a permanent residences for you know kind of life they were lead so it was sort of a temporary haven that turned into his last stop and one of the many ironies of hemingway's life is that he painted his own father as a coward for having committed suicide and yet he would eventually take his own life and certainly it sounds like there were warning warning signs there he talked about suicide all the time even demonstrated how he would do it in front of his friends. Even doctors were rather derelict in their duties to prevent him from self-harm how come no one spoke up or staged an intervention. or or would you Where people say that they get their blocked knocked off if they tried to intervene against ernest. Hemingway there there is a dark dark side to celebrity and one of them is the free pass They get not just with the medical profession. But with everybody. I i'm having drinks ernest. Hemingway 'em over for dinner ernest hemingway's my pal. We'd been out on his boat. And i think if you combine that with the stigma van about mental illness and the inability of a wife to be able to have the confidence to intervene or him to even be able to accept a dynamic or a dimension of himself that required help for mental issues. You this is a terrible terrible combination of things and so You as much as the outward stuff is denigrating the father for that. he's he's constantly thinking about it and he's thinking about it before his father killed himself and it it's a it's a unfortunately add something that ran through a lot of members of that family in that in that nuclear family and then in subsequent generations Mental illness and. So i think it's it's weighing on him. It's a monkey on his back and one way is to make fun of it. I mean this is what hemingway does about a lot of things. One way is to try to see it as he does in his magnificent work so it's not so easy to dismiss. You know he can. He can denigrate the father in one way say as a coward hate his mother saying you drove father to do this but if you look at the way in which his father is a figure in his particularly the early stories but then later he emerges in the climax of a firm the bell tolls He's he's very much alive. And so i that that the ghost of his father the idea of his father. The gift and love of his father is present all the time. And it's it's two binary to sort of say you know. He criticized his dad for taking the suicide way out but he did it himself. The these are pathologies that we can't hope to understand. But it's super important. That flynn and i..

"Very very close onerous is like a polite word albatross. You know to have to be that person. And i always when we working on the film in thinking about you know the places that he tried to work in focus and do this quiet internal interior processes of writing. He had to have material to write about so he would go out into the world. Had these big adventures and come back and write about them but it was always noticing the world around him and paying close attention to help people talk and what they wore in what they ate Now how the flowers looked on the trees. Just you know who's aware of everything. But when he became the center of attention and everyone's looking at him and he's the center of everything that's going on sort of wonder. How could he do that kind of work and play that part at the same time in the simple answer is he couldn't right. I mean he begins to fail himself both literally. But i think more importantly humanly. We're the beneficiaries of the good stuff and we point out that there's not so good stuff for mediocre stuff for great by any other standard but not ernest hemingway standard. But i think the real tragedy is of course in the way in which that as well as all of the demons that are involved mental illness of concussions of ptsd of being jilted Family dynamics Alcoholism some sort of psychosis of some sort medicating that alcoholism all of these things were. Just a An impossible cocktail no pun intended of of a horrors by the end of his life. Yeah and one of the ways that this documentary gets to sort of the deeper truth of hemingway is actually through the women in his life. And i found that to be such a fascinating and revealing window into the man i mean for all the bravado and hype a wife or partner always sees the man for who he is and calls him out on his bs and you could almost divide the chapters in hemingway's and career by the women he was with at the time talk a little about the influence of his four wives and his lovers physically on his life and is riding. Yeah we Jeff ward wonderful writer. Who wrote a script. When he was working on the film came to us and said you know the this is how we're going to organize the story around the relationships in his life. I his mother and his sisters the nurse who broke his heart and boudoir one and then the four women that he married among many other and filarial relationships as well and through how he behaves with them through the connections they find through the ways those relationships fall apart and his role in that his way of explaining that to himself into the world. You get an intimate look at this man. As ken was saying of ball and complicated and sensitive man who women were drawn to. There's no question you know. We hear that over and over again..

And that you know as you said the thought. I'm going to die here. I think i'm going to die. Is the kind of experience that some people not all people but some people do go on to develop post traumatic stress disorder know that for example he and i think his story. Now i lay me. He talks about the fears of going to sleep in. Ptsd that is a major symptom that flashbacks and nightmares and night terrors that have to do with experiences and that causes a fear of going to sleep and of course we also know that unfortunately he really started drinking heavily in the setting. This is sort of the first. I guess evidence. We have a really heavy drinking like basically bunches of empty cognac bottles found under the bed and we also know that this is the first time a time of many i that he he probably falls in love with a nurse. There he did. He fell in love with agnes lawn. Care hausky who was a nurse there. He thought she was older than he was beginning. A pattern for the rest of his life of liking older women always his wives. Were all there and this early. This nurse was a year older year and a half older. It was in his adolescence.

He contacted an italian american club in chicago and they would have raucous meetings together and somehow ernest got his parents to give two different huge. Dinners for these.

A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion
"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality
"ernest hemingway" Discussed on When in Spain
"Madrid because Ernest Hemingway had a lifelong love affair with the Spanish capital and many locations around Madrid inspired his writing in particular The Sun Also Rises death in the afternoon. And for how long The Bell Tolls which was inspired by his experiences working as a reporter and journalist during the Civil War in Spain and joining me in this episode to pick up Trace Hemingway's footsteps around Madrid and widest pain as well is Steven Drake Jones now Stephen is a historian lecture and tour guide who has an encyclopedic knowledge of numerous periods of Spanish history, but it's also an expert on Ernest Hemingway's Madrid. And in fact, he runs an Ernest Hemingway tour of Madrid among many other tools that he's also the chairman of the Willington society which he sets up and why wild because the Duke of Wellington is his speciality, especially the. Covering the bank of Wellington's campaigns on the Iberian Peninsula. We're not going to be talking about the Duke of Wellington in this episode. We're going to be talking about Ernest Hemingway, but a bit more about Stephen Stephen moved to Spain in nineteen years. 75 he taught English and he subsequently joined the Spanish Navy curiously. He didn't go to see though. He joined the Spanish Navy in the capacity as a history lecturer and an English teacher off and then he continued to lecture in history here in Madrid at numerous different universities and I met up with Stephen in one of Ernest Hemingway's favorite Madrid Hangouts, and it's called thought of etheria al-amana the German beer house, which is on the leafy platter Santana right in the Centre of Madrid. I'm sure many of you who've been to Madrid no place for Santana Moss may have even been to the state of Alabama and we pulled up a couple of chairs inside at the exact table in the bars window where Ernest Hemingway often used to come and sit down and drink and write and fraternize with the bullfighting Community which used to hang out there less. So nowadays, but back in Hemingway's times the wage Service was a hub of the bullfighting Community bullfighters journalists who wrote about anyone connected with bullfighting would spend time in the third of a thirty-year Allen mom. Now, you might not be a fan of bullfighting. And nor am I to be honest, but we're not going to be talking all about bullfighting in this episode, but it would be remiss not to say that Ernest Hemingway was a huge bull fighting off fan and it was actually in the third of etheria al-amana where he gleaned a lot of information for his book death in the afternoon, which is all about bullfighting thing. It's a nonfiction work really you can always look at it as a kind of guide to bullfighting and it was in the set of etheria Hannah Montana where Ernest Hemingway wrote the appendix to death in the afternoon because he used to pick the brains of the bullfighting fraternity there. I'm looking for specific vocabulary that would help describe the very specific parts of a bullfight home. Karida, we're going to be talking about that and lots more about Hemingway's relationship to Madrid and the time that he spent here. But before we throw ourselves into the interview with Stephen Drake Jones, I will just run through a list of Ernest Hemingway's Works, which relates specifically to Madrid and to Spain. I've only read one of them. I hasten to admit and the other thing I would like to quickly do before the interview is a special shout-out that I always do two new when in Spain patrons, so a special shout-out and muchas gracias to new when in Spain patronage Jennifer now, I'm apologize for my pronunciation of your surname Jennifer and we had a quick chat on the wedding Spain Instagram account, but I didn't ask you how to pronounce your name b l e at a new blush or blusher blade.

It's a crowdfunding website called Patron and you can find when in Spain on there to patreon.com forward slash when in Spain and off the page and it's all very self-explanatory about how you go about supporting this podcast. Anyway enough of that. So Ernest Hemingway or Don Ernesto actually as he was known affectionately by the Spanish spent numerous students in Madrid. In fact, he was here for chunks of the late nineteen twenties late nineteen-thirties and also parts of the nineteen fifties before his last visit in nineteen sixty as many of you may well already know Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid twenties and the mid fifties and in fact, he won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction wage. In nineteen fifty-three and the Nobel Prize in literature in 1954 know I guess we could say that Ernest Hemingway's a bit of a sort of controversial character is not like you either love him or loathe him a bit of a love-hate relationship going on here from lots of people that I've spoke to about Hemingway's some people say it was not really a very nice guy. Well, I don't know read his books make up your own minds and one thing is for sure is that Hemingway was a person of personas I suppose and that you could perceive him as being rain a bit shallow may be entitled wage, but he wrote about these things in Spain from a kind of very privileged point of view. We see Hemingway as a bullfighter. We see him as a brooding Kathy Wilburn dweller surrounded by wine bottles. We see him as a blooded War veteran hard-drinking hard fighting hard loving all in the name of his art of writing and I guess yep. His life additional personas attached themselves to him. We see him as a rugged deep sea fisherman Big Game Hunter post-war Liberator and the later in his life is a white beard Papa as it was known in his native us and he relished all of these identities and I think so did his fans and so did the Press. Anyway, let's look at some of his works that relates specifically to Madrid and indeed Spain in nineteen twenty-six. He writes The Sun Also Rises and which was translated in Spanish as Fiesta. And this is a novel about a group of expats living in Paris that decides to visit Pamplona during the Festival of Sanford mean the famous running of the bulls and it's a Loosely autobiographical account which talks about how Hemmingway came to enjoy the July festivities in Pamplona during the 1920s while he was stationed in Paris in 1932. He published his death in the afternoon, which was just talking about a nonfiction book about the art page. How many and traditions of Spanish bullfighting and it also kind of delve deeper into the human nature and looking at fear and courage, that's the only Hemingway book that I've read. I enjoyed it gave me a really interesting insight into bullfighting and I'm not a fan of bullfighting in nineteen thirty-eight. He publishes. Well really his lesser-known work called the fifth column and this is a place which is set during the Spanish Civil War and its main significance is that it was a work about the war published while the Spanish Civil War was still going on and the title helped popularize this term fifth column and the fifth column was coined by one of Franco's generals Emilio mola to refer to any clandestine group of people who work from the inside to help an outside force over of a throw a besieged city..

"Would you look at that. Thought had lost these to his past provided some refuge at least eastern work although Ernest and Mary left Cuba behind for good in nineteen sixty ernest was able to craft and manipulate his old journal entries into the definitive memoir of the lost generation. A moveable feast yet. Even this seems like a victory lap of sorts. He would never publish another novel in his lifetime. The permanently relocated located to his rural land in Ketchum Idaho but like his father before him concerns over money and overdue taxes along with more out there. Theories regarding government surveillance wants drove hemingway deeper into depression in January nineteen sixty-one Mary Checked Ernest into the Mayo Clinic. Under a pseudonym where he received as many his fifteen rounds of electroconvulsive therapy three months passed as Mary kept close watch on her husband's declining state ernest. Where have you gotten to ernest own my Lord Ernest? Please Darling put that down. It's closing in now. Mary my whole life is wrapping around me like a shell. I can't can't see anything anymore. Wouldn't wouldn't the hell. Am I supposed to write. If I can't even see you don't have to write not anymore. We can live the rest of our lives together here or anywhere anywhere you need to go please. But put the gun down here. Please just drink a little. Put Down The gun taste the same as always Mary. What is there left to discover after all whom I fully? Mary was able to sedate hemingway that morning and he returned to Mayo further treatment. He was released yet again. A few months later in July Mary we had moved all of his guns to the basement but two days after his return ernest arose before the dawn and retrieved his favorite shotgun on July the second one thousand nine hundred sixty one ernest. Hemingway ended his own life early. Press coverage clouded the true cause of death calling it an accidental death. It took five years for Mary to admit to the press that her husband had committed suicide later. Research into the Hemingway family has shown there may have been a shared genetic disorder known as his haemochromatosis that broke down both body and mind over time in five generations of the Hemingway family line for generations contained members who killed themselves along with his father Ernest sister brother and much later. Granddaughter took their own lives. Tragic Mark in their collective story this inability to reckon with death and the lifespan of the body plagued ernest hemingway throughout his entire life though it also pushed him to find a new way to illustrate the very depths of the human soul. His work rarely ended happily. His characters rarely found remedy for their sick souls yet. The dog pursuit of meaning of redemption option or most simply of love was the secret fuel for his writing. It was never an obsession with masculinity or dominating women or conquering enemies which drove Rove Hemingway forward. It was a search for some truth in our loud crowded increasingly violent modern times his Nobel prize acceptance speech sent by mail to be read aloud as if by a ghost focused in on his life's true craft the impossible struggle of honesty in anyone's life. Writing at its best is a lonely life. Organizations for writers Paleikud the writers loneliness but I doubt if they even improve his writing. It grows in public stature. As he sheds loneliness and often as work deteriorates free does his work alone. And if he's a good enough writer he he must face eternity or the lack of it each day if nothing else Ernest Hemingway face down his days and revealed as much as any writer possibly could about our collective personal human eternity.

The greatest minds of this lost generation and fostered an artistic culture that would resonate for decades. It's it was during these years as argued with Ezra pound drank with James Joyce and studied under Gertrude. Stein that Hemingway's signature style came into existence stance. Hemingway himself later described it as the iceberg or theory of omission instead of diving deep into the emotions the romantics or or engaging in deep psychological deconstruction of characters hemingway brought his journalistic skill of brevity to the page by saying the absolute bare minimum about out characters and crafting simple description of setting and plot. Hemingway believed he could focus the reader's attention onto filling out the outlines themselves so basically Gli. He believed that by showing as little as possible. The audience would actually be able to perceive the emotional enormity of esteems stories to give them a spiny sense for detecting protecting the full iceberg. That is human existence. Hemingway style perfectly sinked with the modernistic artistic movement of time putting together the transatlantic antic review with Ezra pound and others. Hemingway began releasing his short stories. His first story Indian camp was about a boy forced to watch his father. Perform an emergency agency c-section on a native American woman themes of death life and women were already at the forefront of his mind. The modernist audience responded very well so so much. So that after befriending F Scott Fitzgerald who had just found great success with the Great Gatsby. Hemingway decided that a novel was also his next mountain to climb on his professional. Life was not the only thing influx Hadley was a lively companion for Ernest in these European days and they would often travel with friends is to pimp blown a Spain for the festivity of the bullfights they had their first child in nineteen. twenty-three named John Hadley Nick Noor.

This initial dispute dispute evolved into a decade-long scandal regarding who truly coined the term loss generation young vain and arrogant and his new-found dominance of the local scene. Hemingway was happy to claim it for himself in front of the press and as he wrapped up work on his first novel the Sun also rises inspired by Hadley and his travels to Pamplona and channeling the weariness and Philistine nature of the loss generation. Hemingway found a stronger source of support from a friend named Pauline pfeiffer. We're Hadley Hadley hoped. Ernest would be more selective and cautious in his choice of publisher. Pauline thought the novel needed to be released as soon as possible. So earnest took the first offer given to him followed quickly by a divorce. Order from Hadley.

It contained many elements considered scandalous for the time it detailed the excessive lifestyle of the lost generation. They're drinking partying and sex in fact. The novel drew criticism from his own friends as hemingway had clearly based the characters and their dirty little secrets on people. Well he knew Hemingway's mother was not a fan either hoping he would go back to the less sensationalist pursuit of journalism. Yeah on the world. Stage it struck a modernist dischord critic Henry.

The man who single-handedly developed the dominant style of Twentieth Century American literature the man who made it to both world wars without even being a soldier the man who constantly constantly strove to outdo himself to perfection simplicity to return America to its naturalist roots. There we go over elaborating keep it simple stupid internist. Hemingway lived as he did to defy death and in many ways he might have succeeded in eighteen ninety nine Ernest Miller. Hemingway was born in an Affluent neighborhood called Oak Park right outside of Chicago. A true twentieth century. Life was ahead of him. His Father Clarence was a respected physician and his mother. Grace was an Opera singer and musician both were easily welcomed into a high status community and raised their children within it but their parenting methods did diverge to some degree while L.. Clarence emphasize the importance of nature. Grace was a city lover and forced her children into the arts. Hemingway later claimed to despise his mother playing cello and and even his own name which he believed to recall the WORC- protagonists of Oscar Wilde's famous play. Historians agree that Little Ernest got most of his spark and artistic talent Alan from his mother this divide in his soul would be there for the rest of his life. Ernest would never be able to settle down or choose a permanent home. Both the city and the country entry held their appeal for the young boy. He was a consummate Jack of all trades excelling in music sports like boxing and football hunting but most importantly early journalism. His work for the High School paper earned him a job as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star at a mere eighteen years of age. Such a job pleased both of his parents who thought it was a career worthy of the hemingway pedigree but hemingway always had his eyes set on a bigger canvas the world stage and right now that stage was consumed by the fires of the First World War as nineteen eighteen. Don America was finally pulled deeper into the conflict unable to let go of the guiding hiding wisdom if his father Ernest knew he had a duty. Instead of directly enlisting he signed up to be an ambulance driver for the Red Cross. An interesting choice for someone. Someone considered by history to be the ultimate ideal of a man some see many contradictions in the man's life. But this choice rings true despite his macho posturing there. There was a gentle side. The Hemingway that only wished to guard and protect life and that wish was quickly fulfilled along with other volunteers. Ernest left his comfortable American American life behind for the Italian front and the horrors of war. Once they're as fate would have it. He had his first meeting with death and another ambulance driver. We're on course. For literary greatness John Dos Passos with whom Ernest would share both friendship and intense rivalry over the coming years damage need alight friend service American to glad to hear a familiar voice in this carnage fresh to the war then easy to tell these. Corpses they're hauling from that decimated munitions conciliating not the front. They're beautiful compared to what you'll see soon wasn't being yellow just unused all this noise. The Cross shouldn't hire from the crib. Charip you High School Footballer. Something a reporter writer really good Lord just what they needed another one wanna me your journalists as well. Let's straighten one thing. Being a journalist and being a writer writing is about truth not spinning stories. Well my father always told you'll be dead days of you. Don't forget everything your father told you. Keep the lighter I imagine Eh. You'll need it arrogant bastard. We should get a drink. One night is involvement on the front was as dos. PASSOS predicted did brief but explosive moved from Alan to a station directly on the Italian front known as for Salta DP AVIC. It took only a month for Hemingway's ways war to become personnel.

"What he did. Lester Ester took an eight by thirty foot. Bamboo raft He he anchored it to an old Ford engine block. Rock in fifty feet of water about eight miles south west of Jamaica. This was a shallow Ocean Bank but technically it's an international national waters. It's beyond the three mile limit of Jamaica's Ocean possessions right and it's anomalous because once you're that that far out the sea floor is usually going to be hundreds or even a thousand feet deep the country the raft the country by the way got the rafters the country. It's called the Republic of new Atlantis and he On top of this Rafferty as iron pipes stones. Bamboo stainless steel is the structure and he made this raft. This artificial island. This would be country using all of the funds from from his biography. My brother Ernest Hemingway and he also he said you know. We're starting this country small but we're going to expand it in the future. We'll build a bigger raft. who had we'll stick together right This is interesting to me so like I mean did. He have some kind of dinghy that he would use to get to dry land. You know I mean look. What's the logistics of this whole setup? Right you would think he needs a an away boat of some sort. That's right so he got this setup. It's clearly not super sustainable stain. -Able right meaning your source of fresh water and so on but he had the money to play with If we look at the how successful his biography of his brother was he made a ton of scratch. We don't have a exact figure but He definitely that would have been a the equivalent of a bestselling in you know New York Times bestseller back in those days for sure. Yeah we knew. A Playboy magazine paid him. Twenty five grand to serialize it to publish it in the magazine over subsequent issues and that works out to what a hundred and sixty thousand dollars today. Yikes no not yet. Wow that's great good for Leicester and honestly what a bold move. What an odd an interesting thing to do? And and We talked about what his his aim aim. Was Ben not yet yeah. He had a very specific goal in mind which was to start eight marine research society. Heidi that would be funded with the money that he made from up selling stamps. New Atlantis. Stamps I'm GonNa need a little bit a little bit of help with this when Ben Stamps like shares like what are we talking here. Yeah for the Breath markets The stamp collectors. So was it really that big of a deal back in those days that you could hope to make that kind of money. Enough to finance a whole whole aquatic research institution just from selling postage stamps. This I think that was more visibility thing. If I'm being honest the Marine Marine Research Society is probably mostly my brother Ernest. Hemingway money going into there I just I don't how many stamps would you have to sell. It's strange because it seems more more like a publicity stunt right the further we get into this but yeah he was trying to make a go of it selling selling stamps. He also was on good terms. With the closest acknowledged government the Jamaican government. They actually really liked the dude A spokesperson for the Jamaican embassy said in nineteen sixty four said Yo. Lester is a decent well meaning soul and this project is it's it's good you know it's also an international waters and historians argue. That one of the reasons Jamaica was okay with this with this new country popping up To their southwest was entirely because they felt like he was he really was building. This as a stunt for environmentalism he wanted to protect marine wildlife. And he also weirdly enough. Did you see this. He outlawed gambling in his new nation. And that that made Jamaica really happy interesting so maybe it was. Maybe they were worried. It would be like a gambling haven. Maybe they were a gambling problems you know. We know gambling can be a really toxic situation. Especially Ashley in Potentially poverty stricken places that are kind of commodified by tourism and casinos sneaking in and folks that grew up there and live there developing gambling problems. That actually happens in a lot of those Native American Casino Situation Lincoln. Be a real real problem so I can see how that could be the the case The speculating here. But here's the thing he again used that very obscure At the time because again this is from eighteen fifty six. US S. Guano Islands Act Allowing to take control of any island rock or key on behalf of the US government if it's unoccupied and contains contains Guano deposits. So where's the POOP Ben. Where's the Guano deposits? So this is interesting because everybody remembers the previous episode. You'll recall the the language in the Guano Act is tricky something is you can lay claim to something on it and you can Then legally consider consider that land as quote appertaining to the United States I yes that was a term that we had to kind of really unpack was. Yeah so what's interesting. There is that if Lester claimed the whole islander the whole raft Guano Act then it would not be its own country it would be in this realm of quasi belonging to the United States. Therefore he couldn't make it his own country so what he did was. He divided the island in half. He claimed named the quote unquote unoccupied half of his island on behalf of the US. And he said that's the Guido Act. We're just going to. I guess we're just GonNa let Birds Birds poop on this part of the raft and boom. We've got one. Oh and he said the other half is new Atlanta So so really half. US half half its own country. Half Bird toilet half bird toilet. But that's the thing though I mean like how did he attract had any attract the bird bombs like I don because it seems like the language of the law law it really does require that that be the what constitutes a deposit. I mean they were getting silly here but like you know if a bird poops on your raft. It's it's technically depositing Guana Ontai raft so all it all it takes is one errant. You know maybe I mean He. He wasn't he clearly wasn't in the Guano business right. The population of new Atlantis started at six it was Leicester Doris. His his spouse bows their daughters And Hillary who are seven three years old at the time respectively Pr Guy Named Edward Moss and his assistant Julia so in February of sixty five. There's a vote in the Republic of new Atlantis The seven voters make lester the first president to have another PR blitz. Now that you know the republic has its first election and end Kingston. Jamaica's papers cover it. Lester tells the paper that his new republic will be a peaceful power and not threaten. Its Caribbean Caribbean neighbors. Thanks Bro fraiche appreciate it. They also did I. I don't know about you but I'm fascinated by what are called micro nations and this. This is a Micronesian is micro nation. No no no. It's it's the micro come from sorry. I'm getting back into silly. Semantic at another doesn't exist but it is is Micronesia smaller than Indonesia it's made up of smaller islets. Yes right got it. The micro is further away a descriptive term. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I believe so now I am. I am an armchair at a Malla gised very interested in it but I am not an entomologist by a trade so it is quite possible that there is a homonym play and that Micronesia actually translates to something that neither of us know it could be you know the the shining scales of the pufferfish indeed micro nations though to your point then don't have legal recognition in terms of you know the UN win or any kind of bodies that do stuff like that right right and the rule of nations is It's kind of fake it till you make it approach. We see this even even today with a different Different countries regions that are jockeying for you in recognition. The way you become a nation is by having other nations say. Hey that's a nation. It's very ad hoc I. I mean I hate to say it that way it feels arbitrary. There is a process if you get enough nations together together to say hey Peg Romania is indeed a real nation. Then then boom you're in it's also a phenomenon wherein people absolutely lose their minds over Super Producer Casey peg rim. He's a peg maniac. Yeah this and so. When you won a nation to appear legitimate you start preemptively creating the trappings of legitimacy even if you are not recognized by The powers that be so you want stuff like flags to satisfy the VEX largest you want stuff like stamps to your point right for the Fila logistics for the Phyllis Dang it as close. It's a tricky word. I don't know why that's another. There's so many beautiful mostly useless this words in English like the people who collect matchbooks flu. Minist- really yeah. It's a cool word. Rose the flag one again Vex Logistics Logistics. Yeah really learning a lot today. About what would you call that enthusiasts. Yeah they're not really experts. Exactly right Oh not really yeah eveque. Salala gist is just a flag flag. Enthusiast not necessarily A flag expert with some sort of pedigree right. Yeah or there's someone who just studies flags you know like. Hey Hey are you a are you a vex Lalla just doing well not by trade but I'm interested with what kind of flags do you have. I don't know now my head there's a guy with a trenchcoat who's walking up to people in the the street and he opens a trenchcoat and he just has a bunch of flags they would have to be those tiny flags tiny flags. Yeah which is still a flag. Right I mean you know. Flag is a flag is a flag. There's no size designation Zig nation for what makes a flag quote unquote proper right right although there are standard rectangular dimensions not every country practices. Those dimensions you. You know what fell it. Takes is a flag. Let's get ridiculous. History of flag moving for we should make the shipping container a sovereign nation. Yeah Casey you're UN. Let's do it. Okay good 'cause we we need. We need an odd number of votes else. Will descend into chaos and gridlock and Casey can be the the the the king. The governor Prime and Prime Minister Administer Prime Minister. I don't want to set them up to be a dictator case. You're you're cool with that we just elected you I- i- rule at the pleasure of the people know. Let us that's great. I love your energy man so so our nascent nation here ridiculous history aside New Atlantis does get a flag flag. Lester spouse does it and then they also create a national currency. I love this name who I can see why Ben Because you have have no scruples. My friend the scruple. That's what it's called the scruple. It's like a ruble. A scruple scruple is also like the thing. What does a scruple if you have no scruples? That means you are A moral in some way. Right yeah scruple is a reservation Right yeah yeah yeah. It's it's what stops you from doing something morally morally sketchy or reprehensible. And he must have had that in mind. Because it's almost like saying this is our currency is the very nature of goodness if you have scruples than that means you are a thoughtful person if you have have no scruples than you are a bad person. So he's really drawing a line in the water the banning the wrath in the wrath. It's such a writer joke because Lester oster later said I believe the rich should have many scruples boom exactly love. Here's my question. The team did you have all this stuff set up before. He went out on the raft did did he ever leave the raft. What if he left it on occupied could it have been you know Invaded so many questions here. Who designed the flag did he do it himself? It seems like it was him and his wife designing physically. Yeah okay as to how much they had worked out in. Advance We we can say that. There is a draft of the new Atlantis.
The Key to Unlocking Creativity
"Kohl's Shaffer. And the title of that article was right drunk, edit sober. And that's a quote, that's been attributed falsely to Ernest Hemingway, but was in fact, added by another author called pita degrees.

But then when it comes to edit and actually finally, publish, that's when you should maybe come to with a more sober mind, if you like and the same thing holds true for many creators, whether they musicians or whether they are artists, a lot of them in being alcoholics or. Being drug addicts or basically knitting define themselves in an altered state to be the most creative, and I wondered if from a business perspective, if the best time to be making creative decisions and try to adopt a more innovative approach to your business is win. There's a raw emotion similar to the kind of biological feelings. Maybe that happened inside you. When you're in an altered state, when you're a motion win the feelings really bubbling up, when you just had a massive fairly when you've just had a big loss may. When you've just missed that bonus, maybe that's the time to think about how you should what crazy things you should put in place to innovate for the future. You don't necessarily act on it at that time. But that's the time when the emotion is so raw. And so, when those emotions are roar, maybe just like the author and the artist who needs to be drunk to create a good book as some of these genes. Have been.

"Though you may not be writing you're sitting there available to the muse and calling upon us and that meditation ended up creating a huge amount of us wealth of writing that came out of me during that period and Ernest Hemingway said in the book, if you if you're having trouble writing, just right one true line, something that's true. And we all have a true line as we all have something that we know is true. Right. This second. So when you write that down, then everything else will flow out of it. And it was really true that I found that. I really I went with us a law. During that time. And so with the lyrics on this record. I decided that every lyric on the record would be specific moment that I will that would remember for my trip like a specific moment the happened. I decided not to put anything that was just pulled out of the sky, which would do a loss. You know, what that sounds like a nice lyric?
