`Ernest Hemingway' takes to Havana's streets once again

Havana, June 22 (IANS/EFE) The imposing figure of `Ernest Hemingway' multiplied by six doubles, who for their resemblance to the novelist won a contest in the US, surprised Cubans and tourists alike as they strolled the streets of Old Havana and visited places long identified with the American writer.

This is one of the novelties of the 14th International Hemingway Colloquium dedicated to the author of "The Old Man and the Sea", which opened this week at the Palacio O'Farrill Hotel in the historical center of Havana, where more than 100 scholars, professors and admirers of Hemingway (1899-1961) from the US, Canada, Japan, Italy and Ireland are meeting to discuss his life and works.

Among them are Americans Wally Collins, Stephen Terry, Gregory Fawcet, Thomas Mitchell, Edward Barry and Far Torrell, who proudly show off their amazing resemblance to the renowned novelist and journalist in the latter years of his life.

"I'm really only here to attend the four days of the Colloquium in Havana, which seems to me an excellent experience," Fawcet told EFE on a walk that took them to the bars of the restaurants La Bodeguita del Medio and El Floridita, two places forever associated with Hemingway's stay in Havana.

U.S. Officials Try To Gauge Threat From American Fighters In Syria

Aug 27 2014 2:39am CDT | Source: WNYC Music

The heyday of "war tourism" was probably the 1930s, when a host of intellectuals and artists left the U.S. to bear witness to the Spanish Civil War. Ernest Hemingway wrote about it. George Orwell, just to name another, actually fought in it. Regular people from all walks of life showed up on those fields of battle as well, in much the same way young men — both Muslim and non-Muslim — are streaming to Syria today. The modern day result: Instead of newsp ...

The Old Man Never Let It Go

Jul 17 2014 9:13am CDT | Source: D.C. Theater Scene

Ernest Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea could work on stage as a Samuel Beckett play. The old man Santiago, alone in a boat on the open water, reeling in an impossible fish, despairing and reveling in the simple human condition of kill and eat. Good, dark, woe-is-man stuff, right? Though Beckett never tackled Old […] The post The Old Man Never Let It Go appeared first on DC Theatre Scene.    ...

'The Strain' And 'Extant' Play On Fears Of Forces Out Of Our Control

Jul 9 2014 1:33pm CDT | Source: WNYC Music

They say every generation gets the science fiction it deserves, built around its biggest and most primal fears. Well, maybe they don't say that — but they should. In the '50s, all those movies about mutated giant monsters going berserk were a way for us to channel our fears about the atomic bomb. In the same way, in that same decade, all those body-snatcher movies were about being unable to tell friend from foe, or trust even your closest loved ones – ...
