In this essay we return to the central question of: How should a person be?
I’d like you to speak with the dead. Find a person (Ernest Hemingway )who lived and worked in the years between 1917-1967. Find out how they lived and how they thought about the world you now inhabit.
Remember. I’m not looking for a book report on peter rabbit here. I’m looking for you to use your subjects life to think more carefully and more critically about your own. It should be more of a conversation NOT A BOOK REPORT
Listen to them closely. Engage in conversation. Quote your subject directly.
Regard them with interest. Think about the way in which they moved through the world and how their movements might influence your own.
