Hemingway: “Make it alive”

“You see Iā€™m trying in all my stories to get the feeling of the actual life across ā€” not just depict life ā€” or criticize it ā€” but to actually make it alive. So that when you read something by me you actually experience the thing.”

Hemingway, age 25, letter to his father, March 1925
