No question that Anderson had a tremendous impact on Hemingway, but I'd
hardly say that Hemingway owes "everything" to him. Don't forget Ring
Lardner, Dos Passos, Gertrude Stein, *The Kansas City Star's *reporter's
style book, Fitzgerald, and of course, that editor of editors, Max Perkins
at Scribner's. Hell, don't forget Mark Twain while you're at it. I'm
pretty sure I'm leaving out a lot of others, including the French and
Russian writers he read while working in Paris in 20s.
Every writer has their influences. It doesn't change the fact that
Hemingway was a great writer, with a canon anyone could be proud of.
All the Best-
