The Complete Poems


The Complete Poems

The Complete Poems, edited by Nicholas Gerogiannis, is a compilation of all the known poems Ernest Hemingway penned in his day. Though Hemingway stopped publishing poetry as his fame grew, he continued to write up until his death.

Known primarily for novels and short stories, Hemingway was, in his youth, a poet. At a time when he declared the novel was dead (prior to reading close friend Scott Fitzgerald’s "The Great Gatsby") Hemingway was composing the short prose pieces that would make him famous. Another friend, T. S. Eliot, told Hemingway that he had real promise as a poet. Hemingway's first book included poetry, but such creative endeavors were abandoned just as Hemingway would abandon his condemnation of the novel.
