[From Great Modern Reading, ed. W. Somerset Maugham, Doubleday, 1943, pp. 157-8 & 527:]

Take Scott Fitzgerald’s “Babylon Revisited” for example. I do not think it a very good story, for it is carelessly written and not quite convincing, but it offers a vivid picture of the time when young Americans, tempted by the favorable exchange and looking for something they thought they could not find at home, flocked to Paris and the Riviera. Not many of them profited by the experience.

[...]

But it was not only literally that they looked upon the wine when it was red, these young men who went abroad; not few of them imbibed also of the strong wine of French culture, and its effects were perhaps not less harmful. They accepted the French at their own very absurd valuation of themselves, which was that outside France nothing of artistic value existed or could exist, and humbly put themselves to school at the feet of a number of very mediocre writers. Some went to pieces. The most talented bartered their native energy for a mannered stylization and a symbolism foreign to their temper. The only writer I can think of who benefited from contact with Europe is Ernest Hemingway. I have a notion that without it he would not have acquired the breadth of outlook and the sensitiveness to beauty that make him to my mind the most versatile and powerful writer of fiction in the English-speaking countries. I have a notion that except for that he might never have learned how to describe nature so precisely and so exquisitely that, though it must be fifteen years since I read The Sun Also Rises, I still remember with ravishment his pictures, so concise and apparently so casual, of the Spanish landscape.

[...]

The success of For Whom the Bell Tolls was so great and is so recent that it seems unnecessary to speak of it. There are episodes in this book that only Ernest Hemingway could have written, but they are so graphic and so brilliant that to my mind they somewhat impair the unity of the story, and for that reason, from purely technical standpoint I am inclined to think Farewell to Arms, though a less important book, a better novel.

Early (1924-1941) Hemingway

I suspect if you love Hemingway it is the very late (e.g. the Paris memoir "A Moveable Feast" and the very early (the vignettes version "in our time" (1924) & the later expanded "In Our Time" (1925)) that were probably the cause of that love. They were for me in any case.

The Essential Hemingway is a 1947 U.K. anthology edition first published by Jonathan Cape and reissued by a few other publishers since that time but apparently never updated. It is hard to justify it still being called "the essential" when it has nothing from the later years. The now rare "The Hemingway Reader" does a better job in covering everything except for the posthumous works.

This is still a good value as you get the complete "The Sun Also Rises" (c. 200 pgs.), excerpts from "A Farewell to Arms", "To Have and Have Not", "For Whom the Bell Tolls" & "Death in the Afternoon" (c. 100 pgs) and 25 short stories w/ 15 vignettes interspersed (i.e. the complete "In Our Time") (c. 200 pgs).

Shamefully and unbelievably, there are typos in this 20th printing (c. 2014) of the 2004 paperback edition from Arrow Books (e.g. "hopppers" for hoppers and "Nich" for Nick on page 385) so points off for that. ( )
