Hemingway's father committed suicide in , shooting himself. After its publication, he met his third wife, Martha Gellhorn.

Having viewed death and hardship in many forms, Hemingway's feeling of disillusionment was only magnified by his year struggle with writing that preceded the publication of The Old Man and the Sea.
In the company of writers like Ezra Pound, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Gertrude Stein, Hemingway infused his work with a sense of emptiness, disillusionment, and rebellion against patriotic ideals. In this way, his work can be considered related to novels like Ulysses and The Great Gatsby , which describe the sadness and hardship of the human condition.

It would be impossible for me to ask the Ambassador of my country to read a speech in which a writer said all of the things which are in his heart. Things may not be immediately discernible in what a man writes, and in this sometimes he is fortunate; but eventually they are quite clear and by these and the degree of alchemy that he possesses he will endure or be forgotten. Writing, at its best, is a lonely life. He grows in public stature as he sheds his loneliness and often his work deteriorates.
