With the three stories you can see the foundation of a master. With the ten poems...well he's no Wilfred Owen.

This first “book” of Hemingway’s is fun for two reasons. The first is that it is 58 pages of self-published creative writing from a 24 year old scenester, making it the 1920s equivalent of a Zine. The second is that reading the juvenilia of a good writer is always enlightening. You get to see what of their voice was congenital, and have the linear relationship between volume of practice and quality of output revealed with vivid clarity.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Personally,I think I enjoyed it more as I started out reading 'a movable feast' and would cut out and read whatever Hemingway had gotten published as it was published. I got some backstory that way. "Out of Season" I think, is rather more interesting (and rather darker) if you have some context and background.

Three Stories and Ten Poems was published in 1923 in a limited edition of 300 by a boutique, Paris-based publisher. It was Hemingway’s first significant thrust into the literary world. There was enough stylistic creativity in the work (particularly with the short story “Out of Season”) to earn the attention of several influential American critics, setting the stage for the positive reception of The Sun Also Rises in 1926.

An interesting read of his first published book. His poems are raw. His prose is good. At 58 pages, it's a very quick read.
