how Hemingway's childhood
The consequences of such an upbringing forced Hemingway to prove throughout his life that he was a real man: strong, brave, courageous, sometimes rude and daring. This was reflected in and in his attitude toward women.
His father, Clarence Edmund Hemingway, was a medical doctor and a successful one.
Her mother is Grace Ernestine Hall-Hemingway, a former opera singer.
She dressed Ernest in girlish flowered dresses and bonnets and called him "doll. It was only at age 6 that Hemingway got his first boyish haircut.
The father was withdrawn and had a strict discipline in the upbringing of the children, the mother, on the contrary, was peculiar and adhered to the Victorian tradition of dress.
Ernest Hemingway was born July 21, 1899, into an intelligent and very well-off family.

But one day he had to shoot his beloved cat named Willie, who had been hit by a car. The animal was in agony, so the writer had no choice but to shoot it. He could not leave the killing of the cat to anyone else.
Hemingway admits that he had to shoot people, but never had to kill «someone he knew and loved for 11 years, and who and with two broken paws continued to purr».
He recalled this episode as one of the hardest of his life.
Hemingway loved cats. He had 57 cats in his entire life.
