Hemingway

The Hemingway tribe is the symbol of certain tabous that hunt families - no murky maledictions but two simple words: mental illness. depressions, addictions and numerous suicides - officially, seven including the legendary writer, Ernest Hemingway and the actress, Margaux Hemingway - had become the fatal norm of the family and the lifelong fight of 1980s superstar model Mariel Hemingway. The media discovered the curse when Ernest Hemingway decided to kill himself with a gun, in 1961. How could a man who had bravely affronted wars and written The Old Man and the Sea - the symbol of fighting for one’s survival - choose such an apprehensive gesture? Maybe because the author had admitted in an interview that ‘all grand writer had to take refuge from the world and dare to affront its own demons even if it shatters its mental health’. Until then, the public and media had privileged the image of the immense writer, the womanizer, the strong and courageous correspondant and the amusing hard drinker. A charismatic and mythical posture that overwhelmed his offspring that didn’t notice the superficiality of it all. Hopefully, the younger generation led by Dree Hemingway seems to have expelled the tantalizing weight and confirmed the words of a certain great-grandfather: ‘a man can be destroyed but not defeated.’
