Year 1953: Ernest Hemingway wins the Pulitzer Prize

Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899 – 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, journalist, and sportsman. His economical and understated style—which he termed the iceberg theory—had a strong influence on 20th-century fiction. His debut novel "The Sun Also Rises" was published in 1926. In 1953, Hemingway went on to win the Pulitzer for his novel, "The Old Man and the Sea". In fact, many of his works are considered classics of American literature.
