“To Pound a Vicious Typewriter”: Hemingway’s Corona # 3

From: The Hemingway Review
Volume 32, Number 2, Spring 2013
pp. 109-121 | 10.1353/hem.2013.0009



Hemingway fell in love with the Corona #3 typewriter Hadley Richardson gave him in 1921. He wrote a poem to it, used it as his analyst, and took it with him from Paris to Key West to Cuba, where it resides at the Museo Hemingway in San Francisco de Paula, Cuba. The portable Corona was instrumental in his becoming an international correspondent and globetrotting author of a new kind of fiction. This essay looks at Hemingway’s relationship to the now lost world of the manual typewriter.
