    Actually that’s quite accurate.

    Hemingway might have been good at it. Many of the ads in the ‘40s and ’50s were clever and almost of literary quality.
    .
    When you think of it, most ads are little teaching tales of self-improvement and helping others to improve. These days, the subject to be helped or corrected is what I call The Stupid White Guy.
    .
    On the other hand, Faulkner as an ad writer … don’t think so.

    That’s because most ad-men(persons) today have psychology degrees in addition to or in lieu of business degrees.

    ANYTHING would’ve been an improvement on the crap he put out.

    Of course, it’s been that way for quite a while. The first I read of it was in THE HIDDEN PERSUADERS, by Vance Packard.

    Pappy didn’t need to write for ciggy-pushers. He managed to die alone on his own….

    The Marlboro Man did die from lung cancer.

    … in a gruesome way.
    .
    I had a few professors that were of the generation that grew up reading new Hemingway works as they were written. A few had met him here or there, and took interest in details of his personal life. It was a sort of hero worship that kept their interest.
    .
    Although they thought in later years he was diminishing in literary importance they still felt affection for him through his continuing macho image.
    .
    Maybe Hemingway felt unequal to producing good material after having received the Nobel. He was in a great deal of pain from various injuries, and supposedly used alcohol even more than previously to cope.
    .
    One of my teachers who specialized in 20th Century American lit said he couldn’t understand how his family, knowing that he was so depressed, could let him be alone in a house with so many guns around.
