Ernest Hemingway had many writers as his literary influences that helped him become a better writer. These influences include, Sherwood Anderson, Ezra Pound, and Gertrude Stein. In Chicago Hemingway befriended with Sherwood Anderson, an author of Whinesburg Ohio. Anderson encouraged Hemingway's writing efforts and convinced Hemingway to go to Paris because it was the place for any serious writers. Anderson's letters of introduction played a vital role for Hemingway's literary development. Anderson supplied Hemingway with letters of introduction to: Gertrude Stein, leader of the American expatriates, Sylvia Beach, owner of the English-language bookstore Shakespeare and Company, James Joyce, writer who novel Beach was about to publish, and Ezra Pound, the influential poet. Anderson also mailed an introductory letter to Lewis Galantiere, one of his translators in France. Each of his letter praised Hemingway's extraordinary talent. Pound and Stein were important in his literary development. In February 1922, Hemingway met Ezra Pound, who was a major figure involved in the imagist movement during the period between 1909 and 1918. Pound became one of his most important literary friends. Pound was the one who helped get his early work published. Pound supervised Hemingway's literary education and recommended that he read works by T.S. Eliot and James Joyce. Pound encouraged him to delete unnecessary words and to give images meaning. Pound had submitted six of Hemingway's poems to the Dial, but the magazine editor rejected because Pound had also submitted T.S. Eliot's "The Waste Land." Pound also accepted one of his stories for the Little Review, but unfortunately the editors rejected the submission. Harriet Monroe, an editor of Chicago little magazine, Poetry: A Magazine of Verse accepted six of Hemingway's poems. Even though Pound's editorial influence on his work wasn't as great compare to Eliot's, but was responsible for promoting his reputation and helped shape his career. In March 1922, Hemingway met Gertrude Stein. Stein pointed out that his novel contained too much description, and not particularly good description. She also pointed out that the heartless seduction scene in "Up in Michigan" made the story not suitable to be publish. Stein told Hemingway to "Begin over again and concentrate." Hemingway observed Stein's style of writing. Her writing was full of repeated words, phrases consisted of preposition and its object, and present participles. He credited Stein for helping him understanding prose rhythms. Hemingway said that he had learned how to write as much from painters as from other writers. He had studied paintings by Henri Matisse, Georges Braque, Juan Gris, Pablo Piasco, and Paul Cézanne. These are the painters that he admire because of their ability to capture the landscape. Paul Cézanne is his most favorite painter out of all of his other admired painters. In the ending of "Big Two-Hearted River" Nick Adams says that he wants to write the way Cézanne painted. When Hemingway returned to France Pound introduced him to Ford Madox Ford at his studio and Ford hired him as his assistant editor for the transatlantic review. His literary influences helped develop his path as a writer.
