NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES
Newspapers and magazines play a very important part in our life.
Practically there is no family that does not read them. We can learn
many things from newspapers. Perhaps that is why many years ago an
American humorous writer said: “All I know is what I see in the
papers”; and another American author more than half a century ago
wrote that “the careful reader of a few good newspapers can learn
more in a year than most scientists do in their great libraries”.
We can agree or disagree with these statements (better to disagree,
because scientific books and magazines have more information than
newspapers), but we'll have to say that newspapers help us in many
ways. There are a lot of different kinds of newspapers in our country.
One can buy them practically everywhere. It is impossible to read all
the newspapers and magazines. Everyone has favourite ones.
My favourite newspaper is “Komsomolskaya Pravda”. We can
read almost about everything in this newspaper. There are articles
dealing with home and abroad news, sport events, life of favourite
actors and singers and even the weather. We can find many interesting
things there. We can read some useful pieces of advice, some stories
about our life, and so on. There are puzzles, songs and even anecdotes
there. “Komsomolskaya Pravda” is one of the most interesting
newspapers, to my mind.
FAVOURITE WRITER
My favourite writer is Ernest Hemingway. He will always be remembered
as a writer of prose in which every word had meaning and where nothing
was wasted. His style had, in fact, such a widespread effect on
British and American literature that dozens of imitators appeared and
today many novels are accused of being “pseudo-Hemingway”.
The son of a smalltown doctor, Hemingway was born in Illinois in
1898. He gained from his father an early love of fishing and shooting,
interests which were to colour his life and work. Hemingway was
educated at schools in America and France. His father wanted him to be
a doctor, but he became a newspaper reporter, and then served with the
Italian Red Cross as an ambulance driver in World War 1.
Severely wounded in the fighting, Hemingway used this, as well as his
boyhood experiences, as the material for his first books. In “A
Farewell to Arms”, “For Whome the Bell Tolls” and
“The Old Man and the Sea” he wrote three classics of 20th
century literature.
“A Farewell to Arms” is a powerful antiwar story, but it
remains a lovestory, telling of the illfated romance between Frederic
Henry, a young American serving as a volunteer in the Italian army,
and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse. Frederic gradually decides to
get out of the war and make a separate peace. He and his wife manage
to get to neutral Switzerland where they are happy for a time. But the
ending is tragic, for Catherine dies. This novel shows Hemingway's
hatred of the world that “kills the
