Hemingway 

“Each evening after work, I looked forward to watching Ken Burns's Hemingway on Passport. The narration, stories, and video footage are fascinating. I love the way Burns weaves specific analyses of Hemingway's works with a discussion of his life and relationships. My husband and I are both English teachers and literature lovers, and we find so many programs to enjoy and share on Passport.”
