导读:据英国《每日电讯报》7月3日报道,美国著名作家欧内斯特·海明威(Ernest Hemingway)的密友——作家霍奇纳(AE Hotchner)日前曝光称,海明威是因无法忍受美国联邦调查局(FBI)的监视而自杀的。霍奇纳称,FBI因怀疑海明威与古巴有联系而对其进行监视,让海明威非常苦恼,并最终致其自杀。霍奇纳在《纽约时报》上刊文称,海明威一直很担心FBI的调查人员。1983年,FBI公布了一份长达127页的海明威调查记录。这份记录始于20世纪40年代,证实海明威确实遭到FBI监视,而且这是FBI局长埃德加·胡佛(J. Edgar Hoover)的命令。

生前好友称海明威因无法忍受FBI的监视而自杀

For five decades, literary journalists, psychologists and biographers have tried to unravel why Ernest Hemingway took his own life, shooting himself at his Idaho home while his wife Mary slept.

Some have blamed growing depression over the realisation that the best days of his writing career had come to an end. Others said he was suffering from a personality disorder.

Now, however, Hemingway's friend and collaborator over the last 13 years of his life has suggested another contributing factor, previously dismissed as a paranoid delusion of the Nobel prize-winning writer. It is that Hemingway was aware of his long surveillance by J Edgar Hoover's FBI, who were suspicious of his links with Cuba, and that this may have helped push him to the brink.

Writing in the New York Times on the 50th anniversary of Hemingway's death, AE Hotchner, author of Papa Hemingway and Hemingway and His World, said he believed that the FBI's surveillance "substantially contributed to his anguish and his suicide", adding that he had "regretfully misjudged" his friend's fear of the organisation.

The reassessment is significant as it was precisely because of Papa Hemingway that the writer's fear of being bugged and followed by the FBI first surfaced. Hotchner's belated change of heart casts a new light on the last few months of Hemingway's life and two incidents in particular.

In November 1960, Hotchner writes, he had gone to visit Hemingway and Mary in Ketchum, Idaho, for an annual pheasant shoot. Hemingway was behaving oddly, Hotchner recalls: "When Ernest and our friend Duke MacMullen met my train at Shoshone, Idaho, for the drive to Ketchum, we did not stop at the bar opposite the station as we usually did because Ernest was anxious to get on the road. I asked why the hurry. 'The Feds.'
