A new exhibition in New York City takes an in-depth look at the life and writings of Ernest Hemingway.

The Morgan Library & Museum installation covers key periods in the Nobel Prize-winning author's life, from 1918 through World War II.

Nearly 100 items shed light on his creative process.

They include heavily revised manuscripts of such masterpieces as "For Whom the Bell Tolls'' and "The Sun Also Rises.''

There are also two handwritten pages of "A Farewell to Arms'' and correspondence with F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein and others.
