Ernest Hemingway interviewed by George Plimpton, The Paris Review, 1954:
INTERVIEWER: How much rewriting do you do?
HEMINGWAY: It depends. I rewrote the ending to “Farewell to Arms”, the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied.
INTERVIEWER: Was there some technical problem there? What was it that had stumped you?
HEMINGWAY: Getting the words right.
