Personal Quote:

[1900, reportedly is last words] Robert - when you come to the hedge - that we must all go over - it isn't so bad. You feel sleepy - and you don't care. Just a little dreamy anxiety - which world you're really in - that's all.

Trivia:

His classic short story "The Open Boat" was inspired by an actual experience that occurred while he was a war correspondent. His ship having been sunk, he spent a week with a handful of other survivors in a lifeboat, some of it in rough weather. Most feel that it was during this period that he contracted the tuberculosis that lead to his early death at the age of 28. See more »
