London, Jan 2 (ANI): American novelist and journalist Ernest Hemingway's unpublished coded exploits during WWII will be made available online from January 5.
Among the important collection of the writer's work are some texts about the hunt for German U-boats off the Cuban coast, written in code, while serving on a ship tracking Nazi submarines in the Gulf of Mexico.
The collection consists of some 3,000 letters and other writings by the Nobel laureate, and will be released by curators at the writer's former residence in Cuba, where he lived from 1939 to 1961.
Curators at the Finca VigÍa museum in Havana, however, say that there are not known to be any new literary texts in the collection.
The release of the Hemingway archive is part of a joint project between the Cuban National Cultural Heritage Council and the US Social Science Research Council.
Next month, the newly released documents will be transferred to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library in Boston.
Hemingway aficionados believe that any new material will prove valuable to scholars.
"Hemingway was one of the major writers of the 20th century, so almost anything is of interest," Times Online quoted James Campbell, an author of books on American literature, as saying.
Mary Welsh, Hemingway's widow, donated Finca VigÍa to the Cuban Government to fulfil the writer's wishes after he committed suicide in 1961.
The collection at Finca VigÍa contains 22,000 items including books, letters and papers, as well as half-finished bottles of gin and whisky. (ANI)
