Christmas, civilisation and Hemingway's new year

Ernest Hemingway at Finca Vigia, Havana, Cuba, 1955
I've written a few Canberra Times columns recently, chiefly on seasonal themes:

'Sixty years on, we can learn from Hemingway's grim New Year's resolve': thoughts on creativity and mortality, riffing on Hemingway.

'Civilisation and how to cultivate it': on the subtler signs of civilised life.

- 'Meeting the challenge of Christmas': on the holiday as a regular intellectual challenge.
