Question:

What famous American poet did Ernest Hemingway get into a fist fight with?

Answer ->

Wallace Stevens. The scuffle occurred in the Florida Keys in 1936, and it's hard to know what it was about other than both were drunk. Hemingway boasted in a letter that he: "knocked all of him down several times and gave him a good beating." He was 36 and Stevens was 56.
