Discovering a Subject
It?s very important to be your own person. Ernest Hemingway is an author who is known for being generally disliked amongst most teenagers. I like his writings. I had previously read For Whom the Bell Tolls by Hemingway and enjoyed its wartime setting and surprise ending. Before I read any of Hemingway?s short stories I had assumed that all his stories were in wartime settings. For most of his stories this is true, but I was surprised at how many weren?t during a war. I have chosen four of Hemingway?s short pieces to analyze. After reading and taking notes on common themes and literary elements for many Hemingway stories I have decided to use ?The Snows of Kilimanjaro?, ?The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber?, ?Soldier?s Home? and ?In Another Country?.
?The Snows of Kilimanjaro? is about a man Harry, and his wife, Helen. It takes place in Africa during a hunting trip. Harry has developed gangrene from what started as a small scratch in his leg. Harry is barely alive and welcoming death at the start of the story. He soon fears death as he realizes he wants to live. When death is brought to his camp for
