Reading Hemingway, for me, feels like panning for gold At the beginning I am really enthusiastic People have told me about the gold, I believe in the gold, and I want to find it After the first couple stony pages, my excitement starts to waver Where is this aforesaid treasure My attention wanders off My interest is fading I m almost inclined to call it off There s nothing there for me But I keep panning, because of this disbelief that I may not be able to discover what so many have before me And then suddenly I see a glimmer at the pebbly bottom of the river The tiniest crumb of gold, I ve found it It s really there Then it s back to stones and pebbles Stones and pebbles Stones and pebbles What s that Something shiny You don t think gold again Indeed Several crumbs A nugget My first assessment was too hasty There s gold in Hemingway You just gotta be patient How wonderful that my endeavours have paid off I m converted, the gold rush is justified But why are the nuggets getting so rare again Are they simply slipping my attention Are they really there And why is panning getting so frigging boring again Maybe the gold was just an illusion Maybe I just don t see it Maybe it s not the right time I don t know. I picked up this collection of ten Ernest Hemingway short stories when I was looking for Literature with a capital L to suggest to my real life book club for its monthly read whoever is hosting book club that month is responsible for nominating 5 or 6 books, and then everyone in attendance votes Poor Hemingway was a no vote getter North and South won in a landslide But since a I d already brought this book home from the library, b I like short stories, and c I felt like I needed to addHemingway to my life than the one or two short stories I d read in the past, I decided to read this book anyway.These stories were written in the 1920s and 1930s Ernest was a good looking guy when he was young Maybe his good looks and intelligence and talent made itdifficult for him to be happy and satisfied in life I don t know In any case, he lived an adventurous and problematic life he was married four times, had any number of affairs, and committed suicide at age 61 due to serious illness.Hemingway had a somewhat unique and testosterone soaked code of honor in which dignity and courage were the paramount virtues, and that comes through pretty clearly in most of these stories They re chock full of violence and brutality and various types of unpleasantness detailed, brutal scenes of hunting on an African safari in The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber a man dying of an infected leg in The Snows of Kilimanjaro a fixed or is it boxing match in Fifty Grand hit men on the prowl in The Killers men suffering both physical and mental war wounds in several stories The women characters in these stories are of the ball and chain variety and or actively predatory and cruel the first and last stories in particular have some really nasty relationship issues Some of the stories are so slice of life that I m not sure what their point was It would be very easy, especially in our day and age, to be dismissive of his stories I can t say that the values espoused in them really speak to me in any profound or moving way.And yet there s something in these stories, often below the surface of his simply told tales, that has worked its way into my head and pokes at me and my comfortable life The Snows of Kilimanjaro is, at least in part, a cautionary story about using your talents and not letting life pass you by because it s easier to say I ll do that sometime later These stories have made me think a little harder about being, and doing, what is important to me, even if they re not the same things that Hemingway thought were important. I d forgotten what a good short story writer Ernest Hemingway could be This collection came out in 1961, the same year as the author s death But most of the stories were published in magazines in the 1920s and 30s, when he was at the height of his powers, and all were available in earlier volumes.There s an impressive range of work here, from the ambitious title story about a man dying of gangrene while on safari and slipping into and out of consciousness, remembering scenes from his wasted life the story has the depth and richness of a novel to the noir classic The Killers, which inspired the famous film and contains some very amusing gangster dialogue Fifty Grand takes you into the world of boxing there s also a boxer in The Killers , and has a narrative left hook you might not see coming I didn t , while The Gambler, The Nun, And The Radio about a man who s been shot and his colourful hospital visitors shows you just how funny Hemingway could be Also included is a classic story that I ve read several times but still seems mysterious to me A Clean Well Lighted Place, about two waiters discussing the final patron in their bar before it closes for the night The old, deaf man tried to kill himself the week before, and the contrasting reactions of the waiters is very telling.Some stories in the book didn t resonate with me, particularly the Nick Adams war tales I recall the Adams stories from In Our Time working much better But their themes grace under pressure, war and death, initiations of various sorts are in keeping with the rest of the volume.I think my favourite story is the final one, The Short And Happy Life Of Francis Macomber, which feels connected to the opening tale because it s also set on safari and includes a man, woman, death and the concepts of courage and dignity I love the way it s constructed and how the characters actions in a moment of pressure tell you things that will affect their entire lives Also, it and Fifty Grand, the story that precedes it, are simply exciting on a narrative level.I don t know why I ve been on a Hemingway kick recently three of his books in less than a month but I m glad I picked this up These days, the author s legend seems to overshadow his work it s encouraging to know the writing, at least in the author s prime, was solid. indeki birka yk y d n p d n p tekrar okuyaca mdan eminim zellikle yk severlerin skalamamas gereken bir kitap Kilimanjaro nun Karlar.Tavsiye ederim. &FREE PDF ☟ The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories ☘ The Ideal Introduction To The Genius Of Ernest Hemingway, The Snows Of Kilimanjaro And Other Stories Contains Ten Of Hemingway S Most Acclaimed And Popular Works Of Short Fiction Selected From Winner Take Nothing, Men Without Women, And The Fifth Column And The First Forty Nine Stories, This Collection Includes The Killers, The First Of Hemingway S Mature Stories To Be Accepted By An American Periodical The Autobiographical Fathers And Sons, Which Alludes, For The First Time In Hemingway S Career, To His Father S Suicide The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber, A Brilliant Fusion Of Personal Observation, Hearsay And Invention, Wrote Hemingway S Biographer, Carlos Baker And The Title Story Itself, Of Which Hemingway Said I Put All The True Stuff In, With Enough Material, He Boasted, To Fill Four Novels Beautiful In Their Simplicity, Startling In Their Originality, And Unsurpassed In Their Craftsmanship, The Stories In This Volume Highlight One Of America S Master Storytellers At The Top Of His Form This collection of ten stories by Ernest Hemingway is dripping with testosterone The stories involve hunting, the horrors of war, the wounded, boxing, and fathers The majority of the stories were quite good, but I ll only write about my two favorites.The title story is about a man laying in the shadow of Mount Kilimanjaro with a terrible infection in his leg The vultures are flying, the hyena is crying, and the gangrene has an awful odor The man is thinking back on his life, knowing that he has wasted time and talent He will probably never have the opportunity to write all the stories that are in his head He s made a habit of using rich women to fund his lifestyle, including the wife at his side now He enters a dream state flying to the brilliant white snow on Kilimanjaro Many of the regrets in the story are similar to events in Hemingway s own life so the tale is very poignant.The last story, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber is about courage and masculinity during a safari in Africa The story is full of danger and ends with a twist It reflects Hemingway s passion for hunting and other macho pursuits Today many of us have negative attitudes toward trophy hunting of wild animals But most of the stories were written in the 1920s and 1930s so need to be read in that context. .
