    I enjoy reading short stories either in collections or as stand alones When I look back at what I have read in the last two years I notice many books under two hundred pages Because I have a tendency to go into a proverbial reading slump in between uality novels these short stories serve the purpose of preventing a slump and keeping my reading mind fresh As in previous years a suare on classics bingo is to read a classic short story Having read Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea last year a Pulitzer winner that moved me I selected The Snows of Kilimanjaro to fulfill this suare In this short work Hemingway once again proves that his writing is Nobel worthyFirst written in 1936 The Snows of Kilimanjaro features a writer named Harry who has gone on an African safari with his wife or perhaps girlfriend While in Africa he scratches his knee on a thorn and develops gangrene in his right leg As Harry's condition deteriorates toward death he looks back at the key moments in his life which lead him to being at the present in Africa With enough material to fill an entire book Hemingway moves from Harry's past to present interspersed with his significant other's reminiscing as he leaves his readers hanging for the duration of this short tale While reading one can only hope that Hemingway would have followed up this story by revisiting Harry with a full length novella discussing his life and stories in minute detailsLike Hemingway Harry is a writer As he reflects on the life passing before his eyes he reflects on his army service in World War I his convalescence flashbacks time in Paris up until the present in Africa With the gangrene poisoning setting in one does not know if Harry is living in the present or the past Meanwhile his significant other reflects on her own past her first husband his tragic death her children; in sum a life worthy of the lifestyles of the rich and famous Harry detests the rich and yet the two ended up together in a relationship that saved them both from the throes of depression Both were on the verge of turning the corner when Harry contracted gangrene Hemingway leaves the reader to imagine what will happen to his significant other moving forwardAt the story's onset Hemingway or perhaps an editor notes that Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa On the summit's western edge there lies a leopard carcass and no one can fathom what a leopard was doing at that altitude Like Harry perhaps the leopard was near death or had come to Kilimanjaro to reflect on his life flashing before his eyes One never learns the purpose of the leopard in the story as this opening note is its only mention In just thirty short pages a reader can experience Hemingway's brilliance leaving one compelled to reach for one of his full length novels As I try to vary my reading it may be awhile until I revisit Hemingway again although suffice it to say this will not be the last time I read his work A true story telling master Hemingway's work is always a treat to read regardless of its length5 stars

    It was never what he had done but always what he could do 6Air Fresh air Clarity for the mind A pause Another view Many things Many things can be found in a white landscape The snow hides many secrets The beginning and the end of everything there on the top of Kilimanjaro Harry knows it now A little too late Wait it is never too late you say? Nonsense Sometimes it is too damn lateA couple Harry and Helen They are in Africa He is dying of gangrene; she is by his side taking care of him This is my first Hemingway and I really enjoyed it His writing—at least in this short story—has the ability of conveying the inner process of one conflicted soul He described feelings and memories with such beauty and acuity that I felt completely captivated I do not care so much about the plot if you let me see what is inside somebody's mind by following the inextricably fascinating rhythm of your prose Hemingway wrote I followed I got hurt then healed while staring at the ceiling with that dreadful book next to meI did not know what to expect to be honest I do not know if this was the best short story to start my journey with this writer whose work has also been described as “painful”; I am officially afraid of his novels now But I saw it I felt it During the whole time I was reading this story I felt the air getting heavier It was filled with nostalgia and regret powerful things that can choke you to death Death It does not sound so scary when you start thinking about regret The story you could have written The call you should have made The kiss you should have given The confession you could have shared The vulnerability you should not have hidden The words you could have said; the words you should have swallowed The life you should have lived To the fullest Whatever that isDeath cannot be avoided But regret that unbearable weight upon your chest That stubborn attitude of waiting for tomorrow knowing there are limits Unforgivable I have no excuse to justify mine No good excuse at least“Never look back” “I don't regret anything” Is that possible? Is that even human? We are swinging between the avoidable and our humanitySome riddles cannot be answeredYou kept from thinking and it was all marvellous You were euipped with good insides so that you did not go to pieces that way the way most of them had and you made an attitude that you cared nothing for the work you used to do now that you could no longer do it But in yourself you said that you would write about these people But he would never do it because each day of not writing of comfort of being that which he despised dulled his ability and softened his will to work so that finally he did no work at all 5You cannot stop death He kindly stops for you a poet once wrote He awaits by your side resting his head on the foot of your bed while contemplating the setting sun A bicycle policeman A bird A hyenaBut regret chokes Slowly Inexorably Taking away all trace of existence while you are still breathing The hunger for living The desire of doing StillnessA bundle of miserable contradictions There are few things so human as regretMarch 31 15 Also on my blog

    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 add Hemingway to my life than the one or two short stories I'd read in the past I decided to read this book anywayThese stories were written in the 1920s and 1930s Ernest was a good looking guy when he was youngMaybe his good looks and intelligence and talent made it difficult 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 illnessHemingway had a somewhat uniue 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 andor 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 wayAnd 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 volumesThere’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 tellingSome 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 volumeI 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 levelI 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

    Published in the same year as Hemingway’s death this collection of ten previously released short stories comprises some of his very best short workThe Snows of Kilimanjaro first published in 1936 is a strange and thoughtful account at the end of a life with many regretsA Clean Well Lighted Place first published in 1933 this is one of my favorite of his short stories Describing a time and place and mood of introspection isolation and solitudeA Day's Wait first published in 1933 this is a touching scene of interactions between a father and son revealing a very human side to Hemingway’s writingThe Gambler the Nun and the Radio earlier published in 1933 this is a tragi comic story reminiscent in the setting and style to something John Steinbeck may have writtenFathers and Sons was first published in 1933 and features Hemingway’s recurring protagonist Nick Adams Telling of three generations of men this explores themes of relationships race and sex leadership and influence Like many of Hemingway’s most illuminating work this centers around outdoor activities like hunting and fishingIn Another Country first published in 1927 and the unnamed protagonist is likely Nick Adams who is an injured American officer serving with the Italians during WWI This is an exploration of courage fear and lossThe Killers first published in 1927 this is another Nick Adams story but one set in Illinois and describes a tense scene where two assassins seek to kill a local prize fighter and Adams’ talk with the target Ole Anderson This scene where Adams seeks to warn Anderson of the plot against him is one of existential ennui and hopelessnessA Way You'll Never Be was earlier published in 1933 and describes Nick Adams recovering from a head wound in Italy during the first world war Interestingly this describes an illuminating scene of post traumatic stress disorder decades before that condition was explained in medical scienceFifty Grand first published in 1927 and centers around an aging boxer training for his final fight Like hunting and fishing boxing was a theme for which Hemingway revealed not just an affinity but also a sophisticated depth of understanding A good sports story this also expounds and illustrates Hemingway’s moral codeThe Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber was first published in 1936 and is perhaps my favorite Hemingway story In his economical style Hemingway packs a novel amount of content into a short story length The reader is guided through explorations of wealth value relationships fear courage betrayal and redemption Margot like Lady Britt from The Sun Also Rises is one of Hemingway’s most villainous women The hunter Robert Wilson in his narrative asides reveals Hemingway’s moral code and an eagerness to live a principled heroic lifeThis would be an excellent introduction to Hemingway’s great work for a new reader

    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 uite good but I'll only write about my two favoritesThe 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 poignantThe 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
