The memoir heading up Chapter II, "The Doctor and the Doctor's Wife," sketches a scene in the evacuation of Greeks from Adrianople, an incident that ties into the Smyrna evacuation described earlier. The short story is told from the viewpoint of Nick Adams. Nick's father has hired Dick Boulton, a Mytis from the Indian Camp, to saw up some logs that have drifted onto his property from the log boom of a logging company.

On Writing (Hemingway)

Nick's father loses his temper over Boulton's reference to the logs as "stolen property," and the two men almost come to fisticuffs, after which Boulton leaves. The incident creates a difference of opinion between Nick's father and mother, and Nick finds himself in the position of taking sides, even though he is just a boy. Chapter III, "The End of Something," portrays a fishing trip taken by Nick and his teen-aged girlfriend, during which they break up, and Nick struggles with his angst over their split.

The aftermath of the breakup is addressed in Chapter IV, when Nick is stormbound with his close friend Bill, and Bill tries to put a positive twist on the breakup and convince Nick that he's better off. In Chapter V, "The Battler," Nick is "riding the rails" when he gets thrown off a train by the brakeman, who punches him in the face.

In Our Time

He takes refuge with a punch-drunk fighter and the fighter's hobo companion, a black man who feeds him and looks after him. The next memoir introducing Chapter VI, "A Very Short Story," is the first to mention Nick being wounded during combat and propped against a church wall.

This memoir introduces a story that recounts a love affair between a wounded young man and his nurse, which ends by letter, as in fact did Hemingway's affair with his war nurse, Agnes von Kurowsky.

The memoir preceding Chapter VII, "Soldier's Home," sketches a vignette of a soldier cowering in a trench during a bombardment sweating and praying to Jesus to get him out of this and promising to believe in him, but after the soldier has survived, he tells no one about Jesus.

In the subsequent story, a returned soldier named Krebs stays at home, does virtually nothing, except practice his clarinet and play pool. His religious mother forces him to lie to her that he loves her, when in truth he feels he doesn't love anybody. In the end he decides to leave home and get a job in Kansas City.

In the memoir immediately following, which introduces Chapter VIII, "The Revolutionist," the narrator relates an incident in which two Kansas City cops see two Hungarians who have just robbed a cigar store. One of the officers shoots and kills both without asking any questions, thinking they are Italians and that no one will care. The following story paints a literary portrait of a Hungarian communist who travels through Italy to Switzerland and is arrested there.

The juxtaposition of memoir and story in Chapter IX, "Mr. Eliot" seems to have no logical connection. However, Hemingway is a writer who broods about life and the things in it.

There is a great likelihood that the marriage of memoir and story here is meant to contrast the life-and-death stakes of the bull ring and its inhabitants, both bulls and matadors, with the sterile, effete existence and behavior of puritans who would be artists.

The memoir in this case portrays an incident when two of the three bullfighters in an afternoon are both inept and unlucky, and the younger, third matador is left the task of killing five bulls. It could be argued that this chapter is the one in which Hemingway makes his strongest fictional statement about what it takes to be a "real" literary artist, and he makes this statement by means of what could be considered a cautionary tale.

The short story sketches the life of Hubert Elliot, a prissy postgraduate student and poet, who at 25 years of age is saving himself for the woman he will marry, and he does marry--a woman very like himself in moral behavior and life experience.

When they travel abroad to live in France and Hubert fails to impregnate his wife, he imports a friend of hers from the tea shop where she worked. In the end, Hubert sleeps in a separate bedroom, works late on his book of poetry, which he pays to have published, and the two women sleep together.

The final sentence of the story says, "Elliot drank white wine and Mrs.

Elliot and the girl friend made conversation and they were all quite happy. This chapter is not only a statement about how not to be a real artist, but it is also the pivotal point of the book, inasmuch as it leaves the war and wartime behind and moves on to a post war phase when the narrator is in Europe, drinking in the exciting events of a continent recovering from a world-altering conflict. The writer who narrates has an unabashed obsession with the bull ring and those connected with this deadly "entertainment.

The chapter itself is a poignant story about a childless woman at a hotel, who wishes to rescue a stray cat stranded in the rain, but fails, ending up with a calico house cat delivered to her by the manager of the hotel. On the first page of Chapter XI, "Out of Season," a matador performs ineptly in the ring and is humiliated by the crowd, one of whom cuts off his braided pigtail and swings it around.

In the story that follows, a young gentleman and his wife are staying at the hotel, and the husband hires the town drunk to be their guide on a fishing trip. In a number of stories, the theme of loss later to be dramatized is encoded in the setting described in the beginning.

Critics have already pointed out that this forms the main connection between each story and the short war vignette preceding it, but the same pattern of echoes is also at work within the main body of the stories. The central crisis never bursts out unexpectedly, it is carefully prepared for by a succession of proleptic elements, the consequence being that when it actually happens, the meaning is already all there.

The multiple sexual innuendoes of the story have already received critical attention, 11 thus highlighting the thematic unity of the piece. The center of interest is thus displaced, as if the actual purpose of the tale could not be approached directly on account of its unbearable import, and could only be viewed through the mediation of an emotionally more acceptable avatar.

The caesarian, harrowing as it is, proves to be only a preparation for a more unendurable event, the gory suicide of the father. Each new misfortune seems to be the end of the story until it is superseded by a more pathetic one. However, when they are supposed to be concerned with baseball, Nick manages to return to the subject of fishing 88 , which is a way of talking around Marjorie, the absent figure that haunts his unveiled thoughts, as suggested by his failure to recognize his own reflection in the mirror and his determination to brush aside its blatant difference Finally, by dint of repetition — the same phrases said all over again, the same action of filling the glasses and drinking toasts performed again and again, so as to establish the reassuring order of a ritual — the situation is ripe.

Then Nick himself joins in and eventually warms to the idea or delusion that loss is not irremediable. The implication is that there is no evading the situation, the earlier scene has to be gone through again whether the protagonist wants it or not, repetition is unavoidable.

The purpose is to concede some gentle gratification to the obsessed suffering wretch but not to renew the trauma itself, to repeat the scene only to avoid representation.

It went away slowly, the feeling of disappointment that came sharply after the thrill that made his shoulders ache. It was all right now. The final repetition materializes the completed loop in the chiasmus of its arrangement, which makes it possible to initiate a backward process leading back to the happy moment before the loss, thus annihilating the turbulent intervening time.

In this case, phonic and lexical repetition serves to shape the negative area which brings out the unmentioned loss. The surgical instrument is removed out of sight and awareness. It is a symptom of the unmanageable experience of loss, which can only be approached gradually, tentatively through ever narrowing concentric circles. The ripples which break the surface of the narrative are indicative of the pent-up tension released as the threat lurking in the depths momentarily rises into sight.
