Hemingway Story Analysis

Based on the stories I studied in the collection The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway, it seems Ernest Hemingway had a very naturalistic and pessimistic view of life. His stories often emphasize gruesome violence and tragic deaths or the pain the world has to offer in different places, such as lifelong shortcomings of character or tumultuous relationships. Naturalism is evident in that characters are never the masters of their fate. For good or for bad the world does not let on what’s in...
