... with women. According to his first wife, Hadley Hemingway, Ernest is described as "having an instinctive habit of putting his own needs ahead of hers" (Kert 152). "[Hemingway] wanted the women in his life to. . . put him first, all the time, ahead of anything else" (Kert 389).

In the story, Ernest portrays the couple in a relationship in which the male has been dominant over his female counterpart at a moment when the future of that dominance seems in doubt. Ernests use of the word "girl" in contrast to "man" when referring to these individual characters demonstrates this thought. Af ...

These four subjects which have always fascinated Hemingway are fishing, hunting, bullfighting, and war, in which all have shown some type of international aspects.
