- Hemingway: The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber - 2,106 words
Hemingway: The Short Happy Life Of Francis Macomber Ernest Hemingway was one of a group of artists in the inter-war period of the early twentieth century who was left mentally (and for Hemingway also physically) scarred by the total devastation he witnessed during and after the Great War. Gertrude Stein labeled Hemingway and his peers a Lost Generation, a famous phrase that only partially describes the detachment, confusion, instability, and distrust that these twenty- and thirty-somethings felt toward many of the traditional ways of life that had led to the brutal, total war which had eradicated much of the people of their age group. To cope with the feelings of meaninglessness and nothingn ...

... rgot's latest affair), Francis finds that, of all the many men that he had hated, he hated Robert Wilson the most. 20 The hatred Francis feels toward Wilson is not really hatred, but rather a type of jealousy and envy. Wilson, after all, was not afraid of the wounded lion and carried on his shauri without cowardice. Wilson, too, reaped the rewards of the hunt, in Margot's affection, which is the hard physical turning point for Francis; after Margot has proven her meaninglessness to Francis, he has no choice but to go on in the abysmal grasp of Margot or to make an effort to change everything about himself. Francis sees in Wilson what he would like to become, a man who can control the out ...

- Mother Courage And Her Children By Brecht - 365 words
Mother Courage And Her Children By Brecht In 1939, on the eve of the Nazi Holocaust, the great German playwright Bertolt Brecht wrote Mother Courage and Her Children. For the setting of his play, he chose the Thirty Years' War, the senseless 17th century European conflict that pitted Protestants against Catholics and laid waste to whole lands and peoples.
