Description

First published in 1927, Men Without Women represents some of Hemingway's most important and compelling early writing. In these 14 stories, Hemingway begins to examine the themes that would occupy his later works: the casualties of war, the often uneasy relationship between men and women, sport and sportsmanship.

In "Banal Story", Hemingway offers a lasting tribute to the famed matador Maera. "In Another Country" tells of an Italian major recovering from war wounds as he mourns the untimely death of his wife. "The Killers" is the hard-edged story about two Chicago gunmen and their potential victim. Nick Adams makes an appearance in "Ten Indians," in which he is presumably betrayed by his Indian girlfriend, Prudence. And "Hills Like White Elephants" is a young couple's subtle, heartwrenching discussion of abortion. Pared down, gritty, and subtly expressive, these stories show the young Hemingway emerging as America's finest short story writer.

Outdated but not in a charming way

narration is flat. the short stories I did fully comprehend I did like. but one or two were just confusing. the bull fighting and boxing ones were quite entertaining. Hemmingway is at his best when he does story like those. but hills like white elephants was very disappointing and yes I understood what it was about. it needed more backstory like most of them to give the reader the full emotional effect. also the one about the roman soldiers made me angry. why were they speaking like the gangster in the previous story. but overall I was the portrayal of native and African Americans that soured my feeling on this collection of tales. they are a snapshot in time and we have progressed societally to much. its best not to use this as your time machine.
