The Nick Adams stories had been my favorite of the collection due to the fact I got to know Nick by way of the reading. I began to comprehend Nick and I could anticipate the actions and feelings that he was feeling. I am not positive if this is for the reason that I became familiar with Nick or because I have completed quite a few of the issues Nick has completed and was capable to have an understanding of what he was doing.
“Significant Two-Hearted River: Component I and II” were the most enjoyable short stories of the ones I read. The language that Hemingway uses is ideally suited for describing Nick’s activities by the river. Hemingway’s basic declarative sentences are all that is needed to convey the excellent scene of Nick struggling with his pack, setting up his tent, and cooking his meals. I have also done all the points that Nick was performing by the river and I was capable to recognize his satisfaction at pulling up a sound tent. Little sentences like “He was careful not to let the hook bite into his finger” convey so a great deal meaning to anyone who has ever tried to tighten a fishing hook on a line that you can only enable but nod your head in agreement.
