Hemingway's Soldier's Home, A Reflection of the Era

A 6 page essay that discusses Hemingway's "Soldier's Home" and how it reflected the era. America's youth trooped off to World War I, wide-eyed and innocent, boys from small towns with high ideals and a concept of war as noble and worthwhile. They returned disillusioned and scarred, not only in their bodies, but also in their minds. This alienation was widespread and prevalent throughout the 1920s, which is the era in which Ernest Hemingway wrote the poignant short story "Soldier's Home." This narrative perfectly reflects this era, as it addresses a young veteran who finds that he has no common ground with the people he left behind in his small town and that the gulf of experience between them is too vast to be breached. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

Dysfunction In Hemingway's Soldier's Home

The story, Soldier's Home, by Ernest Hemingway is one of the shortest of short stories: five pages. However, he has managed to pack at least a novella's worth of meaning into those five pages. This 5 page paper argues that the emphasis Krebs (the protagonist) puts on his life in the military can be seen as a defense mechanism to dealing with his relationship with his family. The lies he tells are the thread that binds the two segments of the story and Harold's life. Once he has made that connection (telling the lie to his mother), he can no longer use the war as his sanctuary. Bibliography lists 7 sources.
