Analysis of 40 line estract of A Sea Change by Ernest Hemingway
The first 200 words of this essay...
This forty line extract of the short story Sea Change, by Ernest Hemingway, was first published in the magazine This Quarter in 1931. The story is based on a conversation overheard in the Basque Bar in Saint-Jean-de Luz, France, and also on a three-hour conversation with Gertrude Stein, about lesbians. This short story is also connected with the story "Hills Like White Elephants," and is thus associated to the lost generation; in other words, young people that have come back from the war, and don't see any meaning in life anymore, and thus they follow the same circular activities. The story has also a special significance, because of the theme of homosexuality. Hemingway in fact had the suspicion that both his mother and first wife were involved in homosexual activities. The story, as in "Hills Like White Elephants," present a man and a woman having a delicate argument. In this story, the men and women from "Hills Like White Elephants" switch places; thus it is the woman now that is trying to convince the man by being nice to him and manipulative. Thus we can see how these two stories are very similar in the context.
