A New Kind of War / In Another Country
Transcript of A New Kind of War / In Another Country
A New Kind of War
Hemingway is once again in battle, this time in the Spanish Civil War. He explains that it is never really safe in war. That death, and destruction are common. He is hurt again. His commander comes to check on him, and both the commander and Hemingway act as if the injury was nothing. They talk of friends and there injuries like they were nothing. I feel as if the main underlying point in this story is that war makes you an emotionally cold person. (Hotels)
Ideas prevalent in each story
Both of the short stories show that Hemingway had a rough life. It also confirms what was earlier said about him experiencing these events first hand, as he was there.
Both stories show him being injured, and comparing those around him. These two stories show that War is a serious matter, and eventually you get accustomed to it.
Chris Kyle and Ernest Hemingway
In Another Country
This short story was about a different side of the war than just the fighting, it was about the recovery. A man is inside of the medical division, talking to doctor. They discuss their lives before the war (WWI). He had been hurt badly in the leg, and was only 18 years old. The doctor and him discuss his future, and all of the sacrifices everyone has made. Men frequently come up and tell him and the Doc what they have lost. One man even says his wife has just died. The story is basically about sacrifices that must be made for the greater good, no matter what that may be.

The Impact on American Literature Today
"Why must a man not marry?"
"He cannot marry. He cannot marry." he said angrily. "If he is to lose everything, he should not place himself in a position to lose that. He should not place himself in a position to lose. He should find things he cannot lose."
I feel as is Ernest Hemingway paved the way
for war stories throughout American Literature.
His stories were successful, both because he was also a journalist, but also because they were real.
He shows that there is no war story writing like an authentic story from someone there. A primary resource is key, is what he has showed us.
