Snows Of Kilimanjaro

Decent Essays
In “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” by Earnest Hemingway, Harry portrays as a Hemingway hero. After he refuses to apply iodine to a scratch while on an adventure in the wilderness, Harry discovers that he has developed gangrene. Laying on his cot, he is reminded of all of the adventures he has taken and all of the ones he wishes he could take. He wants to appear brave and tough to hide his true emotions from his wife by making scornful commentary and mocking the fact that he is dying. Hemingway uses stream of consciousness to project that he is fully aware of the fact that he is dying and reflects on his memories. “…he could remember how the people were at different times…and it was his duty to write of it; but now he never would.” (9) Recalling
