    Harry remembers taking the carcass into town with the chore boy's help, who thought he was going to be rewarded for protecting his master's property, but to his amazement, was arrested and handcuffed. Kikuyu a member of a Kenya tribe. The administrator is interested in the Mexican and talks a good deal with him. He talks tough and rough, and to the point. This is one difference between major work and minor work.

    But he has one of his spells bought on by the lasting effects of his having been gassed. Harry recalls his grandfather's log house that burned and destroyed all of his grandfather's guns, and how even though it was rebuilt, his grandfather never bothered to get more guns and never hunted again. Next, his thoughts wander to beating the fear of death, and the limits of being able to bear pain. That was when the chore boy got a rifle, shot the man, and left him for the dogs to eat. During the day, the ugly vultures gather around the camp; the putrid, foul smell of Harry's rotting, gangrenous flesh attracts them.

    Scott Fitzgerald. His time is being wasted waiting for something, someone to "save" him. I worry that it might make me look as though I'm just jealous, when really I am. This is the second one of the three important deeds of his life that facilitates his flight over Kilimanjaro at the end of the story. Uneasily, he recalls a boy who'd been frozen, his body half-eaten by dogs, and a wounded officer so entangled in a wire fence that his bowels spilled over it. And ''A Very Short Story'' does deal with the disintegration of a wartime relationship, if highly unconvincingly and crowned with amusingly shocking surprise ending out of the blue.

Harry's second memory sequence then begins. I am a victim of illusions. The feelings are mutual all round. Close to the western summit there is The Snows of Kilimanjaro and Other Stories book dried and frozen carcas of a leopard.

In this case, as with other of Hemingway's heroes, we have a writer, Harry, who never writes what he has wanted to; now it is too late. Harry reviews his life, realizing that he wasted his talent through procrastination and luxury from a marriage to a wealthy woman that he doesn't love. Here, the vulture and the hyena dominate Harry's sure knowledge of his inevitable death.

If he were able to write one perfect paragraph, one last time, he could "get it right. And the oppressive atmosphere of violence, hopelessness and death comes off rather vividly, especially with the vacuous dialogue as a counterpoint.

There are some crude and confused moments, but the former are put to a fine dramatic use and the latter occur but seldom. There is little to the story, but Hemingway vividly captures the sight and spirit of the front line and the horrors of war and its injuries.

He waits; after Helen leaves, he'll drink all he wants. Loss of lives from war, and loss of life due to despair and adverse financial circumstances. I really liked "A Clean Well Lighted Place" and how skillfully the characters of the two waiters were portrayed.

With everything and with women. He remembers the railway station in Karagatch, Turkey, and leaving on the famous Orient Express and riding through northern Greece, where he recalled fighting between the Greeks and Turks during the Greco-Turko war that Hemingway, when he was a reporter, covered.

Anatolia the great plains area of Turkey. However, even at this point, he realizes that Helen does really love him whether he really loves her, and he sees that she is a good, honest woman. The dead, preserved leopard can be seen as a symbol of immortality, a reward for taking the difficult road.

This is the second one of the three important deeds of his life that facilitates his flight over Kilimanjaro at the end of the story. He constantly returns to ideas he has for things he needs to write and memories of his life in Paris, Istanbul and other places.

He has many memories of his father, hunting and fishing, and of the local Indian children he played with. You'd see a sign that only read "Books" and through the door with its little bell above, there would be stacks as high as the ceiling and shelves where the word unkempt wouldn't do to describe.

Review will shown on site after approval. I see all of the above in many of the characters and stories in this collection. The old fellow is a bit drink, drinking cognac one after the other. Here, in this story, the symbolism of Kilimanjaro is contrasted with the symbolism of the plains.

His time is being wasted waiting for something, someone to "save" him.
