The story of the soldier returning from a traumatic war experience and trying to find a way to come to terms with the small-town life he used to live, after being initiated into the adult world of the war including life and death, is an essential theme in Hemingway's writings. Part of the disillusionment that the character, Krebs, is met with has to do with his trouble in constructing or finding meaning in the concepts that he went to war for, which have now become empty to him: All of the time...   [tags: Soldier's Home Essays]

A Soldier's Home by Ernest Hemingway - A “Soldier’s Home” by Ernest Hemmingway is an intriguing story about a man by the name of Krebs who enlists in the Marine Corps during his attendance at a Methodist college in Kansas.

Reader-Response on Soldier's Home - Reader-Response on Soldier's Home The initial reaction I received from reading Soldier's Home, and my feelings about Soldier's Home now are not the same. Initially, I thought Harold Krebs is this soldier who fought for two years, returns home, and is disconnected from society because he is in a childlike state of mind, while everyone else has grown up. I felt that Krebs lost his immature years, late teens to early 20's, because he went from college to the military.

Soldier's Home - Soldier's Home He knew he could never get through it all again. "Soldier's Home" "I don't want to go through that hell again." In the works of Ernest Hemingway, that which is excluded is often as significant as that which is included; a hint is often as important and thought-provoking as an explicit statement. This is why we read and reread him. "Soldier's Home"is a prime example of this art of echo and indirection. Harold Krebs, the protagonist of "Soldier's Home," is a young veteran portrayed as suffering from an inability to readjust to society--Paul Smith has summarized previous critics on the subject of how Krebs suffers from returning to the familial, social, and religious"home"(...   [tags: Papers] 1005 words

Clearly this is no coincidence and Hasek is using the stories within a story to make comments upon each other, but what exactly are these comments.

Loss of soldier identity - The Vietnam War was not a “pretty” war. Soldiers were forced to fight guerilla troops, were in combat during horrible weather, had to live in dangerous jungles, and, worst of all, lost sight of who they were.

Producing Professional Recordings at Home - For most careers, sound is used as a medium for communicating thoughts, ideas, and important information. For this very reason, it is unlikely that you would ever see an office space with tall ceilings and hardwood floor—as people would be unable to clearly communicate with each other due to the echoic effects of the architectural structure. Instead, office spaces have relatively low ceilings and carpeted floor to reduce the number of reflections from a sound source. This allows our voices to be heard clearly for the intended audience—whether a cubicle neighbor, or a group of people in a conference room....   [tags: Home Sound Studios]
