...hows a perfect example of his emphasis on male courage and by looking at Beegels and Stafford’s articles, we can see why Hemingway wrote this story. All throughout “A Day’s Wait,” we can see the hidden textual clues, pointed out by Susan Beegel, that Hemingway writes in order to show his importance towards male bravery. Through Norman E. Stafford, we see that Hemingway had a forever fear towards being sick. From Hemingway’s heavy emphasis on stoicism against death and his interminable fear of being sick, we bring up the conclusion that Hemingway likes to create characters that display no fear of death and follow the male code of courage. Using the male code of courage, Hemingway would create icons of men that would appeal to all readers and himself, which is why he emphasized so much on male courage. These aspects explain why he would continuously write about fear.
