Cat in the Rain`(by Ernest Hemingway)

The text Cat in the Rain was written by Ernest Hemingway. Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 July 2, 1961) was an American author and journalist.Hemingway produced most of his work between the mid-1920s and the mid-1950s, and won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. . He published seven novels, six short story collections and two non-fiction works. Three novels, four collections of short stories and three non-fiction works were published posthumously. Many of these are considered classics of American literature. Hemingway was raised in Oak Park, Illinois. After high school he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. In 1918, he was seriously wounded and returned home. This text about an American couple which stopped at the hotel ,they came there because wanted to see the war monument.In a rainy day, the American wife stood near at the window and were looking out, she saw a crouched cat.And she went out to take it because she wanted it very much.The cat was her biggest wish at the moment.So she went out but the cat wasn`t under the greeny table. When she returned back her sadness was observed by the receptionist who was Italian and whose way of being , she liked very much.When she returned back in your room ,her husband asked where is the cat and she said him that the cat was gone.She talked alone and her husband didn`t attracte any attention.Suddenly,someone knocked at the door,it was the maid,she brought a big cat and said that cat was from hotel-keeper for the American-wife.The theme of this text is `The Loneliness`. I think that the idea of this text is loneliness mustn`t be in your life,if it exist,we must do any changes because nobody will be nothing for us.We must do our life more beautiful and more dynamic. In `Cat in the Rain` the main character is American-wife.She is dynamic character because in my opinion ,the wife,hag more emotions,bun didn`t have a person which she can it offer,especially she didn`t have children,her husband rarely paid to her attention and she wanted to give all this emotions to somebody ,has a refuge ,a relief. The husband is the static character because he do nnot change during the course of the story(He was on the bed reading).Also American-wife is a direct character because the writer simply tells what a character is like and what she wanted for example of our text(`She liked the hotel/keeper.She liked the deadly serious way he recived any complaints.She liked the way he

wanted to serve her.She liked the way felt about being a hotel-keeper.She liked his old,heavy face and big hands`,also she wanted new clothes,and she want a kitty`). I didn`t like this text because, in my opinion a couple need to be always together and listen each other.
