Sample text

Early in the story, he notes how the heat has humped and swollen the bodies of the dead soldiers. The sun causes “heat-waves in the air above the leaves where [it] hit . . ” One of the keys to understanding this confusing, short sketch is Hemingway’s focus on Nick’s identity. Nick is officially questioned when he reaches the battalion of Italian soldiers camped along the Piave River. The soldier who reads Nick’s identification card is clearly not convinced that Nick is a bona fide soldier despite the fact that Nick says that he knows the Italian soldier’s captain.

Hemingway explores older men’s loneliness by using the older waiter as a sounding board for the elderly man’s defense. Although the elderly man is without a companion or anyone waiting at home for him, he indulges his lapses from reality in a dignified and refined manner, expressed in his choosing of a clean, well-lighted place in the late hours of the night. The importance of the clean, well-lighted place where one can sit is integral to maintaining dignity and formality amidst loneliness, despair and desperation.

Nick does indeed know Captain Paravicini—for the same reason that Hemingway took pleasure in making friends with highranking Italian officers: American Red Cross volunteers were free to fraternize with Italian officers. Although glad to talk to the captain about the success of the last attack, Nick is self-conscious and restless. He’s aware that the captain knows that Nick’s head wound and battle trauma have changed him, and thus he uses humor to keep their talk from centering too keenly on himself.
