ON the Techniques Used by Hemingway In

Cat in the Rain

1. Introduction

Ernest Miller Hemingway (July 21, 1899 – July 2, 1961) was an American novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. Nicknamed “Papa”, he was part of the 1920s expatriate community in Paris known as “the Lost Generation”, as described in his memoir A Moveable Feast. He led a turbulent social life, was married four times, and allegedly had various romantic relationships during his lifetime. For a serious writer, he achieved a rare cult-like popularity during his lifetime. Hemingway received the Pulitzer Prize in 1953 for The Old Man and the Sea. He received the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1954. During his later life, Hemingway suffered from increasing physical and mental problems. In July 1961, he committed suicide by shooting himself. The representative works of his stories are The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, The Sun Always Rises, A Farewell to Arms and For Whom the Bell Tolls, etc. In 1925. Hemingway published his first collection of fifteen short stories, including Cat in the Rain In our time, his colloquial and economical style of writing with the powerful effect began to catch readers’ attention (Wang 2003). Hemingway’s finite world may imply a broader world, his succinct style can be expressed accurately as a tool to express implied meaning. (Dong 35)

Naomi Grant said: “Hemingway has been a kind of silent sympathy to those social neglect, discrimination or ill-treatment of women.” (Grant 14)Cat in the Rain is a successful short story in Hemingway. It’s famous for connotation and obscurity. The story is told in the third person point of view, which is full of images, therefore, Freud says that symbolic association of idea depends on the desire of individuals.(Todorov 32)The American wife has no name, and the writer gives her different situations. Hemingway vividly describes the whole process of the awakening of women’s consciousness. As one of few short stories of Hemingway, Cat in the Rain has received wide attentions and been studied from different perspectives. The overseas study of this story can be classified into the following aspects: woman’s living situation, woman’s struggle in patriarchal society and the awakening of women’s consciousness. Susan F. Beegel, the writer of The Hemingway Review, said: “Feminist suddenly turned to Hemingway’s study, and have a positive impact.”1. She thought the impact of feminism to Hemingway’s is as same amazing and direct as the impact of Vietnam War. 2. The

achievements of Hemingway’s studies in China are also splendid, such as professor Dai Guiyu pointed: “Hemingway is a man who has feminism.3.” “And he is also a bisexual angel writer.”4. Domestic scholars have pointed out, the rain cat symbolizes the patriarchal society,“women lost consciousness …… cat escaping the rain implies a woman escaping the shackles of traditional gender roles.”(Zhou and Liu 14)5.
