his class. 18.02.2021 Hemingway introduces three different characters. First is schatz, who thinks due to the doctor that he is going to die soon, but he shows heroism by not showing that. second we get to know the father who first noticed the misunderstanding between him and his son. Last we get to know the doctor, if only very briefly, who does what a doctor usually does, namely help the ill ones by getting them medicines. But also the doctor is kind of guilty for the misunderstanding, because ne had not told the son if it's celsius or Fahrenheit. In this short story Hemingway uses the father as narrator of the story and makes use of the first-person - narrator. He continues using long sentences for describing and short sentences for the dialogues. His dialogues are written very realistic so it is a method of characterization. Since the father is the first person narrator we just get to know his point of view and not the son's. Hemingway still makes it possible for us to dig into the son The atmosphere is dark and sad, because in his bed, but the son thinks that ne is going to die. The setting is almost only the son once it changes, when the first person narrator goes for a walk. TO conclude I think it is important to know now not idiking directly with each other can ledd to a misunderstanding, which can lead to real consequences refering to this story, the son thinks ne is going to die while his father thinks that he just got an disease. To dda is that the son shows heroism, because he has no fear of dying.
