This paper takes a look at four famous short stories by Ernest Hemingway and explains how Hemingway uses the literature elements of character and environment as a means to develop the theme and intent of his stories. To illustrate this point, the short stories "Soldier's Home", "A Clean Well-Lighted Place," "A Farewell to Arms" and "The Sun Also Rises", are each examined in the paper.

From the Paper:

"At the beginning of "Soldier's Home," the protagonist, Harold Krebs, has just returned from the horror of World War I. Although his friends and associates who also came back from the war much earlier have once again settled into daily life in the small Oklahoma town, Krebs is restless and anxious, unable to readjust to civilian life. His parents cannot understand why he cannot resume a "normal" life--getting a job, getting married, and settling down into traditional middle-American life. The environment, which he cannot accept, stifles him. He cannot fit the mold."
