"The Strange Country" - Compact all the run-ons, the simple dialogue, the brilliant inner thought processes, the Gertrue Stein inspired ethereal expressions and you have a messy climax of Hemingway's skill as a short story writer.

"I Guess Everything Reminds You Of Something" - Sad. The saddest yet...the story itself reeks of lost innocence; but not of a child.

"The Porter" - A sudden but subtle use of symbolism...I wonder if rain is meant to symbolize death in all of Hemingway's works.

"A Train Trip" - A nice little thriller bogged down by distracting run-ons and sprinkled with a dash of ethical hypocrisy.

"An African Story" - Stewardship differs from usary and dominance and does not isolate us above nature.

"The Last Good Country" - A great story, my favorite of the Nick Adams pieces thus far. Kinda pissed Hemingway didn't finish it.

"Summer People" - Rhythmic. The bliss of youthful summer with an odd hint of tension and uncertainty.

"A Man of The World" - Sympathy both withheld and unwelcome. The world produces both flaws and blessings and because of this men can always find common ground.
