I feel like Hemingway has really captured a visual world in Cat in the Rain. How about you? Was there any image that really captured your imagination? I love that something like the cat under the chair in the rain can be so simply done and yet seems so real.

Having read through the story again with my daughter, I was struck by the gorgeous description of the square. It is alive in the rain, with it's palm trees and brightly colored hotels and Cafes and puddles and the miserable little cat under the table. I've been places like that, and the picture Hemingway conjures takes me right back to the places I have been.

Wow, brad! i see it that way too. even tho i knew it was a european setting, it hit me that it could be KEY WEST , which i've been to kand loved so much. i think hemingway loved tropical type climate,and palm trees because of where he chose to live most of his life. he liked the resort type lifestyle, and writes of it often.
