In Another Country Essay

1026 words - 5 pages

Soldiers not only suffer in the battlefield. Veterans often need long term care owing to the physical
and psychological impacts of war. A good example of this, is the narrator in Ernest Hemingway’s story
“In Another Country” . He tells us not so much about the war itself but the aftermath. About what it has
done to his whole being. Living with its memory, the memory that made him so afraid because of the
damage that it caused him. So damaged, that it scares him too much to even think about going back

the sad irony or reality that maybe he can never be truly healed until he heard the Italian major dispels
the possibility that his hand will recover.
He also talks about his psychological battle, “In the fall the war was always there, but we did not go to it
anymore. It was cold in the fall in Milan and the dark came very early. Then the electric lights came on,
and it was pleasant along the streets looking in the windows. There was much game hanging outside the
shops, and the snow powdered in the fur of foxes and the wind blew their tails. The dear hung stiff and
heavy and empty, and small birds blew in the wind and the wind turned their feathers. It was a cold fall
and the wind came down from the mountains.” He tells us what is going through his mind. Almost
