Review: SOLDIER’S HOME by Ernest Hemingway

The Reading Life recently read and reviewed the short story “Soldier’s Home” by Ernest Hemingway for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s a sample:

Hemingway wrote a lot of stories and longer works that deal with war.  “Soldier’s Home” is about a man, not as young as he was when he left, back in Kansas after serving in the USA Army during WWI.  It is told in the third person in a minimalist style.  There are only three on stage characters in the story.  Harold Krebs comes home deeply troubled by his war experiences.  This story line maybe a cliche now but I do not think it was in 1925.
