Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelberg (Anglistisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Proseminar Hemingway, 9 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ernest Hemingways Kurzgeschichte "A Clean, Well-Lighted Place," die zu den von der Literaturkritik meistbeachteten Werken Hemingways gehort, wurde im Marz 1933 erstmals im Scribner's Magazine veroffentlicht. Sie erschien im Herbst 1933 als Teil der Kurzgeschichtensammlung Winner take Nothing. Uber die Kurzgeschichte, die wohl zu Hemingways gelungensten Werken gezahlt werden kann, sagte Hemingway selbst einmal: "'Another time I was leaving out good was in 'A Clean, Well-Lighted Place.' There I really had luck. I left out everything.'" Dies mag der Grund sein, warum diese Kurzgeschichte, die von einem jungen und einem alten Kellner handelt, die darauf warten, dass ein alter Mann das Cafe verlasst, bei genauerem Hinsehen unerwartete Tiefen aufweisst. Gegenstand dieser Arbeit ist die Untersuchung der in der Kurzgeschichte auftretenden Hauptcharaktere und deren unterschiedliche Lebenshaltung. Des Weiteren wird die hiermit verbundene nada-Thematik der Kurzgeschichte und der individuelle Umgang der Figuren mit dem nada beleuchtet."

Page 12 - Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our debts, As we also have forgiven our debtors; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.

Page 9 - No," the waiter who was in a hurry said; rising from pulling down the metal shutters. "I have confidence. I am all confidence." "You have youth, confidence, and a job," the older waiter said. "You have everything." "And what do you lack?" "Everything but work.
Page 3 - A Clean, Well-Lighted Place." There I really had luck. I left out everything. That is about as far as you can go, so I stood on that one and haven't drawn to that since. I trust you follow me, gentlemen. As I said at the start, there is nothing to writing short stories once you get the knack of it. A story I can beat, and I promise you I will, is "The Undefeated.
