Analysis of “A Clean Well

a clean lighted place

I enjoyed how absurd everything seems but is not, there's no real conflict or an objective or any resolution but then as the writer said- nada y pues nada y nada y pues nada Just another nocturnal scene involving a couple of otro loco mas insomniacs, how they differ or relate to one another and to this old gaffer, who seems nonchalant, high and cares about nothing. A story about three men at different states of their lives; two waiters of a cafe one young, one older and an old man as a customer. They are both keeping watch of their last customer, an old man who drinks to excess, and discussing the fact that he had tried to commit suicide. I have never had confidence and I am not young. After high school he reported for a few months for The Kansas City Star, before leaving for the Italian front to enlist with the World War I ambulance drivers. This particular short story seems to have been popular for its treatment of the Lord's Prayer, but I am spellbound by Hemingway's ability to shake loose a raft of emotions in such a short space.

Maybe it is his self-centredness I identify with - I am not sure - but I seem to be able to identify with all of the chara I've always had a nagging thought that short stories were a cop-out for an author of novels - a bit like a media article compared to a journal article or a monograph for an academic. For him, the cafe is just a place where he comes to earn his livelihood. In terms of imagery, the story uses a number of contrasts to enhance its philosophical meaning: youth and age, darkness and light, cleanness and filthiness, noise and quiet, and nature shadows of leaves and manmade objects coffee machine.

What is also interesting at the end of the story is that though the older waiter is lonely he still reaches out in some ways to others. Hemingway didn't say what has happened to the latter after the young waiter who wants to go home already and sleep refused him another drink and drove him away. Like the old customer and the old waiter in the story, many of us long for a place or state of being of safety and comfort i.

Literary Analysis: ‘A Clean Well

a clean lighted place

The cafe with its bright interiors attracts the deaf man and the old waiter towards it, and the reason behind this attraction conveys the message of the author.
