Snows of Kilimanjaro and Killers

4 April 2015
A paper analyzing several characters from two of Hemingway’s novels, Snows of Kilimanjaro and Killers.

The author of this paper analyzes several characters in Ernest Hemingway’s novels, “Snows of Kilimanjaro” and “Killers”. The paper touches on the semi-autobiographical character of the novels, especially of the characters analyzed.
“In his biography of Hemingway, Kenneth S. Lynn, states that “The Killers” has obvious influences of Hemingway’ s firsthand knowledge of small-time criminals in Kansas City (Berman, 1999). The story takes place in Henry’s lunchroom. Hemingway’s famous character Nick Adams is there, George is behind the counter, Sam, the cook, is in the kitchen and in walks in Al and Max, two hoodlums from Chicago sent to find and kill Ole Anderson, an ex-boxer (Hemingway, 1926). Although the dialogue of Al and Max takes up most of the story, Ole seems the main character even though we don’t meet him until the end of the story.”
