Cat In The Rain

The point of view Hemingway tells "Cat in the RainaE from is very sexist. Hemingway displays his sexist attitude in the short story when the man, George, compliments the woman saying, "You look pretty darn nice,aE (Hemingway 409), then in his next breath degrades her by telling her to "shut up and get something to read.aE (Hemingway 409). Hemingway's opposition to women is one of his notorious traits. Hemingway is also known to use little description in his works but rely confidently in the dialogue. In "Cat in the RainaE Hemingway balances both description and dialogue quite well. When describing the woman finding the cat, Hemingway writes:

The American wife stood at the window looking out. Outside right under their window a cat was crouched under one of the dripping green tables. The cat was trying to make herself so compact that she would not be dripped on. 'I'm going down to get that kitty,' the American wife said. 'I'll do it,' her husband offered from the bed. 'No, I'll get it. The poor kitty is out trying to keep dry under a table.'

Hemingway uses his description to give the reader a visual image
