But even then, she never knew what was going on. Once she moved to a bigger town and attended a larger school, she did not have to show an interest in sports. Due to that, the author ignored sports completely. When the author grew older, she dated an Atlanta Falcons fan. So once again, she pretended to care about football.
While at war, Krebs mother says “I’ve worried about you so much, Harold” (Hemingway, 1925, p. 121). In the Lake of the Woods, Wade is never considered a hero. Kathy is not supportive of him at all, while at war or returning from war. An example of this is when Kathy writes Wade a letter stating she is dating other people but will marry him upon his return. The feeling remains the same
“If something in life hurts you in life, use it in your writing.” This quote is by Ernest Hemingway, and he made this statement apparent when he wrote his book, “A Farewell to Arms.” In this novel there are many similarities between Hemingway and the main character Fredrick Henry. Once Ernest Hemingway enlisted into the war and was deferred because of his poor vision he became an ambulance driver as did Fredrick in the book. While running a mobile canteen he was hit by a mortar fire and was injured from the waist down. Other similarities include how both Hemingway and Fredrick were not close to their family at all, and how they both fell in love with a nurse while in the hospital for their injures. “Farewell to arms” is an exemplification of his love life as well as his war life as an ambulance driver in World War I.
He attended various "male seminaries" but did not study at Columbia College, as did his brothers. He practiced law intermittently during his life, but it was never a passion for him, as writing was to become. He fell in love with his mentor's daughter, Matilda Hoffman. They eventually were engaged to marry, but Matilda died before their nuptials, and Irving remained a bachelor, though his name was linked romantically with other women in later years (Steck para 3).

He can compare to Dr. John W. Fields because they each suffered from a separation due to slavery. John Fields was separated from his mother at a very young age as Big Sam was separated from Scarlet, but they were reunited after the war as John Fields was never reunited with his family. A way John Fields can compare to Mammy is he had a mind of his own, and wanted to learn and be an individual, and not just a slave. Mammy was lost and the only way of life she knew was being a slave, and caring for her white owners. She never really pursued any type of learning and her mind was “too simple, and not evolved enough” for her to pursue an education of any sort.

His parents divorced when he was 4 years of age, and it was then when he went to live with his maternal grandmother, which to him, was a human deserving of all things great, and overall too good for this world. (Feist & Feist, 2009) Eysenck grew up with very little parental discipline, as his parents really didn’t care what he did or didn’t do, and his grandmother was rather permissive. In our book, the author quotes Eysenck telling a story of how he told his grandmother he was going to buy a pack of cigarettes expecting to be apprehended, and was startled when his grandma granted this behavior.

The author points out that the girl was forced to stay outside from her father to sell matches, " …for she had not sold any matches and could not bring a farthing of money: from her father she would certainly get blows…" (Anderson 2).
