In the 1900s there was a man who went by the name of Ernest Hemingway. He was highly affected by culture and human nature. Ernest Hemingway lived his life with hatred towards his mother, and disliked the fact that his father wasn’t the “man of the house.” Ernest Hemingway’s younger life affected how he lived his life when he grew up to become and independent man.

He hated it when his mother would make him wear dresses, and his father wouldn’t say anything about it. One of his short stories is called “the Undefeated.” This short story is about a man who has grown old, and he doesn’t want to admit it. He wants to still be a bullfighter even if the other people tell him that he is already old. Culture is a bunch of different traditions that can form your life.
