Her husband, however, seems to be terribly annoyed by her and not interested at all. Eventually, the cat is delivered to her room by a maid at the request of the hotelkeeper. These images altogether make it easy to consider the story as an episode of marriage crisis. However, I want to argue that Hemingway conveyed in the story has much to do with the feminist consciousness. We can feel depression and isolation of the American wife from the very beginning of the story.
And I want it to be spring and I want to brush my hair out in front of a mirror and I want a kitty and I want some new clothes.” The man is just relaxing, minding his own business, and reading a book. He is reading a book throughout the whole story. Hemmingway stresses that the American wife “liked the hotel-keeper.” The woman acts as if she wants to rescue a cat that is in the rain, but in reality she is just making an excuse to see the hotel-keeper. She was so persistent about going after the cat even after her husband offered to go. Even though the female in this story is married, she likes the hotel-keeper.
Cat in the Rain – Critique/Summary Summary: The story “Cat in the Rain” written by Ernest Hemingway is about a couple that stay in Italy. The woman in the story sees a cat abandoned outside in the rain under a table and wants to get him and bring him into her hotel room. When she finally convinces her husband to let her go out and get him, it is gone. She returns to the room with out a cat and her husband is still propped up on a pillow reading his book. He insists she lay down and read a book, when she starts talking about how much she wants a cat, how she wants it to be sitting in her lap as she brushes her hair.
These images can be read as symbols for the woman's suppressed memories, memories of losing a child. In 'The Cat in the Rain", a woman is eager to catch a cat outside in the rain ("I wanted that poor kitty" p. 34, l. 64-65), a symbol for attention and compassion, things she doesn't get from her husband. When the American wife expresses her wish for attention with expressions like "I want to have a kitty"(p. 35, l. 8), "I want to eat at a table with my own silver" (p. 35 l. 11) and "I want some new clothes" (p.35. l. 13), he simply responds with "Oh, shut up and get something to read"

In this paper I will examine how the role of traditional Chinese culture plays in martial arts films. I will be focusing on the scene that incorporates Beijing Opera in King Hu’s ‘Come Drink with Me’. ‘Come Drink With Me’ is a pretext martial arts film on the surface as King Hu’s desire was to create a movie that modernized traditional Chinese culture.

Hu used the traditional aspects of Beijing Opera to stylistically enhance and dramatize the scene.
