Theme of the story " the happy life of Francis Macomber by Ernest Hemingway "
The theme of feminism with sacrifice and burden associated characteristics are portrayed in Hemingway’s “the happy life of Francis Macomber”. “They are, he assumed, the toughest in the world; ……………. American females previously now because this was a very striking one.” (Hemingway 1403)
In fact, this is a very feminist story about the sacrifice and burden of a woman who was sentenced to death in the arms of a lion - men (this is not today's frail and degenerate feminism, trying to copy men, all their sins, no, it's something ancient with its virgin matriarchal , strong, when women worshiped the only deity - love, equally accepting them into their kingdom, in which men, these fluffy and sweet creatures, sweetly died at their feet at home, tamed, ended animals of Eden graceful horns near the forehead). "Margot was too beautiful for Macomber to divorce her and Macomber had too much money for Margot ever to leave him." (Hemingway 1402)
In fact, the superficial, narrative content of the story is very simple: Francis Macomber, one of those American rich people whose life from childhood is empty, idle, fruitless, shows cowardice while hunting a lion, and this allows his wife, Margaret, to continue to mock her husband, despise, cheat on him. But the next day, while hunting for buffalo, the fear passed, disappeared. Francis, without noticing it, overcame him. “He waited for the feeling that he experienced the day before to return, but it did not return. For the first time in his life, he really did not feel the slightest fear. Instead of fear, there was a clear sense of delight. The classic theme the murder for money, wealth, chosen by E. Hemingway, would seem banal if it were not solved with such artistic brilliance and skill, with such depth.
