Hemingway, Ernest Miller - The Gambler, the Nun and the Radio
Interpretation einer englischsprachigen Kurzgeschichte
Earnest Hemingway (1899-1961) was one of the most important American writers.
Besides being an author, he also was a reporter and a war correspondent. In 1918 he volunteered for the American Field Service.
He was stationed at the North Italian border and the border between Germany and France, where he was seriously wounded.
The short story The Gambler, the Nun and the Radio was published in 1933. In it, Hemingway incorporates his own experiences during a stay in hospital in 1930, but abstracts from them and has his main character reflect upon the “opium for the people” with a radio as his only connection to the outside.Content:
