Analysis of The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber by Ernest Hemingwa
Analysis of The go around Happy aliveness of Francis Macomber by Ernest HemingwayErnest Hemingway is kn witness for producing novels and short stories withambiguous endings. In his short story, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber, hedefinitely pees his readers guessing. The question is whether Margot kills her husband,Francis, intenion wholey, or if she apropos scares him in an effort to let off his life. There are many points that could be argued for both conclusions, but my observations have led me to believe that Margot did indeed shoot her husband intentionally, however, without pre-meditation.In looking at the background of Francis and Margot, it is easy to find oneself that thestrength of their relationship rests on their co-dependancy. They have two completely divers(prenominal) personalities, but that is what ultimately keeps their relationship at anequilibrium.Their marriage is summarized by the statement, Margot was also beautifulfor Macomber to divorce her, and Macomber had too much money for Margot ever toleave him. Margot has complete control over their marriage, and Francis allows her tohave this control because he could non find some other wife if Margot were to leave him. This is apparent when the narrator states, If he had been better with women, she wouldprobably have started to misgiving about him getting another new, beautiful wife but sheknew too much about him to worry about him either. The background information given about Francis and Margot makes a motivation foran intentional killing clear. When Margot sees the euphoria, loss of cowardice andsudden independance that Francis gets from his pursuit of the buffalo, she realizes thatshe has befuddled control over her husband. The change in Francis ca... ...age because she is no longer in charge of Francis or needed by him. She realizes that he has found his own independance and that she is expendable to him. Therefore, in a sudden rage of anger, resentment and disappoi ntment, she kills Francis. take down though I do believe that Margot means to kill her husband, I do not thinkthat it is a pre-meditated event. It appears that Margots original intention is to saveFrancis by shooting the buffalo. Of course, realistically, it would be hard to stop such an savage from a far distance, and it is difficult to believe that Margot thinks she could do it. When Margot aims the gun and prepares to fire, all the negative emotions that are built up inside her cause her to make the sudden decision to take her anger out on her husband. She may have only thought about it for a second, but ultimately, it was an intentional shot.
