Hemingways style in Soldiers Home is short and to the point illustrating his unique code the conduct that his main character develops to deal with the reality of a broken world Embodying Hemingways code is the Hemingway hero who controls his actions and emotions enduring his wound and performing mindless tasks so that he will not break down In Soldiers Home Hemingway embodies his unique style code and hero in his main character Krebs One page 2219 in the fourth paragraph there is an unmistakable absence of adjectives and the few adjectives that are evident lack connotation The adjectives are external objective and almost reporter-like revealing an absence of complication The parallel sentence pattern consists of many simple few compound and almost no complex sentences The first two sentences in this paragraph convey the emotional complexity that the main character Krebs was trying to deal with Krebs embodies the Hemingway hero exuding a cool detachment that the audience needs to read into below the surface The language is non-emotional but Krebs himself is in an emotional turmoil that no one else can see It is even hard for him to see because of the detachment that he feels from himself Using the simplistic style to convey his inner turmoil is a way of showing the reader that there are no words big enough to explain how he feels so it is better to let the smaller words do the talking The theme of the fragmented self is set off by Hemingways simplistic style This is apparent when the narrator describes how Krebs made it back from war too late stating that By the time Krebs returned to his hometown in Oklahoma the greeting of heroes was over 2218 Omitting the fact that it was hurtful to Krebs that he got no enthusiastic welcome home even though he enlisted instead of being drafted exemplifies Hemmingways unique style It makes the reader seem even more sorry
