Ernest Hemingway was one of the greatest American writers but he was also one of the worst in depicting life and women In his story Hemingway projects a male-dominated world in his fiction In fact the protagonists conform to the aggressively male stereotype so dear to Hemingway An important point that emerges from these love stories in that they usually depict the love-relationship as a failure All the stories that read none of them depicted a satisfactory lasting mutually shared love between a man and a woman The End of something for instance shows Nick breaking up his love affair with Marjorie In this story we came across the Hemingway protagonist withdrawing from a relationship after he had taken a step forwards forming it The conversion with his friend Bill at the end of the story indicates that it was preplanned First Nick tries to pick up a quarrel with Marjorie but she guesses that Nick is troubled by something else You dont have to talk silly Marjorie said Whats really the matter I dont know Of course you know No I dont Nick looked on at the moon coming up over the hills Its isnt fun any more He was afraid to look at Marjorie Then he looked at her She sat there with her back toward him He looked at her back It isnt fun any more Not any of it She didnt say anything Hw went on I feel as though everything was gone to hell inside of me I dont know Marge I dont know what to say No Nick said Marjorie stood up Nick sat there his head in his hands After Marjorie leaves Bill arrives and asks Nick if everything went well This indicates that they had planned this together But Nick asks Bill to leave him alone which shows that he does not feel some pain and that a conflict had existed in his mind
