A day’s wait and the lost generation

Today in class we read «A day’s wait» by Ernest Hemingway. The story is about a German boy who has a fever and an American dad. They are told by a doctor that he has 102 Fahrenheit. This scares the boy that thinks he is going to die because he is European and thinks it is degrees Celsius. Therefore the boy wanders a whole day thinking he is going to die.Relatert bilde

Ass a member of «the lost generation» he had was a troubled man. A man with alcohol problems and psychological problems. The generation became the lost generation because of the first world war. People did not talk about the war and there for the war-traumatized young men did not receive any help or support and ass a result they turned to the bottle. PTID was also known ass shell shook influenced the whole generation.
