    Hopelessness of individual makes the humans go back from the realities. Though suicide is the subject the poem in its inner depth of contents felt beautiful. (Report) Reply

    Very blasé attitude towards suicide. Certainly helped his reputation for 'manliness'. (Report) Reply

    It is so sad that this was Hemingway's basic worldview. It drips from the majority of his poetry. It bears witness to the hopelessness that he felt and obviously it reflects his ultimate end. Such a void can only be filled by Jesus Christ. (Report) Reply
