stubborn
Manuel Garcia climbed the steps of Don Miguel Ritana’s office. He dropped his suitcase and knocked on the door. No answer. Manuel felt someone in the room. He lost that feeling behind the door.
“Ritana,” he shouted. And he listened.
No answer.
“I know he’s in the room,” Manuel said under his breath. »
He slammed the door and said, “Ritana. »
Someone in the office replied, “Who are you?” »
“Me!” Said Manuel. Manolo. »
“What do you want?” Asked the voice. »

– I want to work.
A key turned in the lock. The door opened once. Manuel took the suitcase.
A small man was sitting behind a table at the bottom of the room. The head of a cow was stuffed on top of his head. It was a taxi ride in Madrid.
Framed photos and bullfighting boards can be seen all around the room.
The petite man was watching Manuel.
“I thought you were killed,” he said. »
Manuel tapped his finger on the table. The man did not take his eyes off him.
“How many games did you have this year?” Ritana asked. »

“Only one,” he replied. »
“Was it just one?” Said the petite man. »
– Yes, it was just the same.
“I read the news in the newspaper,” Ritana said. »
He leaned back in his chair and stared at Manuel.
Manuel looked at the cow’s head. He had seen it a lot before. He had a kind of family relationship with it. That cow had killed her brother nine years ago, who was considered the eyes and beacon of friends. Manuel will never forget that day. There was a brass plaque on the oak stump under the cow’s head. Manuel could not read it, but he thought it might be his brother’s memorial. The baby was a good kid.

Introducing the book Men without Women by Ernest Hemingway
Men Without Women is the second in a series of short stories by Ernest Hemingway, published in 1927, which presents some of his most important early writings. In these fourteen short stories, Ernest Hemingway evaluates themes that can be seen in his later works, such as war damage, difficult relationships between men and women, and sports and championships.

These brilliant stories include “Stubborn”, “What does the homeland say to you”, “Hills like a white elephant”, “Assassins”, “Fifty thousand dollar race”, “In another country”, “An anecdote” From “Alps”, “Speed ​​Race”, “Ten Indians”, “Today is Adineh”, “Simple Interrogation”, “I’m Lying Down Now”, “Souvenir Canary” and “A Trivial Story”.
“Men without Women” was a turning point in Ernest Hemingway’s career. He had previously proven himself to be a powerful and exceptional novelist, but with these short stories, he showed how to recreate a scene of absolute truth and bring details to life in a few pages. Which can only be seen by the keen eyes of a talented and unique artist.

The men in the stories of Ernest Hemingway are bullfighters and boxers, novices and mercenaries and alcoholics, gangsters and guns. Each of the stories in “Men Without Women” refers to a masculine stubbornness that has not been touched by the delicacy of a woman’s hands. The prose of the book is decisive, powerful and unemotional, summed up in a minimal way and is in the realm of Ernest Hemingway’s classics.

Excerpts from Men Without Women (text pleasure)

Manuel Garcia climbed the steps of Don Miguel Ritana’s office. He dropped his suitcase and knocked on the door. No answer. Manuel felt someone in the room. He lost that feeling behind the door. “Ritana,” he shouted. And he listened. No answer.

“I know he’s in the room,” Manuel said under his breath. “Knock on the door,” she said. “Who are you?” Someone in the office replied. “Me!” Said Manuel. Manolo. “What do you want?” Asked the voice. I want to work. A key turned in the lock. The door opened once. Manuel took the suitcase. A small man was sitting behind a table at the bottom of the room. The top of his head was stuffed with cow dung.

It was a taxi ride in Madrid. Framed photos and bullfighting boards can be seen all around the room.

The petite man was watching Manuel. “I thought you were killed,” he said. Manuel tapped his finger on the table. The man did not take his eyes off him. “How many games did you have this year?” Ritana asked. “Only one,” he replied. “Was it just one?” Said the petite man. – Yes, it was just the same.

“I read the news in the newspaper,” Ritana said. He leaned back in his chair and stared at Manuel. Manuel looked at the cow’s head. He had seen it a lot before. He had a kind of family relationship with it. That cow had killed her brother, who was considered the eyes and beacon of friends, nine years ago. Manuel will never forget that day. There was a brass plaque on the oak stump under the cow’s head. Manuel could not read it, but he thought it might be his brother’s memorial. The baby was a good kid.
