Hemingway, Ernest: The Killers

去年初读海明威的短篇The Killers ,有些不知所云。 而今再读,有了一些不一样的理解。故事简单,却别有深意。

弥漫着一种悲凉。 原来这个故事,不是讲两个杀手来杀人,也不是讲Ole 前仇怎样,而是讲面对邪恶时人性的展现。 不管怎样,年轻的 Nick 是有勇气的, 他不惧危险去通知Ole,而面对 Ole 的不抗争, Nick 的英雄主义就有了一种幻灭之感。

How one reacts to evil is ultimately more important than the evil itself.

(GGB, Vol. 2, pp. 169-177)
