‘Cat in the Rain’ by Ernest Hemingway | Analysis

Ernest Hemingway’s story “Cat in the Rain” is a short story which depicts the relationship between an American couple which was affected by the consequences of the war period and they continued their existence facing the problem of misunderstanding and loneliness in a marriage.

The write could emphasize the faintness of this cat to overcome the situation, the rain. It is unclear why the writer chose the cat.

His choice might be commented that possibly he could compare the cat with the baby for whom the wife may want to devote her time and attention.

The “cat” might have been the symbol of the wife’s loneliness caused by the fact that her husband was incapable to understand her feelings. In other words, she probably needed more attention and compassion from the part of her husband.
