Fishing is described as tragic on page 155 which is parallel to the way fishing is described earlier using the word “fun”. The things he does here affect the readers view of Nick. He does not want to fish and does so very begrudgingly and with complaints, making him appear more hesitant and inconsiderate than before. PART 2: Fun and funny are often used outside the range of their limited textbook definition. Hemmingway often uses words to express his opinion on the mood of a situation. Fun is often used almost sarcastically as an expression of discomfort, hardship or lack of freedom. It seems as if Hemmingway is almost making a joke out of the child-like notion of happy and innocent fun and giving his readers a reality check. This way of thinking about fun also helps create an understanding of the way Nick evolves as a character. Earlier his priorities are concerned with petty thoughts and worries about spending time with Marjorie and drinking. Now he has responsibility increased as the book progresses, and hardships ensue, which goes hand in hand with the use of the word fun as an expression of discomfort or hardship. Hemani 12
