Nick Adams was the hero of Hemingway’s first work and the prototype of such later Hemingway heroes as Jake Barnes, Frederic Henry, and Harry Morgan. In fact, this Hemingway hero is the original anti-hero, the hard-boiled loner whose stoic motto is One Must Endure. This program analyzes Hemingway’s life, major novels, and famous style: that superb and concise diction that is perhaps his finest gift to our literature. The DVD includes a printable teacher guide featuring reproducible handouts, activities, exercises, vocabulary words, and other related materials. 18 minutes. Recommended for grades 8-12.
