The famous Nick Adams stories show a memorable character growing from child to adolescent to soldier, veteran, writer, and parent - a sequence closely paralleling the events of Hemingway's life."But," as Philip Young writes in the preface, "Hemingway naturally intended his stories to be understood and enjoyed without regard for such considerations - as they have been for a long time."
