Hi Readers,
looking forward to seeing some of you again and meeting others for the first time.
Here are some discussion questions for "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber" and "The Snows of Kilimanjaro". They are meant to be points of departure and a means of finding the right balance between a freewheeling conversation and a more structured approach.

1. Why does Francis Macomber?s act of cowardice make his wife happy in ?Short Happy Life??
2. How do the lion and buffalo mirror characters in ?Short Happy Life??
3. Why does Wilson respond to ?please? from Margot at the end of ?Short Happy Life??
4. What affect does money have on the two marriages in ?Short Happy Life? and ?Kilimanjaro??
5. Is Wilson, the hunting guide in ?Short Happy Life?, an ethical man?
6. Of all the possible injuries Hemingway could have inflicted Harry with in ?Kilimanjaro?, why a scratch?
7. How does the leopard on Mount Kilimanjaro contrast Harry?s situation on the plains?
8. Does the sense of loss in Harry?s flashbacks in ?Kilimanjaro? explain his feelings for Helen?
9. When was Harry happiest and most productive in ?Kilimanjaro??
10. Does Harry deserve a place on the plane, in ?Kilimanjaro??
