Hemingway created the image to explain where a story takes place from the author’s point of view. While language is what we read, what we ‘see’ is below the surface and deduced only through the author’s words. Much is hidden unless exposed through the use of wording. Thus, what the reader feels can only be felt by what the author writes. Write Carefully!
