FIFTY GRAND

       "Fifty Grand” describes and reveals the character of an ex-boxer who wants to earn money on his last fight. His self-interest and greed coincide with these of the society in way. The boxer looses, but to do it he has to overcome the struggle with himself. It seems that nothing can stop him from earning fifty grand but he still has some moral values. It’s not very good to cheat with the betting office. It’s not his rival who wins, but his greed. It’s also an allusion for the American society. American professional boxing is a whole world, and reflects the social life of American society. Hemingway points out that it’s full of sins and vices. The mainstream idea of the story is much broader than it seems at the first glance.
