Annotation

Argues that the naturalistic and allusive language in “A Clean, Well-Lighted Place,” particularly in the dialogue between the two waiters, exemplifies the modern inability to communicate meaning. Berman notes that, in representing the values of modern materialism and cultural truisms through the waiters, Hemingway fails to follow his own advice that characters must be people rather than symbols.
