Furthermore, how did Francis Macomber die?
The short, happy life of Francis Macomber begins with his standing solid and shooting for the water buffalo’s nose and the heavy horns, “splintering and chipping them” — and then he himself is killed — killed by Margot. His short, happy life lasts for only a second or two, but he dies as master of his own life.
Subsequently, question is, is the Macomber marriage a perfect match or a disaster? It is a disaster waiting to happen. Margot has been contemptuous of Francis Macomber for some time; Francis’ running from the lion like a scared rabbit has only increased her dislike for her unmanly husband.
Regarding this, how does Francis feel about his wife?
Why will these 2 never divorce? Francis doesn’t love her and she doesn’t love him. They can’t leave because Margo is beautiful she’s a model and Francis has a lot of money than his wife .
What does the title The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber mean?
Not having the comma just means that his happy life is a short one. Having a comma would mean that his life was short and happy , which isn’t true: he is only happy at the very end; therefore the part of his life that was happy was, alas, all too brief . Wait. There’s more.
