The main thesis of this paper is to focus on the narration: style of the story and analyze the impact on the narration on the reader. In two Hemingways stories: The Indian Camp and Old Man at the Bridge. Indian camp and Old Man at the Bridge are ones of Hemingway’s his early short stories, which, like all the following, are the reflection of reality. They makes the reader to associate himself with the story by making his own presence discrete, covert, as the reader is unaware of the narrating subject as he/she is consumed in character and action. The reader is made related to the actions. The author highlights the dialogic language and this means id being vivid in the application of plural discourses.
The author brings together the Americans and the native Indians, the both young and old generations. The interaction of the author and the story, the focus of the authors attitude to the situation is greatly original and standing out. The distinguishing between authors personifications are the characters. The implied author and the implied narrator are closely intertwined in Hemingways stories, and they both merge with the :implied reader, which created the effect of authenticity and physical presence within the narration.

The “omniscience”, the kind of superficial knowledge of every characters action and thought, shifti from one character to another. But Hemingway’s natural tact in handling the interactions of his characters makes him an outstandingly skillful author. The dialogue is accompanied by the description of setting. He provides the sense and setting regarding the showing and the telling of the story. The Narrative discourse bears on the narrative and the narrating, not on the story, the disguises the emphasis is on the form, and emphasizes the content. Hemingway chooses the steps to bring his characters together that involve into the narration the whole contemporary reality.
The reader from the very beginning is introduced to a magnificent setting; the background that sets a beautiful sense for events and unfolds the picturesque scenery. The reader could build up some expectations about the reasons for the characters actions. Hemingway gives the reader much space for imagination. It is for the reader to put one plus one and reach two. The kind of information Hemingway offers is far from that offered on a silver spoon. Hemingway has success in creating a moment of catastrophic reality, a moment of horror of death, unpleasant sight not only for the reader, but the character himself. Hemingway is fully aware of his abilities and uses the present tense for conveying a more subtle effect of the characters existence The ambiguity of style is typical of Hemingway, the use of very simple words, direct and to the point.
The simplicity strikes the reader, as it is so profound. The dialogues are full with all the curiosity of youth together with the reasoning of maturity. These final statements of his stories help the readers to judge according to the universal scale of values. They are the messages for life, no matter what is the readers native tongue, the essential values are common foe all the manhood, and thus the Hemingways language is open and clear for any reader.
