Of course it is Nick. In the story, In Another Country the reader realizes that Nick Adams is honest, virile, and, more important, a person of extreme sensitivity. By observing the particular state of mind of the young narrator at the beginning of the story, we see that what happens to the major makes a tremendous impact on the young, wounded soldier. He is the Hemingway hero because of his virility and honesty and especially his sensitivity.
