Annotation

Explores the appropriation of caesarean childbirth as an analogy for male creativity, arguing for the significance of such borrowing during Hemingway’s formative years on his definition of himself as a man and as a writer. Investigates the significance of the cesarean in both the novel and story “Indian Camp” in relation to the development of the male protagonists, looking specifically at the climax and conclusion of each text.
