Barton, Edwin J. “The Story as It Should Be: Epistemological Uncertainty in Hemingway’s ‘Cat in the Rain.’” Hemingway Review 14, no. 1 (Fall 1994): 72-78.

Annotation

Offers a postmodern analysis of the “lexical riddles” found in the story. Speculates on if the wife has ever been pregnant before or if she (or her husband) is infertile, and how the questioning of fertility subverts the stereotypical roles of the characters. Advises reading as a writer to interpret Hemingway’s lexical riddles.
