Gynecologists, Power and Sexuality in Modernist Texts
Studies the male gynecologist as an archetypal figure in Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper,” Barnes’s Nightwood (1936), and Hemingway’s “Indian Camp” and A Farewell to Arms. Kautz argues that the field of obstetrics/gynecology, once dominated by women, was altered by male-centric goals. Evaluates the doctor figures within Hemingway’s works to uncover the sterility of the field and the transformation of women into powerless patients.
