Annotation

Examines the religious history of Hemingway’s family, focusing on the differing Jamesian forms of Protestantism practiced by Hemingway’s parents. Argues that this religious tumult is portrayed in “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife” in which Dr. Adams struggles to come to terms with the imposition of his wife’s “muscular” Christianity, which reduces him to “nothing much” and dismisses his despair.
