Annotation

Argues that “On the Quai at Smyrna,” “Indian Camp,” and “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife” form a trio of stories united in their theme of life, death, rebirth, and the use of the caesarian technique to aid “dangerously thwarted unnatural nature.” Briefly comments on how “The End of Something” and “The Three-Day Blow” are connected by fear of pregnancy that further enriches the themes of birth and death in the first three stories.
