Annotation

Draws on Hemingway’s 1919 medical readings and war experiences to explore the severity of the story’s two medical emergencies, the Ojibwe wife’s surgery and the husband’s ax wound. Concludes that both would have died from their conditions, suggesting the husband’s suicide is the result of his fear of an unknown, painfilled future.
