Annotation

Contends that Hemingway uses the Nick Adams stories to explore his own troubled relationship with his father. Schedler argues that the increasingly disillusioned Nick seeks a Native American ancestor, concluding that Hemingway’s familiarity with the Ojibway culture of northern Michigan gave him a tribal legacy for creating characters, themes, and narrative structures for his stories. Examines “Now I Lay Me,” “Indian Camp,” “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife,” “Ten Indians,” and “The Last Good Country.”
