Helstern, Linda Lizut. “Indians, Woodcraft, and the Construction of White Masculinity: The Boyhood of Nick Adams.” Hemingway Review 20, no. 1 (Fall 2000): 61-78.

Annotation

Attributes Hemingway’s depiction of white-Indian culture to his familiarity with the philosophy of naturalist writer Ernest Thompson Seton. Helstern demonstrates that Hemingway’s portrayal of white masculinity, particularly in “Indian Camp,” “The Doctor and the Doctor’s Wife,” and “Ten Indians,” supports Seton’s theory that Indian culture is salvable only through reverse assimilation—the imbuing of Indian simplicity and stoicism into white culture. Examines themes of technological progression, stoicism, and gender within the treated works.
