Annotation

Feminist reading of “Indian Camp,” looking closely at female suffering and male empathy. Argues that Nick’s decision to side with his detached and insensitive father costs him his humanity. Tyler recounts Hemingway’s troubled relationship with his own father, asserting that the story reflects the author’s retrospective analysis of the damage a father can inflict on a son.
