Annotation

This essay explores Hemingway’s interest in doctors and surgeons. It argues that Hemingway’s experiences with surgeons after he was wounded in World War I shaped his subsequent portrayal of surgeons in his literature. He gauged their competency through ease of manner, humor, and a willingness to drink. This essay also contends that the type of surgeon Hemingway admired entered popular culture and can be seen in figures like “Hawkeye” Pierce from M*A*S*H.
