”Indian Camp” Ernest Hemmingway
Indian Camp is a short story written by Ernest Hemmingway. The short story is about a boy Nick, his father and uncle George.
They have to take to the Indian camp because a young Indian lady is about to give birth. She is in a lot of pain. Nick’s father has to operate the lady where he chooses to make a cesarean on the lady.
Nick’s father helped the lady to deliver the baby. The Indian lady’s husband commits suicide. On the way home does Nick ask his father a lot of questions about life and death.
Nick tells his father that he will never die. Nick and his father are on their way home, but Uncle George stays in the Indian Camp.
The short story “Indian Camp’s” main character is Nick. Nick has the point of view. There is not so much information about him
but we know he is young because of his naïve disposition. He is naïve and curious because he’s constantly asking lot of questions.
He is witness to a violent childbirth and a suicide throughout the story. Which makes him grow. There are two other characters which are Nick’s father and uncle George.
Nick’s father is a doctor and a well-educated white man. He is proud and exhilarated when he delivers the baby for the Indian lady.
We’re shown that he’s a caring father, he wants Nick to grow up and pressures him into witnessing the birth, but after he makes sure to console Nick.
Uncle George is the most dominating one in the hierarchy because he sits in the stern of the boat. He calls the Indian lady a slur. The child is his and he possibly raped the Indian lady.
Handling out cigars meant that you were claiming that the child was yours.
Water can symbolize baptism, rebirth and other rites of passages. This is seen through the story’s circular structure and is centralized around Nick’s development from a boy to a man. Stern in rowboat symbolizes masculinity because you are sitting in the leaders’ seat.
The overall theme is growing up, though there’s hints of themes of masculinity.
From the Indian lady’s husband committing suicide due to not being able to ‘’handle things’’ (like a real man would) to Nick’s fathers’ keeping his head cool through a difficult situation and ‘’saving the day’’
nearly birthing the child himself. Uncle Georges traditional overpowering masculinity and Nick’s own development.
We can see Nick’s development in the way he grows less naïve, leaves his father’s caring arms and is more secure in himself.
