Applying the Literary Analysis to Ernest Hemmingway’s Indian Camp

Another prime example in ‘Indian Camp’, in lieu of lack of comfort for women in the story is when the Indian woman bites the doctor due to the terrible agony she is in. The doctor screams, Damn, the squaw bitch bit my arm (Hemmingway 2)! This exhumes a complete denial of compassion for the woman and the anguish she was is.

A young man of courage (People of Power). Though the story lacks appeal for those with feminist values, for others, ‘Indian Camp’ portrayed a comprehensive appeal for those who could relate it to all aspectual area’s of life and the fascination of death that Hemmingway himself was proven to have dwelled upon.

Furthermore, the times that Hemmingway grew up in and became accustomed to have proven to play a significant factor in the portrayal of women in society and through written material. Although the feminist view point still exists. and in some very strongly so, it does not play the role in literature as it once did. This is due to times having changed from the 1920’s to the present year now.
