Indian Camp Questions
Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.
- How do we see the future Hemingway in this story (in terms of style, story, themes, etc.)?
- Why might Hemingway begin a collection of short stories with "Indian Camp"?
- How much of Hemingway's relationship with his father—and his own eventual suicide at the age of sixty-one (in 1928)—should we read into "Indian Camp" without it overshadowing the integrity of the story?
- What relation do Nick's feelings about death at the end of the story bear toward the events of the story?
