Indian Camp Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. How do we see the future Hemingway in this story (in terms of style, story, themes, etc.)?
  2. Why might Hemingway begin a collection of short stories with "Indian Camp"?
  3. 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?
  4. What relation do Nick's feelings about death at the end of the story bear toward the events of the story?
