While reading “Indian Camp,” the first story in Ernest Hemingway’s book, In Our Time , I was puzzled by the idea that the childbirth such a small part of the story when that is the reason Nick and his father went to the camp in the first place . This is essentially a story about childbirth but if focuses more on Nick’s experience and the doctor’s rather than the Indian woman . Throughout American literature, and literature as a whole, the idea of male authority dominates and is especially prevalent in the story, “Indian Camp . A women, according to Gilbert and Gubar in “The Queen’s Looking Glass,” “has no story of her own but gives “advice and consolation” to others, listens, smiles, sympathizes” (p 22) . Basically a woman does not have a story, she is a character there to aid the male characters and is there for their pleasure and use . This explains why the female Indian was such a small part in the story . We are hardly told anything about the woman, we know that she is very sick and then find out that it is because she is in labor.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
