In this essay, I am going to study Ernest Hemingway's short story Indian Camp published in 1924 by using first the historical and biographical approach and then the structuralist approach. In this story, we follow Nick Adams and his father, a doctor, who is called at an Indian camp to help a pregnant women. He has to proceed to a caesarean and Nick assists him during the whole operation. Both mother and child survive but at the end the doctor discovers that the Indian newly father has committed suicide. The plot is quite minimalist: it is a one night story. The style is telegraphic and uncluttered, always precise. It gives to show without telling things directly.
