Les forêts du Nord/The Northern Woods by Ernest Hemingway
Parallel Text/Dual Language Paperback, 108 pages
Nick Adams is a fictional character, protagonist of two dozen short stories. Partly inspired by Hemingway's own experiences - from his summers in Northern Michigan to his service in the Red Cross ambulance corps during World War I. Most of these stories were collected in The Nick Adams Stories. They are, for the most part, stories of initiation and adolescence. This story sets place in an Indian camp where a woman has been giving birth for 2 days due to complications and his husband has died due to, supposedly, an axe incident until Adams, although his young age, discovers otherwise..
Parmi la cinquantaine de nouvelles d'Hemingway, plusieurs ont pour héros Nick Adams, alter ego de l'écrivain. Dans ce recueil intitulé Les forêts du Nord, elles sont replacées dans l'ordre chronologique. Toutes évoquent la jeunesse et l'adolescence de Nick Adams dans le Michigan, à la frontière canadienne, un État peuplé d'Indiens.
