Male convincing sense of faith between the two

Male camaraderie is used recurrently
by Hemingway. He uses it in this story, evidently, and he also uses it in “The Three-Day
Blow” and in “Indian Camp”. Bill plays more of a significant role in “The Three-Day
Blow” while permitting Nick to reside with him at his cottage. Bill offers Nick
to stay with him while the storm blows over, even though Nick just showed up. In
the story “Indian Camp”, Nick and his Dad have a very solid connection. They
should have a strong bond bearing in mind they are father and son, however, in
their circumstances it is even stronger. There is also a convincing sense of faith
between the two and Uncle George as well, although he vanishes at the end of
the story.

This story could be understood
as an autobiography. When Hemingway was in his twenties, had a relationship
with a girl named Marjorie who was from an old resort town.  Bill Smith was Hemmingway’s best friend.  Recognizing this information, readers can suppose
that Bill is just a close friend, is logical in this situation. When a guy
breaks up with a girl, usually he will tell his friends or ask their opinion if
he should or should not. Nick expressed to Bill that he was going to break up
with Marjorie. Bill knew what Nick’s scheme was and came to console Nick once
she left. This is a good example of male fellowship that Hemingway writes about
in his stories.

An additional motive that could have aided in the ending of Nick and
Marjorie’s relationship is that Nick no longer felt love for Marjorie. Nick
taught Marjorie everything he knew about fishing. Once Marjorie is a skilled
fisherman, Nick recognizes that he is unusable to her and that Marjorie may be
a more proficient fisherman than he is. Nick could have only been drawn to
Marjorie because she needed him. This is a universal reason why people are
attracted to each other. The two spent a great deal of time together while
Marjorie was learning to fish, and Nick could have been attracted to her
because she needed him.
