“Hills Like White Elephants”Is a short story Written by Ernest Hemingway, symbolize the debate of abortion. Hemingway conveys this message cryptically by keeping the actual discussion of abortion out of the short story.
Does the girl in the story stay in her relationship with the man? I believe the girl stay with her partner and keeps the baby. The dialogue between the two shows that the woman starts to realize that she doesn't want to abort the baby on page 477 around the end she says "No, it isn't. And once they take it away, you never get it back." Hitting at the fact that she wants to keep the baby. As well the author mentions a beaded curtain multiple times to show its significance of the two beads, which are held together by a thread, symbolize the relationship that a mother has for her child. If you look at page 478, you can see that even at one point the man Starts questioning whether or not that he wants her to keep the baby. You also need to look at the time of year it is in the story; it based in 1920 where abortions were a crime and a sin. Likewise women heavy depended on men to support them. Women didn't get the same opportunities that men had. Women couldn't go to school or were allowed to work, they had to stay home and take care of the children. This is why I think she stay and had the baby.
Write a 100-word narrative that illustrates a response to this question: When have you made an important choice to stay in a relationship or leave a relationship -- OR -- stay or leave a difficult situation?
A Years ago, I made an important decision to move to new york on my own. Growing up it was just my grandpa and me; we didn't have the best relationship we both have are problem's and a hot temper to go with them. It wasn't one particular thing it was all the little thing that made me want to leave so bad. A home is supposed to be a place of joy and love where you're meant to feel safe, but my house was just a building with walls and windows. My bedroom felt more like a prison cell than a bedroom. I felt like I had no say when it came to my life he had to control everything, and god forbid if he couldn't We constantly fought if it wasn't one thing it was about another. I always feared that one day one of us would finally explode with anger and hatred crossing a line we wouldn't be able to come back from our words turning into a shotgun built piercing right through you.
