This paper highlights the beautiful complexities of Hemingway's female characters, who have long been overlooked; most of the attention has been directed towards his heroic male characters.

From the Paper:

"For the last 50 years countless literary critics and academics have devoted their entire lives to the dissection of Hemingway's gusto-filled life and its axiomatic relationship to the novels and short stories that catapulted him to the pinnacle of his literary fame. In their attempt to understand one of the 20th centuries greatest prose stylist, misguided scholars have focused all their attention on Hemingway's heroic male characters, overlooking the sensitivity to detail, the perception through a female's eyes, and ultimately, the quiet mastery of his craftsmanship that allowed for the creation of a few of the most poignant and realistic female literary characters of the 20th century as is evident by Jig's character in "Hills Like White Elephants.""
