This paper discusses Ernest Hemingway's great story, "Hills Like White Elephants". It looks at symbolism throughout this story and how the story itself connects to modern life through issues such as abortion.

From the Paper:

"Jig resides in the shadow in the train station through out most of the story, and at one point she moves into the light. It seems as if she has "seen the light" and this is when she starts to consider the other side of her huge decision. Although her boyfriend tries to convince her that the decision has been hers, it seems not to work. She starts to have even more doubts just like any woman has in a situation like this. Jig's boyfriend seems as he knows what she is feeling and says, " Come on back in the shade. You mustn't feel that way." (Hemingway 245)."
