Richard Ford's "Great Falls" and Ernest Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants" are two excellent short stories with little in common except that both contain masterful, but under-stated, portrayals of deeply selfish men. A comparison in this paper of how this selfishness is evoked provides insight into the literary techniques of the two writers. In the case of Ford's story, it also shows how characters can evolve, even in a short story.
