On the other hand, in, “Allusion, Word-Play, and the Central Conflict in Hemingway’s ‘Hills Like White Elephants,’” by Timothy O’Brien, from the United States Naval Academy, he sheds light on the wordplay and diction as proof for Jig not keeping the baby. Lastly, David Wyche, from North Carolina State University, in his essay, “Letting the Air into a Relationship: Metaphorical Abortion in ‘Hills Like White Elephants,’” determines the reader cannot know whether the characters have the abortion or not. Renner is correct because of the fact that Jig keeps the baby based on the diction, setting, and movements of the short
Relationships are the core of everything we do in life. We love someone, so we do something for them; we value someone 's opinion, so we respect them; we dislike someone, so we avoid them. Relationships cause people to act on their emotions which impact how and why they do the things they do. Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” is about a couple trying to come to a conclusion on a delicate matter. While the man strongly promotes his opinion the girl is hesitant but wants to do whatever will make him happy.
In “homage to my hips” by Lucille Clifton, she talks about her self-confidence. Clifton is proud to be the woman she is and no one will get in the way of how she feels about herself. Clifton tells readers in this sentence “they don’t fit into little petty places” (524), she is saying that she is confident with who she is, and she is just fine with her size. She says that she will not be around petty people that will judge her, because of the way she looks. Clifton will never think that she is worthless because of what other people think of her.
After telling her it’s her decision and trying to sway her decision he reveals “‘I think it’s the best thing to do. But I don’t want you to do it if you don’t really want to’ ‘And if I do it you’ll be happy and things will be like they were any you’ll love me’”
Again, Atwood uses simple, matter-of-fact diction to describe the lack of humanities being taught in school. She seamlessly inserts Jimmy’s confession which indicates that all the vocabulary and literature such as “how [he] first encountered Shakespeare was through Anna K.’s rendition of Macbeth”, which indicates that the compound’s schools teach exclusively science courses (Atwood, 102). Additionally, Atwood juxtaposes Martha Graham, a humanities school, with Watson-Crick, a science school to reveal the extreme differences in funding that the schools receive. To illustrate this, Atwood creates a pleebland setting for Martha Graham, where everything appears to be falling apart. Jimmy describes the Academy as “falling apart and surrounded by the tackiest kind of pleeblands”, which juxtaposed with Watson-Crick which contains “a bronzed statue of the Institute’s mascot, the spoat/gider… inside grounds which [are] beautifully laid out… the pathways [are] smooth and wide, which students and faculty [beetle] along in their electric golf carts”, which illustrates that society is willing to spend more time and money on a science school rather than an arts academy (Atwood, 225,234).Similarly, throughout the novel, Atwood highlights that society is viewing the humanities as an accompaniment to the sciences, instead of a faculty of their own.
This is all from “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto. The overall idea is love, the opinion that one may have is that one should always have love for someone to be happy and the 3 literary elements that may support one’s topic and opinion is symbols, setting, and characterization. First, symbols in “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto supports the theme that one shouldn’t take anger out on the people they love because something could happen at any time and they will regret what they said.

She takes anger out on her father, but she realizes after they leave there has been a horrible accident and so she starts to regret not saying goodbye to her father.

She did not stir from her path. She longed until the longing became the quest. It was perhaps not the man she loved but the one who might have been equal to her love that she lamented (Rilke 155).
