There is a distinguished balance in the relationship of women and men and it is visible in coexisting and procreating beyond themselves. In making decisions that are influenced by mistakes sometimes, one person gets the short end of the stick. In Hills Like White Elephants, the feminine role is displayed by a woman named Jig, whose feelings and thoughts get pushed aside to cater to the main male character’s wants and needs.

Masculine and feminine attributes have been visible in literature from the beginning of language, with the response of love and forcing one’s self to put aside: “me” for “you.” Jig is well aware of herself yet wants to keep her man so much that she is willing to hurt herself physically and mentally.

The tone that Krakauer conveys in his text includes: hopefulness, anxiety, frustration, pensiveness, and sorrow. A few of the word choices he chooses are intensely, happiness, and expectations. At the exposition of the story, Krakauer is hopeful that he will be able to climb the mountain. During his climb becomes really focused yet a sense of happiness when he says, “By and by, your attention becomes so intensely focused that you no longer notice the raw knuckles, the cramping thighs, the strain of maintaining nonstop concentration….
