David Foster Wallace and Ernest Hemingway are two American writers. Even though they come from different generations, both men argue about the same subject, abortion, which is controversial during their time. While both of their short stories using a third person narrative, Wallace portrays his characters’ actions and behaviours by making readers experience their thoughts in “Good People” while Hemingway portray his characters by allowing readers to observe them from the outside in “Hills Like White Elephants”. Firstly, their different writing styles can help the reader to either understand the characters relationship quickly or slowly. Next, it would seem that the involvement of reader to understand the characters in “Good People” is greater than in “Hills Like White Elephants”.
Lister tries to save many patients with antisepsis, but Bliss doesn’t use it which could be the biggest reason Garfield died. Finally, the other doctors are all there to treat Garfield to save him but are shooed away or not given much of a role in his treatment by Bliss. It was the bad intentions of Dr. Doctor Willard Bliss that killed Garfield in the end, but it brought about some much needed change in the country: the President would always be protected while out in public, antisepsis was widely adopted after Garfield’s autopsy revealed Bliss’s numerous mistakes, and President Arthur worked to end the spoils system. Garfield’s death was one that could have been prevented if a man with the right intentions had been in charge of his medical care.

While you see the mistakes made by different people and the shielding of hiding from reality that is apparent in the novel.

In one of the flashback section the author remembers a time where they should have escaped but reassured by just saying “It will all be fine.” There situation was looking really bad and they both know what was coming, while all this happened they didn’t do anything.
Joan Macleod’s The Valley portrays depression through the intertwining lives of her characters. MacLeod uses the characters misunderstanding, and disregard of those around them to convey the larger message that without communication and empathy, it is impossible to help those who suffer from depression.

Without interior monologue we would not be able to read what a pharmacist would be thinking and how the Bundren’s are perceived by an

It makes sense why George hates talking about them and quickly shut down Hazel’s proposal. All of this is written in a way that makes the story feel robotic and boring verses Tuttle’s movie. Throughout the movie, the conversations between George and his wife is a bit more intense. When Hazel tries to ask him about “lighten[ing]” the weight, he roughly shuts her down before she finished her sentence by saying that there “There isn’t [a way].” He even went on to explain why “tak[ing] them off” will lead to him “want[ing] to keep them off. And we both know how we would feel about that.” Hazel said that she would “hate it”.
Comparably, Ernest Hemingway showcases his perception of war and personal experience through the main character, Fredric, in his anti- war novel titled “A Farewell to Arms”. Throughout the novel, Fredric is shown performing a conventional male role- he drinks, he fights, and commits valiant acts. However, much like other men in the book, his musicality is revealed to be a complicated and unique one. In summation, Fredric is depicted as a human, not a superhero, - he loves, and he suffers, he hopes, and sometimes breaks
