Hemingway’s symbolism in Hills Like White Elephants Ernest Hemingway among the best of authors of his time, uses a quite different approach to his writings. His style to of writing is often vague and unclear. Hemmingway only gives a bit of content about the story, and the rest is hidden or missing entirely. The audiences are therefore forced to read more carefully and piece together the story. The style of writing he uses is known as the iceberg theory.
For the girl and the man, not being able to communicate properly was the first sign of an unhealthy relationship. Even though Jig seemed to be a minor compared to the American it is quite obvious that the girl had an asset on the man. ‘‘Can you please please please please please please please stop talking’’... ‘‘I’ll scream,’’ said the girl (281). In the light of the atmosphere, Jig uses her and the man's age difference to cause fear. Using the terms ‘‘the girl’’and ‘‘the man’’ does not only suggest the level of power over one another, but also advises one's experience and intelligence.
These completely opposite women serve as foils for each other since the differences between them help highlight their individual persona. John Proctor represents the connection between these two women. Thus, he is Elizabeth’s husband but has an affair with Abigail. This fact immediately opens the reader’s eyes towards how one’s flaws or mistakes can reveal other person’s qualities and virtues. Both,
They both show ways of perceiving American identity and what it means to an individual, particularly of one who is Japanese American or Mexican American. In Dwight Okita's poem, the girl's American identity has to do with her experiences in her life, not where she is originally from. In Sandra Cisnero's short story, the girl's American identity contrasts strongly with her family's culture and heritage. The two texts highlight the importance of individual identity and American identity, not physical appearance and heritage or ethnic background. The main characters in both of the texts relate and connect more to being American than their other cultures.
The element of gildedness plays a major role throughout the novel, The Great Gatsby, because this important theme acts as a parallel between both the time period, relation to the American Dream, and character development. Without delay, the first aspect to introduce, is the gildedness of the 1920’s. For starters, in order to understand the gildedness present in the characters and in the American Dream, it is crucial to have a brief synopsis from the history of the time period in real life, that is present in the novel.

The last method that females in general and Melanie in particular have used to construct their gender identities can be seen in light of the heroine’s relationship with the other “male” sex. In The Magic Toyshop, the concept of gender identity can be clarified through studying both male and female identity in terms of analyzing their relationships. Thus, to understand female identity, it seems imperative to refer to the role of male identity in forming female identity. Studying the psychological aspects of male characters, such as Finn and Uncle Philip, provides us with a deep understanding of the process of gender identity formulation. Moreover, it illustrates the dichotomy of male and female.

Rosario Ferre, a Puerto Rican feminist writer, wrote “The Youngest Doll” in response to the myth of the Pandora. (Encyclopedia Britannica) This legend is of a woman named Pandora, who opened a box her husband told her not too, unleashing mayhem onto the world. (Encyclopedia Mythica) In this legend, women are the cause of issues, whereas in contrast, Ferre scrutinizes men as the cause of issues.

This paper will argue that ‘The Youngest Doll’ is a short story centralized on discussing exploited women in failed marriages.
These issues start with understanding that no person is ever completely objective, this is further exacerbated by the fact that Al-Jabarti’s life will most likely change under the rule of Napoleon. This becomes reading almost like a newspaper of the time, it gives an honest look at what a piece of the population is thinking and believing, but it does not give the full story. Even if a modern writer were to write a secondary source based upon Al-Jabarti’s chronicles and a second contemporary chronicler of the same event, we will still miss out on the whole story, since the act of picking the two different pieces is subjective in its own right, leading to one’s preferred outcome in their
