Reading Comprehension and Metaphor Hills like White Elephants

1年前
In this story, the topic the 2 characters are discussing is not blatantly stated, it is left up for the reader to decide. Many scholars agree that it is one particular topic, but it is open-ended to readers and an interesting way to test your reading comprehension. Hemingway is one author that generally keeps his sentences less complex and more direct which is great for language learners.
Questions
  1. What is the significance of the setting being at train station, how does it relate to the content of the story, or symbolically?
  2. What are some of the describing words used by the speakers to talk about their subject?
  3. Why would Hemingway NOT say exactly what they are talking about?
