Hedonism in Hills Like White Elephants, by Ernest Hemingway - The search of pleasure has always been an inherent desire in human nature. The roaring twenties witnessed the uprising of a society that extolled such desire through the creation of a culture solely dedicated to consume. Ernest Hemingway analyses the behavioral patterns of such culture in his short story "Hills Like White Elephants", where the concept of Hedonism- fathomed as an egotistical action whose only purpose is to bestow pleasure- and its consequences on the individual is explored. Through the characters' dialogue in which they avoid a substantial conversation and implicitly state their disappointment in life, Hemingway explores the emptiness generated by pleasure-seeking actions....   [tags: Hills Like White Elephants Essays]

Hills Like White Elephants, by Ernest Hemingway - In Ernest Hemingway’s Hills like White Elephants we follow a couple’s conversation as they wait for a train. The majority of their dialogues evolve around abortion. He perfunctorily tries to convince her to abort the child while she reluctantly tries to please him. As the story goes along the female protagonist continually consumes alcohol, although she is presumed pregnant. I claim that her volition to keep this baby strongly can be argued, since it is common knowledge alcohol can harm an unborn child....   [tags: Hills Like White Elephants Essays] 880 words

It's basically the antipodal image of the 1950's "nuclear family." Despite this surface-level disjointedness, it is his family and the "extrasensory rapport" that he shares with them allows Jack to survive in his world....   [tags: White Noise Essays]

The White Doe by Francesco Petrarch - Title- I believe that the title, "The White Doe" will perhaps have something to do with animals because the only way I have ever heard the word doe used is in the context of a female deer.

The White Doe, by Francesco Petrarch - Through language a poet allows himself the license to hint at things unrevealed by the literal meaning of a poem. The use of one distinct word over another often suggests a double meaning. “The White Doe” functions on two levels. First on a literal level, a man on a pursuit after a beautiful white doe; and secondly on a figurative level, suggesting that the white doe is really the speakers ideal woman. The “antlers of gold” mentioned in line two represent the duality of the woman. The antlers conjure up images of pain while gold suggests a certain beauty....   [tags: The White Doe Essays] 378 words

Another one that I thought up was that a white deer is an angel from heaven that will save someone. The last idea that I came up with was that it was about a white deer that was camouflaged in some snow to escape a predator.

Perspectives on Gender Roles: Snow White and Mirrors - Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, our lives are a mirror, reflection is a must...” (Lynda Meyers) Disney did a rather good representation on the Grimm brother’s original fairytale. In both stories Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs conveys a message about the mirror representing a sense of self on a superficial and deep emotional level. It reinstates many cultural roles that have been put upon both woman and men. It is a story of self discovery and whether or not the characters are able to develop throughout the story in relation to the affects to a “real life individual”....   [tags: fairy tale, seven dwarfs, snow white]
