Question description

Theme and Narrative Elements in the Short Story

In two to four double-spaced pages (excluding title and reference page), demonstrate your understanding of literary themes, using the short story Hills Like White Elephants by Ernest Hemingway (1927)

·  Describe what the theme of the short story is, using the below text as a reference.

Writers rarely state a theme directly. Instead, they prefer a more indirect approach, leaving hints through setting, characterization, dialogue, conflict, or figurative language, for instance. Symbols, too, can illuminate theme by stirring feelings, heightening conflict, and creating a certain mood. The annotations in the story illustrate some of the ways Ernest Hemingway uses theme and symbolism effectively in "Hills Like White Elephants." –From Chapter 6 (Clangston, 2013)

·  Identify at least two of the literary elements in the short story that contribute to the theme (e.g., plot, point of view, tone, setting, character, symbolism, etc.), providing an example of each element.

·  Explain how the selected literary elements affect the narrative theme

Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that focuses on how the literary elements contribute to the larger narrative theme. All sources must be properly cited.  The paper must include a separate title and reference page, and be formatted to APA (6th edition) style.

The paper must be two to four pages in length (excluding the title and reference page), and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least two scholarly resources (at least one of which can be found in the Ashford Online Library) other than the textbook to support your claims and subclaims. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
