Your assignment

We've read two stories which portray two conversations about abortion .  For your paper, please compare how Hemingway's " Hills Like White Elephants" and David Foster Wallace's "Good People" approach the topic.  You may focus on any element of the short story you wish, or you can look at how time and place inform the characters' behaviors.  You don't necessarily need to look for Hemingway's and Wallace's own views on abortion, but rather focus on what attitudes are expressed by the characters in the conversations and what makes the conversations difficult for each character.  

You will need to find and use two sources for each story from the literary criticism databases to support your claims about the story.   No Google searches allowed!

The paper needs to be 5-7 pages in MLA format including in-text citations for references to both the stories and the sources. and a Works Cited page
