Like, how would he know? They both have been drinking to numb the feelings that they have about the subject and their feelings toward it and each other. To add salt to the injury, he has tried to pacify her with his KNOWING it is an “easy” procedure to have done. Oh, yeah, everyone is doing it! This is the worst I feel in a because it depicts a man not only attempting to make a decision for her and what she should do with her body, but trying to convince her it’s okay, she will be okay, and that it normal and safe to have one done.
Define observation and inference. After careful reading of Ernest Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants”, it is very clear what it’s purpose is. The story takes place in the Ebro River valley of Spain, where an American man and his female companion Jig are waiting for a train and having drinks discussing “doing it”. Obviously, by “doing it”, they’re referring to whether or not they should have an abortion. At the end of the story, we can only assume that they decide to go through with the abortion, when Jig tells the American male “I don’t care about me.” The man goes and haves a drink by himself and return to his companion.
He shows this disrespect when he says “you’ll have to get used to that” This highlights that he doesn’t give her choice/freedom which shows he has authority over Sheila. In contrast with this, he does appear to have genuine feelings for her, “I insist upon being one of the family now. I’ve been trying for long enough” The words ‘family’ and ‘trying’ suggest Gerald has been in a relationship with Sheila for a while now and clearly wants to marry her. Gerald also shows true love towards Sheila as he says, “…and I hope I can make you as happy as you deserve to be’ Gerald obviously wants to make up for his affair with Eva (even though the audience do not yet know about this affair) He seems to treat Sheila with a lot of
She is just looking for someone to confide in as she finds it hard to unburden her heart to her husband. ‘I don’t know why I can’t talk to you, I aint doin no harm to you’. Here she is just looking for a way to talk to Lennie so she speaks innocently and ‘soothingly’, trying to get his attention. She is trying to make Lennie understand that she isn’t a bad person and she isn’t doing any harm to him by talking. She then goes onto talking about herself and how she ‘coulda made something’ of herself and that she only married Curley on the rebound.
While her getting worse than before, it dramatically shows the procedure of being enlightened in case of rising of female powers. There are several evidences that may represent narrator’s mental instability and they seem to be originated from John’s oppressive way to treat her. The narrator is afraid that John doesn't seem to understand her state fully enough. "Personally, I believe that congenial work, with excitement and change, would do me good." (1279) She knows doing her favorite work―writing―and traveling around beautiful places may be helpful to recover her nervous hypochondria, but she just tries not to make John irritated by doing nothing.
He wants what’s best for her, but doesn’t want to see himself get hurt along the way. He likes being in control, and the feeling of Diane’s acceptance and love, is one of the more important things to him. Neil is tired of not being intimate with Diane, and he slightly keeps pushing her towards what he wants, but every time follows regret and suppressed anger, because he knows she’s not ready. He tells her that he’ll wait for her, but it’s not something he’s happy about. He holds grudges against it, but he loves her and therefore he stands by her choice.
