O’Brien, Timothy D. “Allusion, Word-Play, and the Central Conflict in Hemingway’s ‘Hills Like White Elephants.’” Hemingway Review 12, no. 1 (Fall 1992): 19-25.

Annotation

Analyzes how the repetition of allusive words illustrate the main conflict of the story: the struggle between the “artificial” male world and the “natural” female world. Concludes that the story functions as a critique of patriarchal authority and female compliance to that authority.
