Introduction To be a writer you must need to be passion, but most important feel the passion for what you do. It’s not something that grows in one day. Ernest Hemingway and Russell Banks were dedicated writer who enjoyed writing. They both wrote about true stories where the readers will feel identify by the story. Proposal Ernest Hemingway and Russell Banks both wrote about abortion, but in huge different style. As author they have different style in write, and different way to think.
In one hand we have Ernest Hemingway with “Hill like White Elephants”. In this story the theme is abortion, but you have to be carefully to identify the theme, because it is kind of confuse about what the couple were talking; the story seems like if the author was tried to hind it. Hemingway’s typical style is a dialogue between characters; it is continuo he used signal phrase placements in his stories. Also Hemingway used a descriptive language as example: “the girl stood up and walked to the end of the station.
Across, on the other side, were fields of grain and trees along the banks of the Ebro”(275). On the other hand we have Russell Banks with “Black Man and White Woman in Dark Green Rowboat”. He also wrote about abortion, but he tried to put it a little bit more dramatic; including racism between the couple who were one black and one white. Russell used a more narrative style in his stories, and less dialogue the readers can see dialogue when the story is unfolds contrary to Hemingway.
However Russell used more descriptive language. He emphasized in every detail about the story in the landscape, and in the same way for characters. Russell descriptive by used color as example: “by the time he closed his door the water was smooth again, dark green plain beneath the thick gray-blue sky”(1). Conclusion Each author have a different way to write that’s make them unique and distinct from each other, but in most cases authors used the same theme but in different ways and based in they own experiences.
