Hello. I'm looking for articles about for an english project.

E. Hemingway's "Hills like white elephants" and R. Banks' "Black Man White Woman in a darkgreen rowboat"...I'm looking for articles that compare/contrast and look at each critically...I couldnt find much on my own.

I’d recommend starting with EBSCO databases like Academic Search Premier and MLA International Bibliography.  Try searching for these words:


hills like white elephants AND (crit* OR anal*)


dark green rowboat AND (crit* OR anal*)


Looking only at full text resources, I get back articles like:


Staking Everything on It: A Stylistic Analysis of Linguistic Patterns in 'Hills Like White Elephants'




Allusion, word play, and the central conflict in Hemingway's `Hills Like White Elephants'


Plot-resistant narrative and Russel Bank's `Black Man and White Woman in Dark Green Rowboat'


If you don’t find enough of what you need here, try using databases like ProQuest Literature and Language or JSTOR.  Literature Criticism Online and Literature Resource Center are also good databases to try (do a title search for one of the short stories in either of them).


All our other databases that deal with language and literature can be found on this LibGuide.  Let me know if I can be of any assistance to you.

    Database Updates:

    Problem Accessing Fulltext in the ERIC Database


    From their website:


    Dear ERIC Community,

    In early August we discovered that sensitive personally identifiable information appeared in some full text documents contained in the ERIC collection. Specifically, social security numbers and other highly sensitive information were found in multiple documents and in a way that could not easily be isolated. For that reason, we had to temporarily disable access to many full text documents.

    Although these documents had been publicly available in microfiche for many years, the advent of Internet search engines has made it easier to find this information. Our number one concern is to ensure that any full-text documents we provide do not violate any individual's privacy. We believe that if any of us were to have our privacy compromised by an ERIC document, we would want the same consideration.

    We are seeking to restore access to documents as soon as possible. In order to restore access to ERIC, we have to check every document to see if it contains personally identifiable information. Due to the quality of many of the documents, a large portion of the search has to be done by hand. This is a large undertaking and we are in the process of hiring a team to help restore access in a fast and responsive manner. We hope to get this team in place by late September and releasing large numbers of ERIC documents by the end of October. We will continue to release documents after that point on a rolling basis.

    To minimize the burden on our users, we will prioritize searching the documents that users request. If you would like to request a PDF to be returned online, please email with the record number (such as ED263102). Documents will be returned on a rolling basis and may take several weeks, but we are working as fast as possible.

    We are sorry for the inconvenience and want to thank you for bearing with us through this unexpected delay.
