    The thesis (the last sentence in the introduction) must focus on the THEME or message about life the author is attempting to convey and be developed by three literary elements such as characterization, point of view, setting, symbolism, irony, imagery, etc. Include a preview of the three literary elements within your thesis, making sure to use parallel structure. The thesis presents what you believe to be the theme the author is attempting to convey within his/her literary work. The thesis will also include the three literary elements the author uses to develop that theme/main idea of the story.

    Theme- Choices Literary Elements- Setting, Symbolism, irony or imagery. Would this be good? And which one should I do- irony or imagery?

    This is what I have for my thesis statement- Ernest Hemingway’s short story “Hills Like White Elephants” uses these three literary elements, setting, symbolism, and ____ to express to the reader the theme choices, the choices that the two main characters Jig and the American have about their unplanned pregnancy.

    personally, i think this seems more like an ironic situation. what would the theme of imagery be based on?

    imagery is something that conjures a mental image based on what you've read. i don't know the details of this passage, but to me, it seems like the third theme would be one of irony. but to be sure, i asked what elements of imagery are included

    I'm asking which ones is better irony or imagery on the theme choices. I know both are good but Im asking for another opinion from someone who has read the short story.

    Since the girl mentions the hills being like white elephants, she understands ... The most beautiful irony in the story comes through the imagery.
