POV ? about Ernest Hemingway's Hills like White Elephants

Analyze the Point of View in Hills like White Elephants:

  1. What is the narration like?
  2. Explain if it's first, second, or third person- I think it's third.
  3. Explain if it's omniscient or limited, and /or if it's close or distant.
  4. How do you think this POV affects the story? As in-- how would this story be significantly altered if told through a different POV? 

Mainly I am struggling with how to tell if the story is close or distant and if it's omniscient or limited. Any help would be so appreciated!! Thank you!


I added a link to a pdf of the story in case anyone needs it. It's not a very long story:
