While Paul continued to fight in the war to protect his fellow comrades in All Quiet on the Western Front, Junger was motivated by pure patriotism to fight for his country in The Storm of Steel. Both young men were patriotic and valued their comrades in each of the novels. Both Remarque and Junger had comradeship and patriotism to help get through the difficulty and stressful times. In All Quiet on the Western Front, Remarque describes many scenes that involve comradeship among the young soldiers. Paul and his comrade, Kat, developed a bond of friendship and brotherhood during the dismal times of the war, which helped their individual desires to survive and protect their fellow soldiers.
The physical injuries sustained by men on the frontline in All quiet on the western front were absolutely horrendous. Remarque communicated this through his vivid use of gore and graphic imagery, however did was not supposed to be a surprise factor, but more for the reader to truly understand what soldier could go through. For example, Remarque made it very clear that he was aware of the pains men were forced to endure when he put Paul and
Lord of the Flies by the author William Golding is a story that tells us about a group of boys who are lost on an island because their plane fell down. The group of boys faces problems while they are stranded on the island, thanks to many disagreements between the boys. Conflict happens all the way through the story. One of the ways that the author represents conflict is through two of the main characters, Ralph, the leader of the civilized group, and Jack, the leader of the savage group. The author also reveals the growing tension between the civilized group and the savage group in three parts of the story: when the signal fire is let out and a boat passes by the island, when Jack leaves the civilized group to create his own group, and when the savage group steals Piggy’s glasses to make their own fire.
When it comes down to politics, people are usually willing to fight tooth and nail for what they believe in, but most people wouldn’t kill a beloved family member, and the Sniper isn’t any different. Even though The Sniper would never yearn to kill his brother, he did, but at the same it was probably the right thing to do when faced with his circumstances. In “The Sniper,” neither the Sniper nor his brother are villains because they both fight for what they believe in and neither side in the Irish Civil War is inherently wrong, but some readers may interpret the brother as being a villain due his willingness to shoot an Irish Republican sniper, which adds to the story because it doesn’t give the reader a distinct feeling of success or failure.
In this excerpt from "The Interlopers," the two characters are Ulrich von Gradwitz and Georg Znaeym. These two are sworn enemies, though the author, Saki, does not directly state why they despise each other. One night, they crossed paths in a dark forest, each on a quest to find and murder the other. They both carried rifles, but before they could inflict bodily harm on the other person, a storm caused a beech tree to collapse and hold the helpless men to the ground. They were bloody, weak, and hurt, and there was nothing each man could do except wait for his group to discover their plight and rescue him.
He believed they were smarter and trusted in the older generation to know what was best for them, “But in our hearts we trusted them. The idea of authority… was associated in our minds with a greater insight and a more human wisdom” (Remarque 12). It was a stable part of his life to have comfort and safety in knowing Paul and his peers were doing the right thing since that is what they were told to do. He even joined the war simply because he was asked to by his teacher, Kantorek, and this blind following shows his complete faith in his elders. Once Paul got to the front, he quickly realized that his confidence in the supposedly wiser generation was misguided, “The first bombardment showed us our mistake, and under it the world as they taught us broke into pieces” (Remarque 13).
He has a basic understanding that being involved in the war since he was six years old has made him jaded. He knows that the actions and choices that spies, saboteurs, and assassins have to make are difficult and damaging to one’s psyche, but necessary for the cause. His duty and his desire to peace are in conflict with one another. The way he maintains his sanity under the utilitarian regiment of the Rebel forces is the belief in the good and faith in something bigger than himself. There are instances in the film where the audience sees this without the intervention of Chirrut or Jyn.
Russian playwright Anton Chekhov offers the play Three Sisters as a reference to the lives of a noble Russian family. Set in a small town used for garrisoning troops, the Prozorov family struggles to live their fullest lives in the backwater town. Accompanied by several military men, the three sisters, Olga, Masha, Irina, and their brother, Andrei, attempt to navigate a somber and seemingly predestined life. Anton Chekhov uses the lives of the Prozorov’s and the people they interact with to insinuate beliefs about the Russian nobility and educated society. Throughout Three Sisters, Chekhov suggests that noble people live somber, dissatisfying lives, are disconnected from the struggles of the average Russian, and suffer from various moral pitfalls.
He tells Haroun that there’s a difference between “need” and “want,” and Haroun acknowledges that advice near the end of the story when he said that “the way things are just now [he] honestly [doesn’t] need to go anywhere at all” (211). They’re also four other allies, they’re Iff the Water Genie, Mali the Floating Gardener, and Bagha and Goopy. They are the type of allies who does small tasks to help the hero, but the tasks did great things nonetheless. For example, when Haroun and Iff the Water Genie were trapped in the Khattam-Shud’s ship, Iff gave Haroun a Bite-a-Lite. With the Bite-a-Lite, Haroun was able to create a distraction and steal the diving suit to stop the Story Source from getting plugged in.
While he gets to know a lot about the Indian army´s styles of functioning, and he becomes involved in carrying out their everyday work, in a small but extremely hideous way. However, while he reflects a lot on his gone friends, on the dead bodies, on the charred forests, heavily shelled mountains, and delves deeper into his own history, on the good days of his childhood. He somehow loses himself. He pays for his life by not losing it, by not taking up a gun and shooting himself or someone else, by not taking some damn position. He turns out to be the most damaged character who suffers in multiple
