In the book, Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer writes of his personal experience to add more to Chris McCandless’ story and to the readers understanding of his character. After Krakauer had written the article on Chris, many people had believed that Chris was a suicidal kid who wanted to rebel against the world and his parents. Krakauer, however, did not believe that this was the case because at one time he and Chris had similar characteristics and dreams, “As a youth, I am told, I was willful, self-absorbed, intermittently reckless, and moody. I disappointed my father in the usual ways. Like Chris McCandless, figures of male authority aroused in me a confusing melody of corked fury and hunger to please.”
In The Red Badge of Courage, the theme of courage is tied to masculinity. At first, Henry Fleming feels like he can’t prove himself without first proving his valor. In all, his courage is proven through his proven through his deep commitment and greater cause of the Union Army. We also see Warfare as a theme of The Red Badge of Courage. Crane does his best to embrace the thoughts and ideas of war from a single perspective contrary to a group view as well as the psychological battles faced by an individual, which can sometimes be seen as far more important than the battles actually fought on the field.

Lee shows us that many different people have many different views of success and these views of this success shows them what they must do to achieve it.

On the subject of his opposing general in the Union forces Lt. General Armstrong of the Confederate states said “That man will fight us every day and every hour till the end of the war”(brotherswar.com). Grant was determined to defeat the Confederate forces completely and set his sights to take Richmond and end the war.
He frequently uses foreshadowing throughout The Book Thief and by using it, he creates false hope and suspense. Zusak makes the his audience want to keep reading to see if his inclinations about future events are true. Most of the foreshadowing in The Book Thief points to one significant event, the deaths of the important people in Liesel's life, one of the best examples of his use of false hope in his foreshadowing is this: “Preemptively, you conclude, as I would, that Rudy died that very same day of hypothermia. He did not.” (Zusak 242).
He was going to sign to be a man and he knew a way to do it.” This demonstrates how he is willing to leave his family and everything he has to go fight in the war.

The memoirs of this book try to convey and inform you about real problems in the world and that we need to step in. My honest opinion about A Long Way Gone: memoirs of a boy soldier by Ishmael Beah is that this book was amazing, I loved it because it 's like a testimony I think Ishmael Beah wrote this not just to inform you but to get over his pain from his past but sometimes you can’t get over your past sometimes the scars aren’t just on you body but in your head too. Everyone suffers but not like Ishmael did for years he suffered and he had to kill. In ways I can connect to the suffering but not to the war part this book no matter who you are you might able to connect to this book in some way it tell the truth about life. I think people in the war might like the book, mostly males ages 17-21, privileged societies that can hear what 's really going on in
He was scared of the war and hoped the similar to the man, but in the end Tim faced his fear and he is ashamed of it. It hit him hard because it was like imagining himself be killed. Killing someone can bring an immense shock, O’Brien wrote, “‘Think it over,’ Kiowa said. Then later he said, ‘Tim, it's a war. The guy wasn't Heidi—he had a weapon, right?
While the regiment managed to fend off another attack, they may have lost soldiers. Henry worried for himself above all and worried that whether if he stayed or not he would still die, regardless of the result of the battle. After the adrenaline rush of the first attack Henry came to his senses and feared for his life, knowing full well his chances of surviving another attack would be low. Especially now that he was caught off guard and was more scared than the first battle. Despite knowing his regiment might survive he was sure he wouldn 't and ran away to save his own life.
He thought he was going to pass out. This is one of the reasons that Henry could have ran away from the second battle, because he was close to death. Henry wasn’t doing well for his first time; he went a little over board and got himself into trouble again. “The youth awakened slowly. He came gradually back to a position from which he could regard himself.
In the first battle Henry fires into the battle, blindly not seeing his enemy. As the second battle approaches, he gets scared so that is when he flees the scene of the second battle. I do not think flees the first battle because he did not know that to expect, so when the second battle approaches he knows that there real possibility of him dying. Before his first battle he has to think of his courage. "Whatever he had learned of him self was here no avail.
In the novel The Red Badge of Courage, psychological effects of war are further dealt with and examined than the aspect of physical war tactics. The book primarily focuses on one character and struggle: the protagonist Henry’s, constant battle with himself to be courageous. As the story moves forward, Henry is somewhat fighting two battles, one physical and one mentally as he strives to prove his bravery and manhood. It is commonly debated whether or whether not Henry finally succeeds and completes his pursuit for maturity and adulthood by the end of the novel. I think that although at first Henry notions of what it means to be a courageous man are inadequate to reality, he grows through experience and reaches maturity at the novel’s conclusion.
I believe that war can turn a boy into a man. Make a boy become an adult. War is something that is tragic but also can be rewarding. You have to make choices out on the battlefield in a matter of seconds. Some of the choices could affect many people and not just yourself.
