If these men are not outright wounded then they come home, different people. The massive cost in the lives of those who fight in the war is evident by this. They either die the hero or live long enough to see themselves become unrecognizable to their loved ones and
It's a tough thing, for sure, but you got to cut out that staring”(O’Brien 120). Just though the imagery that we receive from O’Brien we can see that Tim was very ashamed of his actions and the silence that overtook him. Tim feels really guilty and ashamed for killing that man and we see that through O’Brien’s
The half-trees could have been included for numerous reasons such as the artist dismantling a possible notion that trees only get taken done by humans, or even so far as comparing a man’s power to chopping down a tree to something as sublime as a natural occurrence. Looking at the painting structurally, the artists employs techniques such as space, scale, and medium to further elude to the overall point of the painting. Using fall colors to depict the natural landscape and the intermittently matching humans, the color palette used by the artist gives off an overall tone of calmness and serenity. The land as it recedes into the background of the painting, shifts to the lighter blue tones as the forest gets less dense and is replaced with patches of clear land with specific sections of dense trees. The colors used create a cohesiveness between the natural landscape and humans, but the variance in forest shows the powers of a human’s power.
The people in charge may have argued that he was too involved and even though he never went through with the plots he deserved death. Since he had no protection from a jury or even his own input he was hung for just being involved. His name was attached to Booth’s and this made him a wanted man. This world is full of sin and corruption.
This is the climax of where Bierce displays his beliefs of hatred towards war and fighting, since the “soldier-at-heart” is hung. He is not able to escape, like fairytales, because wars are real and people die, it is not a great adventure that people like to believe. Bierce resents war and hints to this undertone throughout An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge, masking it with figurative language. Bierce subtly hints throughout the story about the folly of war and its destructions rather than its ability to solve disputes. Bierce believes that war is glorified by those who never fought, but it is truly deadly and destructive to the
Answering the call to serve causes enough moral conflict and killing for the war only adds to it. Tim O’Brien struggles to make sense of his thoughts after killing a Vietnamese man while outside of My Khe. O’Brien writes “The Man I Killed” detailing how the man’s disfigured appearance looks repetitively, and dreaming about what the man’s life must of been like before his death. Afterwards O’Brien reflects saying, “It was entirely automatic. I did not hate the young man; I did not see him as the enemy…”
But I believe he should have died fighting for his country; defending his country. He deserves to be known as the Infamous traitor, because he was willing to fight, but not willing to die. As a General, your job is to defend your country and order other soldiers to fight to do so as well. If you’re willing to switch sides, because you don’t want to die, you don’t deserve to live if you’re not living for your country. Overall, Benedict Arnold was a good guy who made a bad mistake.
In The Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald uses weather to comment on the relationships of characters and cities. The Valley of Ashes is a valley of hopelessness everyone who lives there is poor and the sky is alway grey and filled with ashes. For example when the valley of Ashes is described in the beginning of the book (Fitzgerald 23) “This is a valley of ashes—a fantastic farm where ashes grow like wheat into ridges and hills and grotesque gardens where ashes take the forms of houses and chimneys and rising smoke and finally, with a transcendent effort, of men who move dimly and already crumbling through the powdery air.” This examples gives the city a gloomy mood.
Rembrandt is widely recognised as the predominant genius of Dutch painting and his broad range of landscape paintings, etchings and drawings have always been appreciated. His landscape works are an important aspect of his career because they developed towards a very unique accomplishment. While his drawings and etchings are very much more carefully observed from nature, Rembrandt used his imagination in creating his extraordinary landscapes. On 29th July 1854, in his journal, Delacroix spoke of the success of Rembrandt’s landscapes: “The landscapes of Rembrandt, Titian Poussin are generally in harmony with their figures.
I stumbled upon a plump woodchuck. While I was eating my breakfast, PB and J, in the meadow I saw the woodchuck climbing up an evergreen. The 13-pound fellow was munching on the tree bark. After examining the critter I began my journey through the swaying meadows of Lyell Canyon to Donohue Pass. Miles covered: 17 Day
