He notices that the women overseas were a lot different than the women in America. When he returned home he realized he had to socialize with women if he wanted to pursue them. Krebs finds himself lonely without a woman in his life. This shows the lonesome and depressed side of Krebs. Krebs has changed by the end of the story and it’s very clear that he is different.
Soldier’s Home Change is something that everyone will experience when going through life but sometimes events change you for the worse and your identity as you knew it is gone. Learning to establish the identity you desire is identity is something everyone should do. In the short story “Soldier 's home” written by Ernest Hemingway in 1925, Krebs a soldier in war has just returned home but his identity has changed and nothing feels the same anymore so he has to figure out what to do with himself. The short story “Soldier 's home” is about Krebs who goes to war but afterwards when it is over he feels that everyone has expectations of him so he lies about how the war was and feels guilty about it. Furthermore Krebs has a desire to look
Character Analysis of “Solider’s Home” In my analysis of the story “Soldiers Home” by Ernest Hemingway, I felt the story had two characters in the story. Harold Krebs was the main character of the story and many details of his life was provided so the reader could have a visual concept of what the author was trying to portray. Kreb’s mother was another character of the story and the author presented her side with many spoken parts. The inclusion of Kreb’s mother provided a nurturing aspect of the story and presented a conflict of the struggles that Harold would endure when he returns home. Hemingway uses ideas in his story so that the reader could set themselves in the story and understand what the characters are feeling throughout each word.
In the first place, Krebs comes from a background of a mid-west American family with a mother tongue of English. By the same token, the French and German girls knew their languages and would most likely make up for their verbal communication with Krebs by gestures. This is what attracted Krebs, since he was able to “make friends” with the foreign girls without even going through the chore of having conversations. Making conversation with a soldier seemed trivial, especially with a war ongoing.
In addition, the similarities and differences between the authors’ styles accentuate those that occur within the characters of the stories; both authors use symbolism to show the changes in the dynamic characters over the course of the narratives. Hemingway begins Krebs’ story in a Methodist college in Kansas when the war starts off in 1917. When the war ends Krebs chose to stay in Germany for the next six months and when he comes back he realizes that the town moved on about the war and didn’t get the welcome he thought he deserved. This leads to the theme of not being able to find an outlet for pain. He wanted people to listen to his stories so they would be able to see the pain of what he went through throughout the war and the heroic actions he accomplished while fighting
To them, it was unknown as to what to do or what to say. Within the poem, the situation was being constantly compared and differentiated to different things in order to portray how inconceivable the moment was to not only the soldiers, but the hostages kept within the concentration camps as well. In “The America I Love,” Elie Wiesel used similes and metaphors to portray how the American soldiers felt after
Jakobs PTSD really shows in the way that he sees the ghost of his sister Bella. He can recall certain specific details about her, which portray how he struggles in letting her go. Its the fear of the unknown of what happened to Bella that Jakob struggles with. She was taken away
This essay will be exploring the theme of war through the use of language in Szymborska’s poetry with the focus of “still” and “Starvation camp near Jaslo”. In many of her poems, Szymborska includes themes of war and destruction and the effect it had on both the Jewish and the Polish people. She talks about war in a negative way, giving her own opinion and often comparing it to modern times in an ironic statement. Her main focus of the two poems is the dehumanization of the Jewish people when Germany invaded Poland during the second world war, utilizing various techniques to describe the hardships that they had to go through in that time period. Having lived through two of the major wars in Poland (World war two and the cold war), she can describe the events vividly and succeeds in making the
While taking the journey through the woods Brown is figuratively exploring his fears, feelings, and many other things he would not normally acknowledge. Again a sense of exploring his subconscious. His faith is put to satire in these woods by showing a devil congregation that has many of his fellow church goers and is visually very much like a church congregation.

Brett’s fluidity within her own identity and sexuality confuses the men in the book, who are in love with her and are unfamiliar with the concept of a free, independent woman. This then, as mentioned above, evokes different reactions from the men. Cohn’s huge reaction was, of course, beating up the other men he was competing against to
