The Great Gatsby is a fictional story with fictional characters. We know this because the author of the book is named F. Scott Fitzgerald. although the book is related to Fitzgerald’s life, it is not actually about him. That's why I think Nick is a trustworthy narrator, because why would Fitzgerald make a character biased about another if he's the narrator. There are no quotes in the novel stating that it
The main themes in this novel are the brutality of war and the effects of war. In this novel, Remarque focused on these concepts as previous novels of this genre proposed a romanticized view of war. These themes are expressed through the use of text in this poster. The effect of war can be seen in the quote: "I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear, and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow". This quote shows the viewer the effects of the war on the soldiers through the description of the soldier 's life.
When Hale entered the story he believed that he was going to be the savior of the town ridding them of witches. When Rebecca Nurse and John Proctor were arrested Reverend Hale was deeply shaken with his beliefs. Hale near the end of the story he tells Elizabeth that you should not have religion when it brings you harm but you should keep faith in God. Reverend Hale near ending of The Crucible is the complete opposite of the Reverend Hale that first entered the story, because he came in believing he was the authority on how to find witches, then he was shaken by arrest of Rebecca and John, and finally by him telling others to throw away religion when it brings harm to

This is just one of the many examples of this in To Kill a Mockingbird.

When Zeena travel to “Springfield”, it symbolizes she gets to escape the trouble that she faces the reality. For example, Zeena would “always come back laden with expensive remedies,” and paying “twenty dollars” for an “electric battery” that she never uses. Over time that Ethan has live with Zeena, Ethan had “often thought that the [marriage] would not ha[s] happened if his mother died in [the] spring instead of winter” (Wharton 36). Ethan’s thoughts that if he didn’t marry Zeena, he would be lonely and hoping that Zeena would give him hope and dreams, but fails to do so. As Wharton depicts the juxtaposition between “spring” and “winter” of how their marriage should have been bright and colorful, instead the marriage is dull and
In his book, in a collection of short stories, he uses storytelling as an approach to cope with the trauma after the atrocities of the Vietnam war. It is an interesting point that Edmonds specifies in his talk, the ability to use storytelling as means to embracing injure and take control on how you cope with moral injuries and trauma. What I also think is important that we recognize is the affect that war has on not just combatants but civilians as well. When we study International Politics we tend to focus less on the emotions and more on the structure of politics. However, it is important to also study how war has affected rape victimes in the Democratic Republic of

Throughout this essay, I will show you a few of the literary devices used within the novel that emphasized the theme, the brutality of war. Within this essay you will learn about imagery, metaphors, and symbolism.
Betsie refused to be selfish, while Corrie tried not to be, saying it’s the devil at work to be selfish in any way, even during this time. Corrie says this on page 224 when Betsie and her purposely go in the middle of the roll call to get warmth during the cold German winter weather. Despite both of their strong faith in God and the Bible, they still questioned why they were being forced to suffer in the concentration camp, especially when they were stripped of their clothing. But they then are reminded that now they have suffered similar to how Jesus suffered, especially with being stripped of their clothing and being tortured.

D. Clayton James and Anne Sharp Wells inserts the reader profoundly into the time period that the world was at war in their book America and The Great War: 1914-1920. They take the reader through eyes of the Americans on how they looked at Europe engaging in their confrontations and through the eyes of the American soldiers who were prompted to learn how to fight after years of living their lives of normalcy. The minds of the United States citizens were not universally made up on the how they should enter the war. Many Americans and especially leaders throughout the country believed that the war was sickening and “a senseless war” to be fighting. The authors of the book quote former President William Howard Taft by him saying that the war was “a cataclysm” and “a retrograde step in Christian civilization,” and “a disaster to mankind”.

The research topic I am proposing, how did the medical field impact the civil war, compared to hundreds of years later and how would the advancements later would affect the war? I will address the different aspects of the medicine as it relates to the war and how medicine technological advancements would impact the war. Important topics that contribute to the research are the alternative medicine that were implemented during the time. How did it affect the care providers and soldiers at the time? Also the common diseases that plagued the people, not only that but they types of bacteria they were exposed to.
