In fact, we saw in this story that the main who is a young soldier kills his father due to the pressure of his duty. Then, the author wants to demonstrate that duty is more significant than family during war time. 8. How did you react when the identity of the horseman was revealed? When the identity of the horseman was revealed, my first reaction was surprised because I realize that Druse kills his own father and I understood why every kinds of war are destructive for family relationships.
Out of most deaths, it looks like Tim is more impacted by Sam’s than any other. Tim is outraged that Sam is being blamed and punished for something he didn’t do just to discipline the other soldiers.Sam is accused of stealing his own cattle and is sentenced to be executed by his own side; Tim watches the execution full-heartedly, in sadness, and he even yells out during the execution, “ ‘Don’t shoot him, don’t shoot him’ and at that moment Sam slammed backwards as if he was hit by a mallet” (208). Those were Tim’s final words that Sam could here before being blasted. Sam’s passing is as ironic a death you could write for Sam because Tim expected Sam to die, if he were to die in war, in battle and have a glory story with many telling points. Tim’s expectations were not the case; instead Sam dies by being accused incorrectly of stealing his own cattle to teach other troops a lesson about how serious war is.

5) In this situation Bear recalled the death of his comrades when his CO was incompetent, causing mixed feelings and a harsh reaction. When someone is incompetent, it takes him back to what he experienced in war. So if someone expresses incompetance he acts as if he is, once again, in times of war. On another occasion Bear: “confused a Vietnamese co-worker at the post office with the Vietnamese enemy.

In one instance, it is used to convey that the mourners believe they should try to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again because of the impact the deaths had on them. For example, in the fourth, stanza it states, “for there we strike by day and by night, / there we kick by day and by night, / there we spit by day and by night / until the doors of hatred fall” the repetition allows the reader to realize that the narrator is frustrated by the war that has caused the militiamen to die. The repetition of “there we…by day and by night” indicates that the mourners are greatly impacted by the militiamen’s deaths because they are willing to take action “by day and by night” to make sure this does not happen again. In addition, repetition is also used to relay how strongly the mourners feel about the loss of the soldiers. They feel “more than anger, more than scorn, more / than weeping,” and the “mothers [are] pierced by anguish and death”.
“Rumor went round the town, and noised abroad the terrible fate that had befallen the suitors; as soon, therefore, as the people heard of it, they gathered from every quarter, groaning and hooting before the house of Odysseus.” (336). Citizens have lived without their king for so long; they no longer rely on him. Instead, they find anger in the fact that he had mercilessly slaughtered their kin, rather than praise their king and his journey to return to them. In their eyes, he is not a hero; instead, he is a killer. These views are soon quelled as Odysseus openly shows remorse for his misdeeds, as instructed by the gods, and reconciles with his people.

I’d ask him whether or not the war was the most devastating event that had happened in his life. If I ever was able to ask Salva all of these questions, then I would gladly ask him every single one of them. I would really have a lot of deep questions for Salva if I had the chance to meet
