Throughout Ishmael’s journey he very rarely slept without medication. When he would sleep without medication, he would be haunted throughout the night by memories of the war. Revenge is never the answer relates to this because Ishmael was running from the pain inside of himself, but that pain that had only grown since his quest to avenge his family. What Ishmael didn’t realize is that finding revenge for what had happened to his family wouldn’t ease the pain inside of himself, it would only worsen the pain. Ishmael lost his humanity in the war because he lost focus of what was truly important, like
In the book Walk Two Moons one of the many themes that carried throughout the book was acceptance. Some parts of the book show how acceptance is one of the themes. For example, Sal had to learn to accept death, Phoebe had to accept her family changing and all the things that happens thoughout that time, and Sal accepting her father’s relationship with Mrs. Cadaver.

How does Wilfred Owen convey the ‘pity of war’ in his poem, Disabled? Wilfred Owen explained, in a letter to his mother, that the purpose of him writing poems was to show ‘the pity of war’ to the world. This essay will explore how Owen showed the ‘pity of war’ in his poem ‘Disabled’. Owen’s ‘Disabled’ is a narrative about a soldier that lost his legs and an arm in the war and how he is treated when he returns from the front line. This reflects Owen’s life at this time as he wrote this poem while he was recuperating in a military hospital for wounds sustained in the battlefield.
But as mournful as loss is, death can also be a blessing. No one wants to see their family member suffer from an illness that is bound to kill them in the end or have to suffer through it themselves. Authors like Carver and Saunders use death in fiction as a way to bring characters closer together. Both Carver and Saunders utilize death as a way to unify family members. After their child was "knocked down by a car" on his way to school, both Ann and Howard travelled to the hospital to see him (Carver 377).
He writes the poem in the first person, and uses the pronouns of "we, us," to symbolize that all of the souls in the battleground felt "the poignant misery" of the war, and describes the bleak dismal that the soldiers all felt collectively in the war. The author uses the burden of "But nothing happens" after most stanzas. However, it is used ironically. War is alarming, terrorizing, and dangerous; the author contrasts this thought as if the men were desensitized to the idea of death. He mentions the "bullets streak[ing] the silence", "burying party, pick[ing] and shovel[ling] in shaking grasp", but always ends the stanzas with "but nothing happens".
Nitya Narayanan English SL 18/04/16 TPSESO – (Exposure) T Title. Pre-Reading I think that the poem ‘Exposure’ is about the mental torture that soldiers had to go through during war. The overlying idea of this poem is death, and that once you are caught in the vicious cycle of war, God can’t even save us from death because death is inevitable. At the end, nothing but death takes place in war. Post-Reading After further research, I learnt that this poem was about the soldiers getting exposed to several hardships during World War I, which were diseases, environmental disasters, poor sanitation facilities, and most importantly fighting enemies.
