Claim: Madame Defarge’s view on the aristocrats causes the rage built up inside her to snap and create a storm with intentions to harm those who are wealthy rather than act justifiably.

Madame Defarge’s main job in the Revolution is to knit a list of names of aristocrats she wants the resistant to kill. In this quote Defarge is talking about how Madame Defarge’s knitting controls those people’s lives. They talk about how it would be easier for all the aristocrats to commit suicide rather than take them out one letter at a time after knitting their names.
In disabled, a man has been injured by war and it changed his life forever. Owen used the metaphor “waiting for dark”, to show how his life had changed dramatically. The metaphor could be interpreted in two ways, it could be taken literally by thinking that as he cannot move, the only thing that can be done is wait for night time and hope someone comes to see him the next day. It could also be thought as a euphemism for death, darkness could be death and as the soldier had suffered injuries which made him undesirable to others. Owen also uses graphic imagery to describe why some people may find him undesirable “Legless, sewn short at elbow” at the time, being disabled in any way was seen as a bad thing as they weren’t accepted in society by most.

The cruelty of life can change one’s perspective of the world. When people experience difficulties in life, like loss and grief, they sometimes struggle to come to terms with the sadness and the truths of reality. Some may become traumatized and tempted to get a revenge due to the sudden loss in order to cope with the sadness within oneself and sometimes may become stuck.

The Plague by Albert Camus has many themes including exile and imprisonment. Let’s define exile first and see how it relates to the text. The word exile means the state of being barred and expelled from one’s native country, typically for political or punitive reasons (dictionary.com). The expert that I choose to work on is on page 100 and it is the turning point in the novel where the people of Oran start to feel exiled and imprisoned. The excerpt states that the outbreak of the plague currently exiles and imprisons the town of Oran, and its close gates recommended by government officials leave many people separated from their love ones and also leave a sense of imprisonment within the town itself.
He also showed that his emotions toward Caesar has affected his process of thought and what he was saying at the time. This enabled thoughts of sadness in the crowd and they begun to feel bad about Caesar’s death. “Look, in this place ran Cassius' dagger through. See what a rent the envious Casca made. Through this the well-beloved Brutus stabbed.

It changed who Beah was.
It made me sick. I was just disgusted” (240). As Perry commits the immoral acts, he recognizes his actions are wrong. Although Perry continues the horrendous deed, he feels abomination towards himself and the crime he commits. Because Perry feels repugnance for his actions, his morality reveals itself and shows his true character.
However, the irony of war to the soldiers is further displayed when Cross ends up becoming too obsessive over Martha when “carrying” his things, and barely even acknowledges the death of one of his soldiers in Ted Lavender. He then does not come back in touch with reality until the next morning when he realizes how idiotic he has become to love his illusion more than reality. As a result, he decides to burn the things he carries in an attempt to end his obsession, but it is evident that this is ultimately a continuing conflict he will have to battle throughout the book. In this passage, I noticed how prevalently longer sentences were incorporated within the text to indicate the plethora of things the soldiers carry in common. I also repeatedly found the phrases “they carried”, and “they would” within the text, which both indicate the homogeneity among the soldiers now that their previous identities have been stripped away.
Telling someone that something that is theirs looks like a mess can create so much conflict, which is what happened, but Bryce chose to do it anyways. Page 127 shows the complete opposite. It shows Bryce telling Garrett that Juli’s uncle is retarted, and Garrett then makes fun of Juli and her family for being related to someone that has a disability. Bryce then feels himself getting angry at Garrett and feeling defensive over Juli and her family. This proves that Bryce has changed his feelings towards Juli, because in the beginning he was criticizing Juli and her family because of something small, like their yard.
His condition was so serious that he was basically depressed at the place where he should have been happiest. It is very ironic because while at the Front, all the men were discussing on what they are planning to do once the get home, but reality is nothing will ever be the same, wherever they go. Paul was the first to exhibit that loss of hope. I agree with the main thesis of this book that war is uncalled for, it is just a game that ruins innocent lives of the young population while the nations that they are fighting for are using them as toys, all just politics. The main thesis of this book is so easily shut down, but all it is is the truth, unfortunately wars are gruesome, gory, and
