Not only did the Vietnamese soldiers and people suffer from the atrocities and menace caused by war, there were the American soldiers and their families back home which were never able to escape the immense heartache followed by it. Wars do end and people are able to rejoice the end of them, but this is only a momentary relief. It would be safer to ask those who have lost sons, fathers, brothers, husbands and friends to the war, of any rejoice that followed the end of it. Millions of lives were risked for the safety of national interests and security. However, the overall process of war is still imprinted upon the lives of many who remember exactly what happened and what they went through during the time of the war.
Since a young age, Richard’s family was very religious, and they wanted Richard to follow in this path as well. However, they expose him to religion in violent and mentally abusive ways that make their purpose larger than religion itself while completely ignoring Richard’s attempts to make his own choices with religion. Even as Richard becomes older and more able to think for himself, his family’s actions only intensify and they forever change his opinion on religion. However, while Richard’s family was unethical in the way they exposed him to religion, their actions truly reflect the hardships that are associated with a poor African American family during their time. Throughout his childhood, Richard is constantly exposed to religion in unethical ways by his family.

Shruti Manglik ENGL 1102 Diebert June 12, 2016 Dulce Et Decorum Est Analysis The poem ‘Dulce Et Decorum Est’ by Wilfred Owen is a thought provoking and shocking poem which details the experiences of soldiers in World War I. Owen himself had served in the war. Caught in trenches while waging the war, he found it hard to justify all the suffering and deaths he had witnessed. He soon realized the division between the elevated language of nationalism and his reality of death and remorse due to the war. Increasingly convinced that the war had been going on for no fruitful reason, Owen began to write poetry to express the irony of the situation. He set the tone for an entire generation of men and women affected by the war to think and write about the events that had resulted in a blood bath around the world.
In the poems “Disabled” by Wilfred Owen and “The Bright Lights of Sarajevo” by Tony Harrison, both poems present the truths of war. However, both differ in terms of setting and contrast that help depicts the similarities between their theme. Disabled takes place within World War I as Owen vividly describes the subject’s amputation, but the poem is centered around the subject’s adjustment to civilian life after war. In The Bright Lights of Sarajevo although Harrison discusses the consequences of partaking in war in the town, he illustrates the way in which life goes on regardless the horrific impact. Through use of setting and contrast, both poets contribute to presenting the theme of the realities of war.

They would know that many people would die, countries would be destroyed and millions of people would lose their homes. Sadly it is still happening, and I think a lot of it could be avoided if they knew more about the consequences of war, and started to think about the people in the country. Wars always have, and always will
The poem considers the illusion of war as glamorous, and stresses the violence of battle. The writer, Owen, also illustrates what impacts the war could bring to an individual, and the permanent loss of physical ability. ‘‘Refugee Blues’’, by W.H.
