I think that in his head he wanted to just feel at peace and for the Raven to go away, but subconsciously he knew that he would always be sad from the loss of his wife and that he would always miss her. Possibly the thought of this is what caused him to start to break out in anger and start to yell at the Raven to go away. This anger from hearing these answers that he obviously did not want to hear is what probably caused him to slip into madness or the be stuck in the grief from the events that had happened forever or for a very long

The case with Paul Berlin is that the war has caused him to reach a certain level of fear an example would be “Now as he stepped out of the paddy onto a narrow dirt path, now the fear was mostly the fear of being afraid.” because Paul didn’t want to end up like Billy, who died from a heart attack or how he joked about it at the end saying “Billy was scared to death” this is the Billy that Paul didn’t want to end up like, who died of fear. As mentioned before fear had a huge impact on Paul this is an example of him showing his fear “But he couldn’t stop giggling” it’s when he was remembering Billy, Paul has reached a stage of fear where he just giggled, which shows the extent of fear he developed. Additionally, O’Brien had added to the meaning of Paul’s fear by saying he giggled, which made a difference on how readers view the situation. O’Brien wants to show that war will scare people and leave a permanent damage for life like how Paul got scared of seeing Billy Watkins
The Drummer Boy of Shiloh is a historical fiction novel.The author is the late Ray Bradbury.Ray is known as a science fiction writer and he is also known for writing mysteries,etc.The Battle of Shiloh lasted for 2 days and it was one of the bloodiest battles in American history.My thesis is that there will be another battle and there will be a drummer boy.There are uses of symbols in the novel. It includes leaves,the drum,and the peach. Ray uses the leaves to represent fire.And fire represents light and heat which symbolizes the soldiers huddling together.It says,“I see the hands stirring the leaves and opened his mouth to say something,but did not say it(Pg.170).This means they were starting up a fire and it matters that they have fire so they don’t die before the war.The boy was scared to say something because he didnt want to get caught.Now I will talk about a different symbol.
Sometimes I Cry by Tupac writes about the pain of feeling lonely and not having anyone to turn too to discuss or hear his true feelings. In this poem he writes how he wishes he could confide in someone and how selfish the world is by not having the time or patience to stop and listen to others pain.

Feeling sad and not having someone ask you what’s wrong or care is what Tupac is writing about.
"Blush of dishonor" is shame that follows every soldier, shame which brought them into this war, and shame which they try to hide constantly.
