World War I was one of the most barbaric and horrendous events that impacted world history. In the novel, All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich M. Remarque drives home this brutality through his main character. The theme brutality and carnage is displayed through the presence of death, violence, and the guilt the soldiers must carry within them. The soldiers were permanently scarred by the events they witnessed as death is always around them.. At the end Paul realizes that everything flashes before his eyes after all his friends had died,” I am young, I am twenty years old; yet I know nothing of life but despair, death, fear and fatuous superficiality cast over an abyss of sorrow. I see how people are set against one another…” (Remarque, 263).
The illusions of death given by Orwell demonstrate a devilish scene. Our attention bleeds deeper into the story. By the time he is done with the story he leaves his audience with bloody wounds and twisted thoughts. The author’s attitude reveals that an individual’s true self will affect the choices he makes. For example, when the crowd passed the dead body no one cared to comfort the dead man’s family.
In Chapter three page thirty-two of the novel Elie asks himself, “How was it possible that men, women and children were being burned and that the world kept silent?.” This quote shows that in the moment Elie himself did not understand how so many people were dying and nobody would try to make a stop to it. He was not able to comprehend why people would not do anything to help. Another example was shown in the novel. “... he slapped my father with such force that he fell down and then crawled back to his place on all fours. I stood petrified.
Lastly, Spiritual death. Spiritual death is a large part of this story, mostly because it shows the complete loss of faith. An example of this is “Never shall I forget those moments that murdered my God and my soul and turned my dreams to ashes.” (Wiesel 34). This is the night of his first time at camp. This is significant because it shows how quickly he became spiritually dead.
With that, he collapsed and fell off the the roof. He hit the ground with a thud then he started thinking and understanding the world in his last few moments. He thought about the pointlessness of war, how it leaves so many consequences for little gain. He reflected on his live, regretting some of the petty stuff that he did in live like fighting with his family members. The sniper then heard the sound of death coming towards him to take him away.
That the society in which he was raised is wrong. Equality sees this now, and knows that it should not be this way. That that is not a way to live. Ayn Rand has a very similar idea, which she displays in her short essay “How Does One Lead a Rational Life in an Irrational Society?”. You can infer from her essay that she does not agree with this lifestyle.
This is proof that Darry got sick and stayed in the hospital for a few days, but was fine eventually. Whereas Johnny, he became VERY sick and fainted after talking too much and ended up, in the quiet hospital, dead. Johnny made this choice because it seems to be a natural instinct to try to save people. Plus, he may have thought that it was his fault the church was on fire and felt bad. The impact on Ponyboy was that when Johnny died, he became a mess.
In the same way I did with the previous human, I attacked and killed the other human. I did not know what to do going forward, for my heart was filled with pain and sorrow. I felt as though I had become the very monster that humans ascribed to sasquatches. My justification was that he killed my parents, but in my heart, I knew that seeking revenge didn 't solve the heart of the issue. From that moment forward, I lived alone and in solitude heartbroken without anyone to care for.
Another thing that was different is the amount of deaths and people dying in the book. In the book Uglies, only one person dies, David’s dad. In the book Fahrenheit 451, everyone that lived in the society died except for the main character, Guy Montag. Finally, something that was different was that the in Uglies, the main character, Tally, had a sidekick. In Fahrenheit 451, the main character, Guy Montag didn’t have a sidekick.
The King’s death was the cause for many following actions that killed a part in the interior of Hamlet, and though he is alive, he feels as if he was dead inside. At the end of the play, for example, he claims he is dead because his life doesn’t have any meaning anymore: “But let it be. Horatio, I am dead;/ Thou livest;
