The Major’s hollering ruins the peace because it made Paul pretty angry. In addition to the Major ruining the night for Paul, Paul also ends up feeling out of place because of all that he had seen out fighting.

Remarque does not use contrasting too noticeably in his novel, but he does have quite a few examples hidden

The artist doesn't feel like he belongs anywhere and so does Holden ¨So heartless with the words I say Just saying what I'm supposed to say 'Cause I had nothing for you I can't love when I can't even love myself Things I would rather be thoughts at the back of my head But I'm addicted to hurting And I got these lungs And I spent too many late nights Thinking a hole in the earth¨ and Holden feels he's disappearing Holden talks about disappearing at the end of the novel, after making the decision to hitchhike to an unknown town and start over.
