“When a man has seen so many dead he cannot understand any longer why there should be so much anguish over a single individual.” (Remarque, 181) During the war, many soldiers may often become desensitized and not feel the emotions they would usually feel when a friend or comrade dies. The war causes them to have a feeling of loss; they lose their emotions and friends; they lose a part of themselves during the war. If the soldiers were to think about every single death that occurred they would go mad. There are so many deaths everyday that it makes them have to move on pretty quickly. Paul, the main character from Erich Maria Remarque’s novel, All Quiet on The Western Front, and Roland Gerard Garvin, known as Ged, a British soldier who often

These are only some of the factors to why someone might act one way in a situation and another person might act differently in the same situation.
Both times the butterflies appear after death and one cant help but think that Tim uses this as a symbol of life and maybe an afterlife which could be a way of making him feel better about the loss if life. Although both deal with the emotions that come along with death and war there are some very drastic differences as well. They both show very polar sides to the burden of war. First in “The Man I Killed” Tim O’Brien tries to create emotion as a way of connecting with the man he just murdered, while in “Field Trip” he tries to seek emotions by reconnection with somebody he lost. The show very opposite sides to war and prove that guilt can be felt from both

From the other member 's perspective, he could be perceived as sad, but in reality he was trying his hardest to contain the smirk that wanted to spread across his cheeks. Deidara wasn 't exactly happy about the death of his partner who he had been with for years. He actually respected his hard ass and impatient partner by calling him "Danna", even when the other regarded Deidara 's art as nothing but trash. Deidara couldn 't help, but feel joy that his partner who always stated that his body was everlasting, died before Deidara did. This was /proof/ that art is ephemeral.
