Although the mantra may suggest that soldiers are heroic and indestructible, “Dulce” shows that soldiers are simply young men struggling to defend their country and survive in war far too horrifying for them. Rather than immersing the reader in war, “Mental Cases” uses memories of war experiences to convey its reality. Intense language such as “sloughs of flesh” and “shatter of flying muscle” truly emphasize war’s carnage (13, 16) and furthermore, the damage done. Again, the diction shows the men’s bravery to sustain brutal experiences, yet reveals that war is not the glorious battle the government presented it as. The difference in each poem’s narration also supplements this message.
The important of all this innovated aspect of the film is the best argument against Kracauer’s analysis, “The ‘story of the famous story’ has obscured the ultimate responsibility for this remarkable achievement. It was undoubtedly a happy combination of talents” (Robinson1997). The film history of Dr. Caligari is without a doubt what makes this film so transcendental. It is important to point out that Kracauer analysis also has a lot of factors that explained creation of the story in the film. Society are affected by war, so it is clear that the writers were influenced by terrible experience in the World War I.
O’Brien writes, “You can tell a true war story by its absolute and uncompromising allegiance to obscenity and evil” (76). Regardless of the changes within the narrations, the fact remains, that these soldiers are in the middle of battle and the emotion that follows differ for each person. As Kaplan states in his writing, “the most important thing is to be able to recognize and accept that events have no fixed and final meaning and that the only meaning that events can have is one that emerges momentarily and then shifts and changes each time that the events come alive as they are remembered or portrayed”
The Consequences of Combat and Camaraderie War isn't always how it looks other perspectives- and it doesn't always turn out the way you were expecting it. from Author Erich Maria Remarque dramatizes the savagery of war to show the loss of innocence for the soldiers in battle in World War I. He shows how war results in the death of childhood and the need to become a man.. in order to survive. He uses imagery, figurative language, and a certain style of diction to reveal his point.
The definition for war according to Merriam-Webster is “a conflict carried on by force of arms, as between nations or between parties within a nation; warfare, as by land,sea, or air.” Erich Maria Remarque’s novel All Quiet on the Western Front illustrates the horrors the soldier experiences during war and the effects it has on him psychologically. Remarque uses the character of Paul Baumer who is a compassionate and sensitive young man, but the brutal experience of warfare teaches him to detach himself from his emotions in order to preserve his sanity and to survive. His account of the war is a bitter invective against sentimental, romantic ideals of warfare.
The use of ultra-violence in films is a common thing in modern films and it is mostly used as an attraction to make a film action packed. In neo-noir films, however, the use of ultra-violence signifies a deeper meaning. It is used to portray a very surreal environment in which we live in. The violence in films such as Kill Bill by Quentin Tarantino might seem excessive to most, but it only serves to illustrate just how horrifying the reality can be in patriarchal hierarchical societies ruled by a single “god”. In this essay, I will discuss how the attempted murder of The Bride by Bill, the rape of The Bride by the male nurse in the hospital, and the rape and murder of O-Ren Ishii’s mother by Boss Tanaka shows how Tarantino wants us to understand how women are treated by men in the traditional realist world.
Let me work."(10,11) Showing how war can be so harsh and cruel while grass is gentle while being a part of nature’s beauty. Sandburg wants us to realize even if we were not around for the time these battles were fought to never forget. He expresses his point to be aware of what has happened beneath out feet and to open eyes to see how far we have come to live the free life we were given because someone else lost their life to give us that right. This is very true today; millions have fought in wars for kids to born into a free life in America when we can completely forget all the suffering and toll these deaths have cause to families.
War propaganda is created to exploit the publics attitude and their view towards war. This piece of war propaganda was designed to captivate anyone who looks at it and make them reflect on the war. It evokes emotion towards the issue without creating a verbal discussion and influences people to sympathize with what they the artists illustrate in this case, those fighting for Iraq. This specific piece is called War propaganda by Marc Pageau. In 2003 the United States president George W. Bush along with the United Kingdoms prime minister Tony Blair united to disarm Iraq of weapons, end Saddam Hussein’s sustenance for terrorism, and to free the Iraqi people.
The reality remains that there is nothing glorious about the death and destruction that results from war. Establish context: Towards the end of “Dulce et Decorum Est”, the narrator explains how many young men are ready and willing to become a soldier for their country. In fact, this is the last line of the entire poem, when Evidence: “ The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est, pro patria mori” (Owen 27-28). Analysis: This Latin sentence translates into: It is sweet and proper to die for one’s country. It is interesting how Owen capitalizes the word “Lie”, as this emphasizes the deception displayed by those who want young
In spite of all these, the book is not necessarily anti-war; rather it just explores the various aspects based on his own experience of what life is like living in a war and what makes war a negative thing. Kurt Vonnegut uses the protagonist Billy Pilgrim to demonstrate the last point. Regarding Slaughterhouse-Five’s genre, it is regarded by many to be a war-drama, due not only to the fact that the plot is focused on World War II, but also due to the fact that a large portion of the novel reflects on the experience that individuals undergo in a war-afflicted area. Slaughterhouse-Five also features elements of science-fiction, due to the use of time travel and aliens throughout the book’s plot. Slaughterhouse-Five also is “self-conscious in considering what science fiction is for.”

The war against Iraq proved to show truth to this statement. The film Control Room depicted events that occurred during that era. Propaganda was used by both the Iraqi news station, Al Jazeera, and American new station FOX, to convey the views that they wanted their citizens to have of the war. The purpose of this reaction paper was to discuss propaganda, and the effects of the American and Iraqi war had on the two countries. Key points touched upon were: (1) innocent people affected by war, (2) American soldiers who suffer and their families, and (3) America “helping” other countries but struggles to help their own people.
The novel Beatrice and Virgil is full of many representations and symbolisms. These devices all work together to produce a story that is quite rich and profound and represents the “Holocaust as allegory.” One theme that is used throughout the novel through the use of these devices is that of violence. Violence accompanies many of the ideas that the book represents. The real nature and essence of evil is explored intently to find the source of violence and how best to overcome it.
