Richard slowly began to miss his home and his younger brother Kenny, he realized that it is not easy to be away from home in a long period of time. For example, “It made me sad that Mama had written to Peewee to day that she loved me. She hadn’t even told me that when I was leaving.” (121). At this point in the book, I realized that Richard was very young to be in the war by himself and didn’t know how to act when he was writing to his own mother. This connects to the theme by showing age can have an impact on somebody.
The author, Joseph Heller, creates the character of Yossarian as a way to express his true beliefs of what heroism is. The book Catch-22 has impacted many people with how it refers to war and the way the soldiers fought and survived it. Joseph Heller created a new way of how to view the war and how most of the soldiers felt through it at that time. The approach that Heller took towards the meaning of war and what truly happens in it was formed when he himself served. Today, some soldiers still have that feeling, but not quite as strong as back then.
People are shaped by society, but when deprived of this structure they are forced to adapt, and as Golding argues, peoples learned behavior is quickly overcome when placed in a difficult environment In the book many of the characters started to detach from civilization, and descend into savagery. One specific character, Jack, was affected the most. At the beginning of the book he was presented as intelligent and a strong leader, and was respected by his choir members. However, as the book progressed he turned into a vicious control freak and he bullied most of the boys into focusing on hunting instead of being rescued. At the start he was hesitant to kill a pig, on page 28 it says, “Jack drew his knife with a flourish.

During those several years of torment Genie was deprived of educational and physical interactions which seemed to be evident at the time of her rescue seeing as she could only utter twenty words that were instilled in her when her father lacked sympathy and had outrageous burst of anger, as well as in the way she walked with her head hobbled over and her arms close to her body at all times. At the time, young Genie was transferred to a children's hospital in Los Angeles where a study took place about the Developmental Consequences of Extreme Isolation headed by psychologist

George had to cover up his tracks for, he had had the gun all along and planned on taking Lennie’s life. While the intentions were beneficial in most circumstances, George ultimately conveyed his authority yet again by proving how he physically overpowered Lennie to then put him out of constant anguish. Companionship is commonplace in our society but was feared for many years during the depression. Many were often hesitant to reach out when in a state of agony, sadness, or isolation, and were not aware that these feelings were mutual among other vpeople. Without George and Lennie’s bond, the characters would not have seen what it was like to have someone to rely on, however, their friendship could not fully thrive in a society where everybody constantly was striving to outdo each other.
be, it also teaches you the consequences of the acts you make that affect in many things in your life. I also saw that different social class type of people cannot be too friends with each other because they didn`t like each other because they were different from each other.

E. Housman: This poem shows how pressured into being ‘a man’ and fighting for their country was forced into the minds of many youth which had them signing up for the mass slaughtering that was the first world war, it tells of how they were too young, too naive to know better. It seems almost as though this song is something mourning the loss of not only many many lives, but the loss of youth. That in killing and watching your comrades be killed, you lose the wide-eyed naivety that you once had, that twinkle in one’s eye when the concept of protecting your loved ones and dying a hero of war would cause. The poem is short, with only two stanzas consisting of rather uniforme lines, the pace seems to change upon re-reading the poem as you put your own meaning and interpretation on the words. The poem plays on the empathy and plucks the heartstrings of the reader, saving the most impactful line until

The biggest things I struggled with was the trash talking and having to deal with the new girlfriend or boyfriend. A lot of children may feel like they have a less stable family because of divorce. When my parents got divorced I was 5 years old and all I remember are the little things.
