In all four pieces of text that I’ve been analysing, destruction seems to be the answer to conflict. Destruction happens when a disagreement gets out of hand e.g. world war 1. The four pieces of text are called “Of Mice and Men”, “Out of The Blue”, “The Falling Leaves” and “next to of course god America I”. Here below are paragraphs explaining how certain texts have certain things and how their shown.

The causes of destruction are made by conflict in all four pieces of text. To explain this I will use “Of Mice and Men” and “The Falling Leaves”, and compare them. In “Of Mice and Men” one of the characters called Carlson is one of the causes of destruction in “Of Mice and Men”, because he was he one that complained about Candy’s dog, which it got shot. He complained about how old and stinky it was. Here is the evidence - “Well, I can’’t stand him in here” said Carlson. “That stink hangs around even after he’s gone”. He walked over with his heavy- legged stride and looked down at the dog. “Got no teeth” he said. “He’s all stiff with rheumatism. He aint no good to you, Candy. An he ain’t no good to himself. Why’nt you shoot him, Candy?”. “If you want me to, I’ll put the old devil out of his misery right now and get I over with. Ain’t nothing left for him. Can’t eat, can’t see, can’t even walk without hurtin.” That happened before Candy’s dog was shot dead. “The Falling Leaves” was made by destruction and that was when Austria's Archduke Franz Ferdinand got assassinated by Bosnian revolutionary, Gavrilo Princip. That’s when it all kicked off with the war (Margaret Postgate Cole made the poem, she was alive when the war was on), Here is evidence of destruction in the poem - “Like snowflakes falling on the Flemish clay”, (the snowflakes are soldiers falling on to the ground). Out of the two I’ve explained I’d say “The Falling Leaves” is more
