Which sets the book of to a strong start, as the declaration was passionately written during the war. Siegfried Sassoon used repetition through his declaration , making sure that he feels strongly against war. During the declaration Sassoon explains the horrors if war in many different ways. He repeats the word “suffering” throughout the declaration to put emphasis on what the war is really like for the soldiers that are fighting for our country. He also talks strongly about how the sufferings are being “prolonged” as he tired of witnessing men “being sacrificed” to this awful war.
Lee is shamed by what has happened to his country, his family and to him. He is desperate to strike back, to carry the war to the invaders and make a difference.

Extract 1: Lee, an intense young man "Tomorrow, When The War Began", Ch 13, p178, Lee's interest in Ellie " There was Lee, who kept looking at me with his possum eyes, as though his wounded leg was the only thing stopping him from leaping up and grabbing me. I was a little afraid of the depth of feeling in those beautiful eyes."

In this essay I intend to show how Cormier’s choice of language presents the war throughout the book heroes. Throughout the novel war is seen from two points of view, becoming a hero or a coward. Cormier has used many language devices such as onomatopoeia’s like ‘Boom’ to create more atmosphere about the war so the read can feel more involved like they are actually their at war. Stereotypically war is associated with death and the onomatopoeia ‘Boom’ gives a loud exploding effect which gives the reader an image of bombs exploding. Religious references are made a lot throughout the novel due to Francis’ strong catholic religion “beads on a rosary “is used as they are prayer beads used in devotion.
Like Hamlet, Laertes, also wants to take avenge and does it openly. Laertes organizes a mob supporting him to be king. This line of action, organizing a mob, would have been very productive for Hamlet. However, Hamlet decided to stay in the castle instead of going out and taking care of business. Another comparison between Hamlet and Laertes is their love for Opheliah.
At the same time it had become apparent to Norfolk that Henry would judge him by the way he put down the rebellion. Norfolk had feared that Henry had believed that he was sympathetic to the rebel demands and that now he needed to show above all else his loyalty to the king.

Beowulf’s character is certainly one to do this and thus is the reason he may be dubbed a hero. Beowulf makes a significant impact upon his followers, in particular the soldiers he had chosen to be with him. Wiglaf makes a emotional speech among his fellow soldiers as Beowulf has gone off to fight without their aide. In this speech Wiglaf declares, “ –Now the day has come when this lord we serve needs sound men to give them their support…As God is my witness, I would rather my body were robed in the same burning blaze as my gold-giver’s body than go home bearing arms.”(lines 2646-2653) This kind of comment makes one question how much of an impact they can truly have on their peers. To have such awe inspiring powers so as to gain the trust and respect of your men to the extent that they would indeed take greater pleasure in their deaths than that of their leaders is truly incredible.
