‘’War brings out the worst in humanity’’ Compare and contrast the ways in which your chosen writer presents war and its impact on their characters. Throughout Mister Pip and Spies, both authors use certain techniques to present how war has impacted their characters. Although both novels are set in war time, it is interesting to see how the characters have been affected by different situations brought on by war, like suspicion, bereavement and violence. Spies, written by Michael Frayn is a ‘‘bittersweet’’  adventure, about war time games, told through the recollection of Steven’s older self. Similarly, Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones follows Matilda, a young girl caught in the midst of a horrific civil war.
Many of the exchanges between Petruchio and Katherina are rapid and vicious. Using Act 2 Scene 1 as a starting point, explore how far the structure and the delivery of comic languages can mask darker social concerns?

Another time when violence increased the conflict in Paradise Road is Captain Tanaka and how he treats the woman throughout the entire film. However, Captain Tanaka does not change and it is because he does not change that there has been more conflict created. The soap incident between Topsy Merrit, Mrs Tippler and the Dutch women. There was already an accusation made between Topsy and the Dutch when Topsy asks the women ‘How do we know they are dividing the food equally?’.
Ray Bradbury and Kurt Wimmer demonstrate the overpowering themes of censorship and utopian societies gone corrupt, in a convincing manor. In the film and book, many of the characters go through the same emotional journeys due to their restrictive societies and censorship, which are the main themes. The settings in these literary works are also very similar. After thoroughly reading this novel and watching this movie, it is quite clear that utopian societies lead to destruction. Censorship often leads to rebellion, as it had in Fahrenheit 451 and Equilibrium.
But there is another way of fighting for freedom without arms: we can fight with our mind” (936). Through this polysyndecton , the repetition of or signifies the need to take action. Through the rhetorical questions, women begin to compare the difficulty of peace. Woolf is trying to paint a picture of the war zone to bring an emotional connection with the audience.

It has made me realize how the human spirit can endure and survive such hard experiences. Bridie and Shelia’s friendship is a vital bond but is affected by the war and thus detached. In order for the women to reconcile and reaffirmation their inner self’s and friendship they have to reveal their “secrets”. Misto’s dramatic technique and other devices show the deprivation and suffering the women have endured both physically and emotionally. It is through this play medium that Misto captures this exact essence, thus creating a poignant and emotionally moving play.

Furthermore into this, Yolen also describe the nazi soldiers that cause the death toward the vitmin of the holocaust. Similarity to this, yolen uses visual imagery, to describe further into what the image of a nazi dressed as a woman, who desire to hurt children.
Therefore, in order to fully understand how morale and psychological variances effect the Trinity, military historians should examine battles with profound psychological ramifications. A comparative analysis of the World War Two battle of Stalingrad and the Vietnam War battle for Huế City are excellent examples of attritional warfare with extremely different outcomes but a multitude of similarities. A Trinity analysis of Stalingrad and Huế City offer military historians with profound examples depicting how psychological variables influence the outcome of
Statement of Explanation In response to the prompt “Social order can deteriorate into conflict and anarchy with disturbing ease” I chose to write a case study of events leading up to and succeeding a suicide of a mentally ill prisoner of war, saved and returned back to her home country, comprising of an annotated transcript and police report. This is to be used for professional development of various practitioners involved with people in recovery from trauma eg. Psychologists. I incorporated two ideas raised by The Rugmaker of Mazar E Sharif: Firstly, that war creates fear, and secondly, that memories from the people that have experienced war remain unforgotten. The language used in the transcript will be informal and conversational, with some use of inappropriate language to emphasise anger, while the language used in the police report will be formal and professional.
First, as reports or images associated with extreme conflict and matters of life and death, they tend to draw intense public attention, and potentially influence public opinion. Second, as high-stakes artifacts of modern news reporting, they highlight the application of pro- fessional norms and practices to the presentation of highly charged content. Notions of objectivity and balance, reliance on official sources and press releases, access to theaters of action, collaborations with subjects and beliefs in photo-realism and documentary recording are all issues that are tested by the results of wartime reporting and image-making. Third, they inevitably reflect cultural perspectives and reproduce traditions of cultural representation. When applied to the representation of conflicts, such perspectives frequently invoke notions of ethnic identity and nationalist mythology, thereby highlighting important historical issues of national formation, cultural bias, and international and intercultural relations.
