The author uses many techniques to show the lack of knowledge that Andy has to the seriousness of his injuries. The author is using repetition by repeating “He did not know he was dying.” This proves how innocent and how uneducated Andy is of the situation that he is in. Imagery is a technique that is used by the author to show Andy’s thoughts and feelings. “He had known excruciating pain when the knife had torn across his body.” The author uses a metaphor “Torn.” This proves that the author wanted to tell the reader that it was a very painful experience for Andy. The author proves that Andy is looking back to his past and regretting joining the “Royals”.
In ‘The Manhunt’ the narrator’s compassion is for the mental anguish which the husband is obviously suffering. In ‘Nettles’ it is the father’s compassion for his son’s physical wounds. Both poets use unusual imagery to present the writer’s family member as needing protection. In ‘The Manhunt’ instead of the obvious representation of a solider as strong and powerful. Laura’s husband is likened to fine precious china, ‘delicate porcelain collar bone’.
Comparing ‘The Manhunt’ and ‘Quickdraw’ The themes of the poems ‘The Manhunt’ and Quickdraw’ are about love and heartbreak. Both ‘Quickdraw’ and ‘The Manhunt’ explore themes of relationships and mostly rejection. In both poems, emotive metaphorical language is used however there are some differences for example in ‘The Manhunt’ the form is more like a list as compared to ‘Quickdraw’ which is more like a story/narrative. Also ‘Quickdraw’ conveys damage and she wants to cause the man pain compared to ‘The Manhunt’ which conveys damage that is already done. However, ‘The Manhunt’ focuses more on explaining the damage caused to the veteran.
Anderson shows that war has a damning effect on war journalists as well as soldiers, and that their loved ones and families are also heavily affected. One of these effects on the characters is that they lose a sense of hope and as a result, always expect the worse. Talzani depends on fate to answer the toughest questions in his life and to comfort him by covering up horrors in his past by blaming it on the power of fate, which is out of his control. Dr Talzani admits, ‘would you believe that sometimes I am so tired, or the cave is so dark, I’m not even sure of the colours I give them’. To make himself feel better he embodies a fatalistic view which is that ‘there is no pattern to who lives or dies in war’.

Through this he creates the impression that the men who are in the war is out of place and is not meant to be there. He makes us think that perhaps men aren’t meant to be in war, maybe it is unnatural and it completely changes the men that go through this horrible experience for the worse. Owen therefor implies that war changes a man and leaves them scared and ruined for the rest of their lives as they faced the most horrible images. Owen describes many atrocious images through the use of alliteration and onomatopoeia. Owen describes the
It seems like an odd conversation but the men were using whatever they could to get their minds off of the war. “Gentlemen your Verdict” is about a commander in a war who gets placed himself in a tricky situation he has to choose between morals and saving lives. “War” reminds me of while the war was happening, the families are morning their loses and “G.Y.V” is more after the war since it’s a flashback. I compared these because for me they are connected into one story. The two stories were written at different times “War” was based in 1914 but wasn’t published until
In the manhunt, the narrator’s consideration is for the mental suffering which her husband is suffering. Similar to Manhunt; in ‘Nettles’ it is the father’s care for the injuries of his son which he feels was caused by the nettles. Both poets use unusual imagery to present the writers family member as needing protection. In the man hunt instead of the obvious representation of a solider as strong and powerful, Laura’s husband is linked to fine, precious china, the damaged porcelain collar bone. This means he is described as fragile and precious because of his injuries, with his punctured lung described as delicate as “parachute silk”.
His parents actions when he was young left him with the idea that love and relationships are horrible and all it does is hurt us, he felt as if it’s not worth going through the pain and stress. He only saw the bad sides of love, and because of that, he kept himself from everyone; he never realised the good sides of love until later on in his life. Another main contrast between the two poems, is guilt. In both poems the poets both feel guilt, but in different ways. Harrison, who had a good and loving family life, felt guilty about the way he treated his father when mourning.
Slavery's Impact: Diminishing human identity There are a multitude of reasons why slavery is morally wrong, but in Beloved by Toni Morrison slavery obliterates characters self-governance and value. Slavery's diminishing of human identity is a recurring theme that affects Paul D's ability to leave the past at rest. Paul D's painful "rememory" begins with Sethe, but the throbbing of the past is too much for him. He fears the past emotionally and therefore develops a defenses mechanisms: a "tobacco tin" that locks his emotions and memory. (86) Paul D functions by imagining his heart as a tobacco tin where he keeps painful memories and emotions in " rest where it belonged: in that tobacco tin ...in his chest where a red heart used to be...rusted shut."
