At the beginning of the play the audience sees Helena heartbroken, pathetic, depressed, and desperately trying to gain Demetrius’ favor. He harshly rebukes her, “For I am sick when I look on thee”, never showing any affection towards her. Helena persists, even while there is no rational reason to be in love with Demetrius, “And I am sick when I do not look on you”. Demetrius continues through the forest, verbally beating Helena.
James Wood sees limitation in Babel’s art because of the latter’s “great lack of any inwardness in any of the characters” (Wood 77). However, the lack of inwardness, sensitivity, and vulnerability in his characters is Babel’s way of portrayal of the revolutionary ‘hero’, a person, who lost all values and fought against people like himself for the sake of revolutionist ideologies. In “My First Goose” Babel describes a vivid episode, that not only accurately depicts the essence of Red Cavalry soldiers but also shows the betrayal of values the narrator needs to go through in order to be accepted. Upon his first meeting with the commander of the Sixth Divison he comes across contempt towards himself as a representative of a different class. “Here you get hacked into pieces just for wearing glasses!” (Babel 231), the commander’s response to the fact that the narrator was an educated person who could read and write unlike other members of the Sixth Division and consequently did not fit in with them.
In chapter one, Jack hesitates to stab and kill a piglet because he has never killed anything, and the barbaric act of cutting into a living creature was too overwhelming. Not only does Jack see this as a personal weakness, but he also is embarrassed by his hesitation and says “I was choosing a place.” His explanation that he was looking for a place to stab the piglet was false and everyone knew it was the unbearable blood stopping Jack from killing the creature; however, he vows that next time the pig won't get away. This vow opens the door to the savagery that will overtake him and many of the boys who want to satisfy their primal impulses. Clearly Jack does not start off as a monster, and he still remains in touch with civilization. Although, as the novel continues, Jack's trajectory gradually moves away from the formal, civilized way of life and steadily toward murder and brutality.
This illustrates how bad the circumstances are for the soldiers fighting, and goes against the idealistic image of what a battle should look like or how a soldier should appear after a battle. The way Owen tells this story shows that his view of the war was that the soldiers have no comprehension of a righteous cause or a meaning behind their sacrifice. Specifically, the rhyming, tone, and imagery will all help to demonstrate that point. Owen uses the rhyming in the poem to help reflect his own personal beliefs about war onto the reader. The rhymes that Owen chooses are particularly useful for finding out what his message to the reader here is.
