O’Brien writes “They carried all the emotional baggage of men who might die. Grief, terror, love, longing-these were intangibles, but intangibles has their own mass and specific gravity, they had tangible weight.” (108) Death changes a solder. Cross’s solders all told jokes after the death of Ted Lavender. This was their way of making themselves deal with the loss of a close friend and soldier. “Zapped while zipping” (107) is what they all said because Lavender died while returning from going to the bathroom.
Owen sympathizes with the vain young men who have no idea of the horrors of war, who are 'seduced' by others (Jessie Pope) and the recruiting posters. The detail in Owen's poetry puts forward his scenes horrifically and memorably. His poems are suffused with the horror of battle. Many of Owen's poems bring across disturbing themes and images, which stay in the mind long after readers have read them. His aim is not poetry, but to describe the full horrors of war.
Junior believes it has to do with depression, when he says, “I suppose he is depressed” and “I suppose the whole family is depressed” (40). He realizes that when he says, “we all look for ways to make the pain go away” (107). Some people that suffer from depression lock themselves in either the basement or “run away to get drunk” (150), like his sister and father. According to Junior everyone is depressed in the Rez, that is the reason why so many Indians become alcoholics, to flush away their pain. Junior's father “drinks his pain away” (107).
The scene might be compared with that in the novel Scarlet Letter, where reverend Dimmesdale, suffering guilty conscience delivers the speech which makes all the people astonished. Regarding people’s attitude towards Mr Hopper, they commences to be reserved, for instance an old lady Squire Saunders with whom he has dinner every Sunday does not invite him after the sermon. The situation presents true nature of Puritans, namely their intolerance and obsession over sin. In the afternoon, the reverend officiates the funeral of a young woman during which the veil still covers his face, however there is a scene in which he stand over the coffin from which his face is visible. Parishioners realise that if the woman was alive, Mr Hooper’s eyes would have met with hers which they interpret as unification of their spirits: "the minister and the maiden's

Professor Lintz English 102 25 September 2015 Comparison of ‘Sea oak’ and ‘A very old man with enormous wings’ In 'Sea Oak', the "Religion" theme is utilized as a part of negative and sarcastic tone. In the dialog between the narrator and his dad when he went to the house after Aunt Bernie came back from death, we can perceive how "Religion" is used in an apparatus to abuse poor people, not helping them.

She was raised from death like Jesus, and she has the "superpowers" like the future's prophets and making thumbprints on individuals' brows. Additionally, she carried on with her entire life devotedly and passed on virgin, which is identified with the foundation of

At the same time, the narrator didn’t use emotional words to express his feeling but readers could understand his pain of seeing how his brother suffered after war was already beyond explaining by words.

My baby brother died an excruciating death at the age of 21on April 4, 2006 as he laid his head in my lap.
