Families had a great deal of respect for their ancestors, their present relatives, and the ones yet to come. In the Vietnamese family, sons respected their fathers. Everyone respected the dead and believed in the importance of a proper burial of the dead. The survival and honor of the family rested on these beliefs. Through the course of the war, Kien lost these values: his father was not properly respected, the dead were not appropriately buried, and were even forgotten....   [tags: The Sorrow of War Essays] 702 words

Bao Ninh's Sorrow of War - Bao Ninh's Sorrow of War When we think of the Vietnam War, we think of all the hell and torture that American soldiers went through with little regard to the Vietnamese and the hardships they endured.

The Sorrow of War is unique and powerful in the sense that it is written by a Vietnam army veteran and gives the perspective of the war from a Vietnamese soldier.

Rhythmical Patterns in William Blake's Infant Sorrow - Rhythmical Patterns of "Infant Sorrow" in William Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience In Songs of Innocence and of Experience, by William Blake, we come to the realization that although innocence and experience are dichotomies it’s common for a reader of songs to detect experience in a poem about innocence and vice versa. To fully understand "Infant Sorrow" a look at the definition of innocence and its relationship to experience is needed. According to the American Heritage Dictionary innocence is defined as uncorrupted by evil, malice, without wrongdoing, sinless, and not experienced....   [tags: William Blake Infant Sorrow]

Comparing O' Brien's The Things They Carried and Ninh's The Sorrow of War - Comparing O' Brien's The Things They Carried and Ninh's The Sorrow of War        Bao Ninh's The Sorrow of War is a contrapuntal reading to American literature on the Vietnam War. But rather than stand in stark contrast to Tim O' Brien's The Things They Carried, The Sorrow of War is strangely similar, yet different at the same time. From a post-colonialist standpoint, one must take in account both works to get an accurate image of the war. The Sorrow of War is an excellent counterpoint because it is truthful....   [tags: Things They Carried Sorrow War Essays]

On Another’s Sorrow. - On Another’s Sorrow. There is a strong religious theme running throughout this poem. Black uses the idea of sorrow to show, and how we deal with it to show the difference between humans and God. He does this by splitting the poem into two halves and looking at how a person and then God would deal with sorrow. Blake asks several questions, as it is in first person at this point I feel that it is Blake asking the questions, which are, ‘Can I see another’s woe, And not be in sorrow too. Can I see another’s grief, And not seek for kind relief?’ This is an example of Blake’s use for the rhetorical question, which stirs thoughts of how we cope with sorrow, which is shown when he asks, if I can...   [tags: English Literature] 686 words

In Goethe's novel "The Sorrows of Young Werther", we find another romantic character fulfilling his tragic destiny by falling victim to extreme self-deception.
