Pablo has killed; he has seen the disgusting aspects of death and, as such, he does not wish to experience such. Robert Jordan, though also having killed, looks at death differently. It is a natural ending to life, as all people must die at some point. He knows that he will most likely die in his operation of blowing up the bridge and so he must just enjoy his final moments of life as much as possible before he leaves the earth. While he finds death much more disturbing after having a relationship with Maria, Robert Jordan does not try to dissuade death.
Paul knew that he couldn’t let himself being sentimental if he still wanted to be alive. The physical and mental damages of the war made a strong impact on the soldiers who were very young. The sudden death of their friends, comrades, or families were happened frequently. Imagine we are the one whose friend is killed yesterday. We don’t even have time to feel sad for this friend because another friend died today.
They also blame him for the death of Josef Behm, one of their classmates who was the first of them to be killed. In truth, Baumer and his friends resent all authority at this point in their lives; the brutality of war that they have experienced has caused them to lose faith in the older adult generation. The chapter next focuses on Franz Kemmerich, a friend ... ... middle of paper ... ... one month before the Armistice. Ironically, on the day of his death, "all was quiet on the Western Front." Notes The last chapter is filled with irony.
We don't understand why someone would take their life so soon, what would push them to decide to end their life? Most americans fear death, they can't stare him in the eye and except what is going to happen to them, but some few stare at death and welcome him. Every person, culture, state, country sees suicide in a different way. Either in Peace, honor and respect or as something unexplainable and all too sudden, some might even just see it as something that happened and never second guess it. How ever a person and place may view it we are all impacted the same way.
Paul explains the bloodiest battle against the French, which resulted in hundreds of casualties. At this point, it becomes clear that Germany is losing the war, and is running out of adult men able to fight. After this horrific battle, Paul was able to go home for a couple of days. Seeing his family again made him happy however, he had to maintain an emotional distance to prepare himself for returning to the trenches. When back on the front, he is faced with an experience he had never had before, killing a man.
Instead of holding anger, as well as resentment toward their loved one’s murderer, they decide to join these groups that help them reach the peace that was taking away from them when their loved one was murdered. Many people report that they do not see the point of taking someone else’s life away, since their loved one will never come back to them (The Case Against the Death Penalty, 2012). Gibson in his argument does not take into account that not every human being reacts the same way to death. Some individuals take longer to cope with the death of a loved one than others. Third, Gibson argues that the death penalty prevents individuals from committing crimes.
To mean this personifies cruelty and yet I can see that maybe he had a hidden agenda in doing this. This act, instead of being used as an unjust punishment, might be seen as a tool of deterrence. I certainly wouldn't want to be killed just to bury someone else. Further on in the play, through Teiresias, I started to realize that Creon's ruling would backfire on him in a most fitting way. I don't wish death on anybody but isn't it justice served that Haemon should die because of Creon's killing Antigone.
Dally does not see life as a good thing, but a dread similarly to Johnny’s thoughts on life. Johnny has wanted to die for most of his life. “‘I’ll kill myself or something’”(47). He believes life is not worth it for himself. Johnny thought that life does not matter and that if he kills himself then everything would be better.
Death Death is believed to be the end of all and the great equalizer. People accept and reject death for different reasons. “There is conspicuous disagreement about the matter: some people think death is dreadful; other have no objection to death per se, though they may hope their own will be neither premature nor painful.” (Nagel). Which then a question need to be asked is “Is death bad for the one that is in the state of being dead”? Nagel believes that death can be bad for the dead on the assumption that there is no afterlife, death is permanent and you will no longer exist after death.
Poets have used the structured sonnet form to express various ideas and emotions, such as the death, love, and life. In “Death Be Not Proud” by John Donne, a statement on death is given, which does against the common grain. Donne expresses the need to remove the stigma around death and perceives it as inconsequential. Death is not brought up in everyday conversations and people often elude the thought of death when it does come up. Death is feared and dreaded by most people, but Donne veers away from this stigma.
