    It was a warm morning in October when I faced for the first time in my life how painful it would be being a shy person. There I was, nine years old, inside the classroom, right after my classmates and I had read a tale named “Malagueta Pepper John”.

    Both Wilfred Owen and Tim O’Brien had similar ideas when it came to writing about war. They chose to write more about the emotional and sometimes physical implications of battle rather than the traditional subject of the fight alone. That is why the pieces Anthem for Doomed Youth, Dulce Et Decorum Est and The Things They Carried have stood the test of time.
