Suicide in the trenches

...‘Smug-faced’ makes us feel as if the crowd, to the soldiers, are rather vain, thinking that they are being patriotic and contributing to the war effort by cheering the soldiers.

This quotation has a link to the previous stanza; ‘no one spoke of him again’; the crowds cheer those on who c...

Love Suicides at Amijima

Also, when she reveals that she sent Koharu a letter asking to end her relationship with Jihei, she immediately asks Jihei to save Koharu instead of forgetting about the request.

I am quite confused as to why she would do this, considering she has been nothing bu...

Cyber-Bullying and aTeenage Suicide

...I really would like to ask some of the teens that have been charged in connection to these suicides if they are able to sleep at night. How the teens involved are going to feel knowing they have been a reason, why another human being took their life?

I would like to ask the parents of the cyber-bullies who have been charged in the suicide ...

Anti-gay bullying stereotypes and suicides

...It is certain that stereotypes still persist in modern culture. It is not entirely possible to rid our culture of stereotypes.

Perception is never completely reality; we will find ourselves relying on stereotypes to classify those we need to fi...

Mise En Scene in Sofia Coppola's the Virgin Suicides

...A diary can only ever reveal so much about a girl, let alone a group of girls. The boys realize that they can never know the girls in their entirety. To further drive this point home, the scene ends with the screen fading to black, with only the voiceover saying “we knew that they knew everything about us, and we couldn’t fathom them at all” this then adds to the later frustration of the girls’ suicides, such that, by the end of the film, the group of boys that have fallen in love with t...

In Flanders Fields by John McCrae and Suicide In The Trenches by Siegfried Sassoon

"With crumps and lice" crumps are bursting bombs, warfare, the trenches are lice infested. There is a lack of rum. The soldiers are issued with rum for courage, before they go out and fight, they have some, it's a...
