Week 7 discussion


Both Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried (pages 101–111) and Randall Jarrell’s Death of the Ball Turret Gunner (page 550) describe a death as a result of war. Yet each is remarkably different in the tone used to describe that death. What are the differences in tone between these two works? How do these differences affect what readers are to learn about the significance of death in war?


Both Ben Jonson’s On My First Daughter (pages 550–551) and Seamus Heaney’s Mid-Term Break (page 697) are about reconciling oneself to the death of a child. How does each speaker reconcile himself to this death? Or does he reconcile? Does either speaker draw any significance from this death? Compare the attitudes expressed in these two poems with the attitudes about the inevitable death of oneself as portrayed in Flannery O’Connor’s A Good Man is Hard to Find (pages 484–493) and Emily Dickinson’s Because I Could Not Stop for Death (pages 545–546). How is the grandmother’s behavior when confronted by her own death in the O’Connor story different from the speaker’s attitude about her own death in the Dickinson poem? Do any of these four works agree about the significance of death to the living?
