Short stories and war

: This paper requires that you examine short stories and analyze their treatment of war. The stories we are
looking at are “Soldier’s Home” and “A Natural History of the Dead” by Ernest Hemingway, “A Perfect Day for
Bananafish” by J. D. Salinger, and “The Things They Carried” by Tim O’Brien. One of the first things you will
need to do to write this paper is limit yourself to one or two assertions about what the authors are trying to
convey about war. Then, you will examine three or four passages from one of these stories or from more than
one of these stories to show how the war is portrayed. Each example should support your thesis. If you use a
source outside of the stories to provide more information or to back up an assertion, it must be correctly cited.
