Relate how school/mass shootings affect the community and its victims. what are the type of groups mostly affected by this.
1. Education is a central theme in Remarque’s novel. This novel is suffused with the sense that the younger generation has been misled and tricked by the older generation into fighting a war with no
purpose. Discuss the role of education and miseducation in the novel, be it in school, at basic training,or on the battlefield. One way to handle could be to contrast the teachers and parents with Kat, but this is only one possibility. Another might be to look at the hostility that Paul and his friends feel, not for the French, but for the Germans who have pushed them into this conflict.
2. Gertrude Stein once famously referred to the young soldiers who went off to fight in WWI as a lost generation. How might this idea be applied to Paul and his friends? In what ways have they been altered irrevocably by the war? One scene worth keeping in mind is Paul’s furlough back home, whichraises the possibility of his ever being able to truly go home. Another possibility could be to consider the circumstances of Remarque’s life following the war (here you would need to use critical/biographical sources). In what ways do the young men in particular seem to fear the end of thewar as much as they do the war itself? Likewise, in what ways does the novel reflect Remarque’s desire to tell the story of those who, even if they escaped the shells, were destroyed by the war? If All Quiet on the Western Front is a Bildungsroman, what growth does Paul show or is able to show?
3. Remarque’s novel supports, in many ways, William Tecumseh Sherman’s famous quote that “war ishell.” In what ways does the novel manage to reflect this view? How is the new technology of war – machine guns, gas, tanks, heavy shells – contributing to this hellish experience? In what ways does war strip the soldiers of their humanity? How, despite this, do they still manage to see the humanity in their supposed enemies? There are many scenes to consider in respect to this, but one scene that could potentially serve as a compelling contrast is Paul’s scene in the trench with the dead French soldier. Another scene worth considering is Kantorek’s letter and the soldiers’ reaction to it.
4. While war certainly can bring out the worst in us, Remarque is equally interested in how, paradoxically, it can also bring out the best. How is comradeship explored in the novel? Look at Paul’s friendship with his fellow soldiers. How has war created a bond between these young men that peace never could? Paul’s friendship with Kat is another relationship worth exploring in respect to thisquestion. Likewise, the scene with the goose dinner explicates this theme quite strongly, as does the scene in which Paul is trapped in Chapter 9.
5. Irony is ever present in Remarque’s novel, from the lies told by hypocrites pushing young men to war to the very title of the novel itself. How is irony explored in the novel? Scenes of particular interest could be Paul’s time in the trench with the dead French soldier, Paul’s return home, Kat’s death, and the novel’s final moments. Another angle might be to consider this novel as a kind of Bildungsroman, chronicling the growth the spiritual maturity of its hero, Paul, that nevertheless ends the way that it ends, tragically but also ironically.
6. Discuss the novel in terms of the actual historical period that Remarque is depicting. Note here that while the question is broad, your response to it must be very specific, i.e. you must pick a veryparticular battle, feature of the war, etc., in your discussion. How does the novel compare to the actual history? In what ways is it accurate? If inaccurate, to what ends?
Your essay should have an introductory paragraph that closeswith a proper and specific thesis statement, paragraphs organized around topics that reinforce your thesis, and a strong concluding paragraph. For this essay I want you to use at least three critical, peer-reviewed sources, so check with the library and with me to find the most appropriate books and/or articles. For books, the website Novanet provides a complete listing of all books and journals held by universities in Nova Scotia. For articles, the website JSTOR (which is free to access as Dalhousie students) provides thousands of articles on numerous subjects. Note: Internet sources such as Wikipedia, Douban, SparkNotes, Shmoop, and CliffsNotes are not critical sources. Please ask me if you have any questions about the validity of a source. When it comes to the use of critical sources, I want you to use the critics to aid your argument, but notto supplant it. Sometimes you may agree with the critic, but your argument is often enhanced by having an opinion to spar against. Be specific, focus in on key scenes or details, and make sure that your argument is well supported with evidence and quotations from the texts. When it comes to quoting from the primary text, comment on the quotes you use and do not simply allow them to speak for themselves.
