Before the semester is over…

What was your favorite piece we read this semester? Why?

Or, what is something you didn’t expect to learn in this class, but did?

Or! What was the most shocking thing we talked about, read, or found this semester?

  1. My brain is a bit melty, but I think maybe All Quiet was my favorite. I really liked the scenes where Paul is caring and maternal to the young soldier. One of the most shocking things, I think, is when Smith describes her mother’s eagerness for new weapons and then seeing soldiers with no faces, absolutely wrecked from the gas and new technology at the front.

  2. I think I would have to also say that All Quiet on the Western Front was definitely my favourite that we read. Maybe because it was the first proper war novel that I’ve actually read, so the reality of it, although tough at times, is important to learn and know. I especially liked the relationship between Paul and his mother, when he comes home on leave, and I think that this is the scene that sticks out to me the most. I even consider it to be more shocking/chilling than some of the gruesome events we read.

  3. My favorite book we read was All Quiet. The way it was written plus all of the truth in the novel and what often happened and how people felt was so neat to read. That book has influenced me the most in how I write as well. The relationships Paul had with people as well as his experiences, especially the one with the Frenchman in No Mans Land, were so interesting to see play out. They felt like real people and It was so sad as they all began to die. I feel like this book made a difference in how I see war.

  4. I think it is so interesting that everyone really enjoyed All Quiet! I really enjoyed Not So Quiet and how it was a response to All Quiet. I think it was super interesting to have read both of them, one after the other. Also, in some weird way, I liked Borden but I think because it gave me such intense emotional reactions as a response.

  5. I also really liked All Quiet but I have a soft spot in my heart for Sapper Dorothy. I just think the whole idea behind being a sapper is really cool so I went into that book already pumped.

    • Even though the ten days on the front was missing? That seems to be a huge debate in an earlier blog post. But I completely agree with youuu!

  6. Out of everything we read, I struggle to pick between All Quiet and Not So Quiet. Both of these gave the gruesome reality of war. Although we did see this in everything we read, I liked these specifically because it built relationships between the character and the reader. When we lose a character that we feel connected to, it is almost as if we are going through the experience with them which makes it more real. Honestly, I was amazed by everything we read in the class. I am so sad it has came to an end!

  7. While I honestly don’t know what to pick. To me, Not So Quiet and All Quiet were both really fascinating. I appreciated how, to an extent, they paralleled each other in the types of stories they presented. While still being incredibly different, both had comparisons. They touched on the warfront, home front, propaganda, gender, and more in war. Both these texts really offered a wide and fascinating narrative on war. Also, I personally really enjoyed Sapper Dorothy. Different from the other texts, I appreciated the journalistic tone it took on and thought it stood out as unique.
