Class discussion

Today in class we were discussing mythical language and the angels in the short stories we read for today. The discussion made me think of how Paul and Nellie didn’t want to talk to those at home about their war experiences or show off that they had really “been in it”. Paul made up stories or told half truths in order to please his dad and the people back at home without damaging himself with the truth. The short stories and poems talking about the angels and visions of dead Germans may not be factually true but they are as much of the truth as the soldiers can tell and therefore become the truth for those at home. The “true” stories of the angels in the battlefield spread and become fact. The feelings in those stories could actually be true; the soldiers could have felt as though the strategies or weapons they were told to switch to could have felt like divine intervention or guardian angels saving them from death.

  1. I also feel like these accounts of the angels was used for comfort, both to those back home and those that were there. They want to believe that God and the heavens are on their side and protecting them, and even if they are losing their minds, seeing apparitions, or did actually see angels there that day, they have something positive to hang on to in the midsts of this destruction and devastation. Also, for these men to tell their parents and girlfriends or wives about this angelic presence, it gives their loved ones a bit of comfort and relief knowing that their sons, boyfriends, and husbands are being protected during this scary time.
