I know that we finished reading Lawrence a while ago but I am writing an essay on her book and am still super annoyed that she did not talk about her experience at the war. Her whole purpose was to get to the front so she could write a realistic portrayal of war. Yet the entire time she describes everything but the war. In fact, throughout the book she makes many humorous comments to the point in which I am now doubting her credibility. She makes everything seem so light-hearted and great. Even when she does tell us about some of the hardships she experienced, they’re very vague and short; she leaves so much out. I just can’t understand why someone would go through all of that trouble to get to the front, stay there for 10 days, and then not even talk about it. Someone in my class said that she thinks she is an attention-seeker who wants to boast. I can definitely see that after finishing the book. She makes herself look good and war look even better. It really bothers me that I will never know what happened those ten days.
