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