[PDF] Im Westen nichts Neues author Erich Maria Remarque

Summary Im Westen nichts Neues

O a single vow to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pits young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other if only he can come out of the war ali. From its opening in the trenches with the German Army in WWI to an end replete with utter hopelessness Erich Maria Remarue s All uiet on the Western Front presents a devastating picture of a soldier at war What s clear is that our protagonist Paul could be a soldier of any country his concerns and emotions could be those of a soldier of this century rather than the beginning of the 20th century In fact despite the images we associate with WWI such as the gas attacks and brutal conditions in the trenches there is something very modern about All uiet on the Western Front It may well have to do with Remarue s attitude toward war From the outset we are warned that this is not an adventure even those who manage to escape the war unscathed are damaged In effect a generation is destroyed by the warIn trying to make sense of the war Remarue explores the powerlessness of soldiers on the front lines From a belief in their government s rationale in going to war soldiers increasingly focus on their own deliverance The end is utterly bleak All the promise of youth is destroyed by disease starvation and ultimately death Those who come back from this war are still damaged there is no way they can go through the horrors of war without the scars

There are already thousands of reviews for this deeply moving and heartbreaking book here on Goodreads and I don t know that I could add anything new It simply broke my heart However I do feel really strongly that I should describe the vivid imagery that I m left with Bright red poppies in bloodied fields Where death stalked its victims It cared not for age creed or nationality What would they have achieved in life These young men with so much yet to experience So many dreams to fulfil If duty hadn t called and they hadn t answered When the sun set for one final time It set on the lives they never lived

Iastic they become soldiers But despite what they have learned they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches And as horrible war plods on year after year Paul holds fast t. The greatest war novelMaybeThis was one of the first books that made me think that even though I wanted to be a writer someday maybe I did not have what it takes This was a sharp swift kick in the gut a none too subtle reminder that there are somber very real and poignant moments captured in literature that escape petty categorization and cynicism there are real moments that cannot be trivialized and placed on a genre specific bookshelf Powerful 2018 This book as a war novel is cautionary No doubt there are those novels that glorify and even romanticize battles and there are others whose goal it is to revel in the martial experience Remarue though has crafted a simple story that focuses instead on the individual and how this ugly time affects his life In doing so Remarue declares the value of that individual life in all life and shines a discerning damning light on war

    It has to be the defining novel of World War I told from the point of view of a German soldier fighting in the trenches of France This is not a novel of romance intrigue and adventure; it is a stark and frightingly realistic description of what it must have been like trying to survive from one day to the next and almost always failing Difficult and disturbing to read it nevertheless is a narrative of how war is horrible
