Significance of literature in Hemingway’s writings as a “soldier”
Literature as a soldier can be of importance in that it is reflected by one of Hemingway’s writing “Soldier’s home” which depicts the life of a young soldier at war who faces challenges and in the end he returns home. It gives clear information on the experience a soldier faces in the war and the shock the soldier gets when he returns back at home. The main character in the book, Harold Krebs is challenged back in his own hometown by the villagers when he and other soldiers return from the war. He is majorly faced with hostility from his opposition members in the society. He as the soldier in the book, literature is

He wants to become a hero and be known for it. Us humans have a want for self satisfaction. We are selfish. That was his main motive for the first part of the novel. He soon realizes that to become a hero, it costs a price, by war wounds, or death. He at this point becomes self serving where he just wants to survive. Not for the country. For himself. Then he starts asking himself whether he should leave the battle. He then asks Jim, the tall soldier, if he would run. Jim said that he had thought about it. Henry

3. Discuss the four human resource strategies (internal/cost, external cost, internal/differentiation and external/differentiation) that may be implemented within an organization.
The internal/cost human resource strategy, also known as the loyal soldier strategy, involves hiring employees who will stay with the company and do whatever is asked of them. These employees are highly skilled and have multi-tasking abilities. I think an example of this type of employee would be the career soldier of our armed forces.
External cost strategy, or bargain laborer, is based on hiring unskilled workers who perform the simplest tasks. These workers are trained on specifics to complete assigned

This camaraderie can bridge generational gaps as soldiers from different eras can still identify with one another.

Expertise is passed from generations and from recent lessons learned. Responsibility at the individual and group level is ingrained. Corporateness is embodied in the espirit de’ corps.

“The Things They Carried”
“The Things They Carried” tells about the side of war that you don’t read about in history books. The author, Tim O’Brien, does outline with great detail what the soldiers in this specific battalion carried, but in a way that you don’t normally read or see. O’Brien does list off the necessity items (can opener, pocket knife, mosquito repellant, etc.) but he also tells what each individual soldier carries because they are just that, individuals. No two have all the same items for the same reasons, each mans pack and artillery is tailored to suit his individual needs.

Socrates always emphasized the importance of the mind and intelligence over the beauty and strength of the body. This, as with many of his ideas, was in conflict with the major beliefs held at the time. Socrates believed that philosophy’s main goal should be to gain practical results for the greater well-being of society.

Macbeth Opinion Piece
Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a play that challenges the characters willingness to give into evil and the risks they take to acquire power. Lady Macbeth demonstrates witch like qualities throughout the play as she provokes and challenges Macbeth - an honorary soldier, to assassinate the King as a way of crowning himself. Lady Macbeth should be considered nothing less than a fourth witch due to her manipulation of her husband, her intent to commit evil, and her deceitful persona.
The characteristics of a witch are most commonly defined as, manipulative, deceitful, evil, and corrupt, but most importantly manipulative. Witches have a power to persuade the mind

Patriotism was used widely in propaganda and was successful in getting many men to join up; it was also present in many poems published at the beginning of the war by poets such as Rupert Brooke and Thomas Hardy in their poems ‘The Soldier’ and ‘Men Who March Away’.

OTHELLO: SHORT PLOT SUMMARY
The story of William Shakespeare's Othello is set in 16th-century Venice and Cyprus. Othello the Moor, a noble black warrior in the Venetian army, has secretly married a beautiful white woman called Desdemona, the daughter of a prominent senator, Brabantio. When he finds out, he is outraged, and promptly disowns her.
Othello’s ensign, Iago, harbours a secret jealousy and resentment towards the Moor, partly because another soldier, lieutenant Cassio, has been promoted ahead of him, and also because he suspects that Othello has had an affair with his wife. Intent on revenge, Iago hatches a devious plan to plant suspicions in Othello’s mind that Desdemona has

Another factor was Iago plays on fears of miscegenation when interracial couples intermix during sex or marriage. Iago makes reference by calling Othello an “old black ram" that was sleeping with “white ewe" which is Desdemona. A "ewe" is a lamb, so there's a suggestion that Desdemona's white skin makes her pure. Iago's vivid and crude description of the lovemaking between a black man and a white woman is meant to scare Brabantio into thinking that Desdemona's lamb-like purity and whiteness are being contaminated and compromised by her sexual relationship with a black man
