Dialectical Journal #17

pg 208-233
This being one of the final sections of the novel it closes with the same attitude that it entered with, despair. Starting off the novel with Jimmy Cross and Martha, that shows a sense of loss and the strive for normalcy, while the novel ends with many of the platoon members feeling the long lasting effects of the war and they start to show signs of a loss in their own minds. Covering this topic at the beginning and the end can bring a sense of closure for the reader and while the subject matter may be harsh, it does show the reality of the situation at hand.
