Example text

So here the first blocks enveloped the entering battalions with something—and they went out of step, heads turned in various sides, the impetus to move toward the sound of battle softened, broke. Characteristically again, Solzhenitsyn makes the scene more personal and specific than Tolstoy does. Kharitonov resists the dissolution of discipline throughout the chapter, and the looting is given in detail. The simple peasant boys find German efficiency and abundance amazing: "Here—they're carrying macaroni, never before seen by peasants!

She is, ironically, turning on Anna the situation in which Anna finds herself during her train ride back to St. Petersburg from Moscow early in the novel. Disturbed by the impression Vronsky has made on her, she seeks distraction in an English novel: "Anna Arkadyevna read and understood, but it was unpleasant for her to read, that is to follow the reflection of the life of other people. " The need for immediacy destroyed Anna, as it did many Russians who impulsively spoke out after the Revolution.

The soldier who offers him cocoa (which he mispronounced kakava—it is a novelty, like macaroni) constitutes a deliberate degradation of all those noble peasants in Tolstoy who offer his alienated male heroes symbolic nourishment in the form of water and food, such as Platon Karatayev, who offers Pierre a baked potato. If the peasants have no wisdom, and the troops no spirit, then only defeat and despair remain. Like chapter 53, which contrasts the inept General Blagoveshchensky, who justifies his inactivity by his imagined similarities to Kutozov, and Colonel Nechvolodov, chapter 40 contrasts the completely inexperienced General Klyuyev with the one true hero in August 1914, Captain Kabanov.
