english patient continued

Okay, it's me again. can you read my next paragraph of my essay. This is analyzing one of the themes in the english patient.




The English Patient is truly an inspiring piece in literature. One of the various types of themes in this novel is the pain, trouble, and suffering that war causes. War is an example of something that has an impact on human beings emotionally even if one is blessed of not being involved in war without being wounded physically (Can I say ‘physically wounded’?). All the major characters go through some sort of pain as a result of the war. The English patient, Almasy, who is actually Hungarian, has perhaps suffered the most of all four. After his plane crashes, Almasy is later rescued and is soon mistaken for an English soldier. However, his life turns into more of a mess when his body is burnt from head to toe and has to constantly depend on morphine to relieve pain. If that wasn’t enough, he fails to save the life of his lover, Katherine Clifton. Hana, the British nurse caring for Almasy, is just a woman with a regular life, but unnfortunately, she suffers from the emotional impact war has left on her. From her past experiences, the nurse feels that everyone she loves leaves her at the end. Being a nurse, Hana is required to care for the wounded and naturally she forms a close bond with her patients, but she ends up witnessing them dying which brings her more pain. When Hana finally finds love with the Kirpal Singh, an Indian bomb specialist, she feels very happy and energetic. However, as the war moves on, Kip ends up leaving her alone with Almasy and Caravaggio, a thief. This feeling of abandonment is just one many pain Hana faces.
