English Abstract

This thesis examines literary depictions of war in Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage (1895) and Earnest Hemingway’s The Sun Also Rises (1926).

It explores depictions of the impact of war on individuals and communities.

The thesis argues that both Crane and Hemingway provide horrible images of the influence of war on humanity.

It maintains that both literary works are primarily concerned with the psychological and social impact of war consequences rather than its physical destruction.

In order to achieve its objectives, the study draws upon theories about wars and its impact on human psychology and provides close reading of the texts as well as an in-depth-analysis of the characters.

Ultimately, it concludes that both authors are highly concerned with the issue of war and endeavour to present it as a horrendous and destructive force.

Furthermore, while Crane seems to be interested in presenting the psychological impact of war on humans, Hemingway focuses on both the psychological as well as the social effect of wars.

Clearly, both authors prove to be against war.
