In this excerpt from Ernest Hemingway’s “In Another Country,” which sentence shows the low self-esteem of the soldiers and their belief that being a soldier has nothing to do with bravery? The three with the medals were like hunting-hawks; and I was not a hawk, although I might seem a hawk to those who had never hunted; they, the three, knew better and so we drifted apart. But I stayed good friends with the boy who had been wounded his first day at the front, because he would never know now how he would have turned out; so he could never be accepted either, and I liked him because I thought perhaps he would not have turned out to be a hawk either.
1) One difference is that, in the poem, Paul Revere rode by himself. In reality, he rode with a guy named William Dawes and another guy named Samuel Prescott. Another difference is that, in the poem, the events happened on April 18th. In reality, they happened on April 16th.
2) He made Revere a symbol of all the values that were (and still are) important to the country, such as liberty, individuality, freedom, and patriotism.
3) Throughout the poem, he treats Paul Revere as if he was more than just a messenger riding around on a horse yelling out warnings to all the neighbors in town. He is called “a voice in the darkness”, which gives a very serious tone to the poem and reminds the reader that this man was doing something very special and important. Also, the poem starts out, “Listen, my children, and you shall hear”, and this phrase sounds more formal and serious than, “Hey kids, want to hear a good story?”
