7. Identify the structure of this story. Is there a beginning, middle and end?
Throughout The Things They Carried, the lack of a distinct structure plays a vital role in setting a tone for the story, there is no clear beginning, middle, or end, in a conventional. The tone is set to be very upbeat and jumpy and tends to skip from one subject to another without transition, which in a broader meaning represents the way his mind is still trying to process the happenings of the war and the underlined purpose of the war which had occurred, and also identifies not only the physical war that was fought but it can be identified as an internal war that still follows him even years after the war. On several occasions he states things such as "I don't know why I still write about this" and how his daughter thinks he should move on, he identifies his struggle and war which that aids to the unorganized structure. The structure does not have a specific timeline or order of importance in which it is arranged by which makes it more difficult to follow.

Sandra you have great ideas, but you need to make sure you are proofreading what you write since there are several run-on sentences which makes it difficult to grasp an understanding of your post.
