Contrast in Do Not Weep Maiden for War Is Kind In the poem Do Not Weep Maiden for War Is Kind by Stephen Crane contrast is used to make a statement about the war The poem shows the different view points of the war how different people involved in the war took the war The first third and last stanza talks about loved ones of the soldiers and how they feel about the war The second and fourth stanza talks about the action of the soldier on the battlefield and what a soldier has been trained for By using that stratedgy it shows how different the viewpoints of the families of the soldiers and the actual soldiers doing the fighting really are The families didnt see the absolute horror that was the front line They didnt see the the thousands of men killed each day They didnt see the millions of men who were wounded and probably wished that they were dead Yet they still thought that they understood what the war was about and what exactly was going on The soldiers did see that and more everyday everynight never to not be faced with it The phrase war is kind is mentioned several times throught out the poem which is not what most people would use to describe the war That is probably the reason that the certain phrase was used By saying that war is kind it made the reader think really think about why would Crane use that phrase about the war The reader then would figure out that the war wasnt kind and think of reasons why it wasnt kind That wouldnt have happened if Crane had stated that the war is not kind in the first place By using a phrase that isnt usually one that describes the war it involves a deeper level of thinking then just reading it and regestring it into the mind
