Descriptive Essay

  1. Considering the outcome of the story, what is ironic or surprising about Farquhar’s longing for the “larger life of a soldier?” What is ironic about the fact that Farquhar agrees with the saying that “all is fair in love and war?”

It is ironic because in the flashback, he helps put a soldier in need of water.  This is ironic because all was not fair in love and war in the story.
