Title: A Separate Peace


1
A Separate Peace Ch. 13
2
Finny
  • Boys dont talk about what happened to Finny or
    accuse Gene of hurting him.
  • They couldnt believe it.
  • They couldnt understand it.
  • Gene recognizes that war, despite Phineas, does
    exist and that it grows out of the ignorance of
    the human heart.

3
Brinkers Dad
  • Represents old, outdated view of war.
  • Thinks war is glamorous.
  • War defines a mans worth.
  • Brinker embarrassed by his fathers attitude.
  • Gene realizes the his private evil, which caused
    him to hurt Finny, is the same evil only
    magnified that results in war.

4
Boys - War
  • Boys not eager to go to war.
  • Gene Navy
  • Hopes never to see a foxhole
  • Brinker Coastguard
  • Relatively safe choice (wont see as much combat)
  • Views adults attitude towards war as childish

Gene Learns
  • The enemy never comes from without, but always
    from within.
  • There is no defense to be built, only an
    acceptance and purification of oneself through
    love.
  • Every person will experience a breaking point
    where they recognize the reality of the world.
  • (some ideas borrowed from James Ellis)

Key Quote
  • Because it seemed clear that wars were not made
    by generations and their special stupidities, but
    that wars were made instead by something ignorant
    in the human heart (201).

7
Key Quote
  • Phineas alone had escaped thisNothing as he was
    growing up at home, nothin at Devon, nothing even
    about the war had broken his harmonious and
    natural unity. So at last I had (202-203).

8
Key Quote
  • I was ready for the war, no that I no longer had
    any hatred to contribute to it. My fury was gone,
    I felt it gone, dried up at the source, withered
    and lifeless. Phineas had absorbed it and taken
    it with him, and I was rid of it forever (203).

9
Key Quote
  • I never killed anybody and I never developed an
    intense level of hatred for the enemy. Because my
    war ended before I ever put on a uniform I was
    on active duty all my time at school I killed my
    enemy there.
