This paper examines how "The Tin Drum", written by Gunter Grass, is one of the most outstanding novels that represents the cruelties inflicted by the German army on others. In particular, it looks at how the prime character in the story is Oskar Matzerath, who, as a result of the hard German regime and cruelties, repudiates to grow up in protest of the Germans. It attempts to explain the psyche behind Oskar's thinking and why he became the sort of person he was. It primarily emphasizes the main theme of the book, i.e. guilt, and explains whether this feeling turned Oskar into a better person or just caused an evasion in his personality.
