This paper consists of four comparisons and four contrasts between the Civil War novels "The Red Badge of Courage" and "The Unvanquished". The paper describes how both "The Red Badge of Courage" and "The Unvanquished" are stories that revolve around and evolve from events in the Civil War. The paper then discusses how war and the events that spring from it allow both boys to come of age and to face the disregard for humanity that war offers. However, the paper notes that both of these boys--by the end of the stories matured into men--go about their journeys in far different ways.
From the Paper:"Both "The Red Badge of Courage" and "The Unvanquished" are novels about the Civil War. Many other comparisons exist. These novels both represent the coming of age for their main characters. Both main characters struggle with the moral codes under which they have grown up, attempting to maintain what they have been raised to believe in the new and alien worlds into which they have been thrust. In addition, both novels demonstrate the dehumanizing effects of war by the social barriers that are broken down by the events that take place both on and away from the battlefield."
