All Quiet on the Western Front Annotation Expectations

As you read through the novel, I expect you to annotate for character growth and changes, symbols and motifs, connections you make between elements of the novel as well as historical or "real world" significance, and at least two of the following themes:

              Alienation from civilian life

              Loss of innocence

              Dehumanization

              Desensitization to violence

              Camaraderie of soldiers

              Corruption of power

              Romanticization of war

              Role of chance

              Inequity of class
