The Things They Carried Quiz #6 pp. 162-188 Chapters 17-20

GUILT. Speak to those who have lost loved ones, particularly through an accident or other sudden trauma, and many will say, "If only I had..." One who feels responsible can go through agonizing days and even years of wondering if he or she could have done something to prevent the death or injury to someone else. That same feeling can be seen in "In the Field," "Good Form," and "Field Trip" as Lt. Cross wonders what he could have done to save his men, and Tim deals with the man he killed, or may only have seen killed, and then goes back many years later to pay tribute to Kiowa. These chapters deal with the guilt 4 of the soldiers feel for things they really couldn't prevent.
