Summary and Analysis Part 8: The Word Shaker: The Collector


Not only does this chapter illustrate the violence that epitomized the war, but it also shows Hans seeing many of the things that Death has been seeing. The image of Hans carrying a dead man is similar to how Death must carry the souls of so many. Also for Hans, words to send home are hard to find. There are no words to describe or explain what he is doing and the horrors he’s seeing.
