The Sniper

This week in class, we’re reading “The Sniper” by Liam O’Flaherty.

In Liam O’Flaherty’s “The Sniper,” a sniper during the Irish Civil War survives a brief conflict but suffers a terrible loss.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Comedy & Tragedy, Death, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

“How do people face death?”, “What can we learn from tragedy?”, and “How are we changed by war?”
