Chapter 7. Mother Night
#4. In Chapter 7, Campbell says that his father never tired of looking at a “picture history of the First World War” which featured “pictures of men hung on barbed
wire, mutilated women, bodies stacked like cordwood—all furniture of world wars” (25-26). Do you think that Campbell’s father was alone in his morbid fascination or
do you think that this behavior is part of human nature? If it is part of human nature, what does it say about that nature?
