Significance of Black Rain Quote
I'm writing a commentary at school on the passage of the novel from Black Rain, Including the quote:
“If only we’d been born in a country, not a damn-fool state.”
What is the difference between a country and a state and what is the significance of this quote?
Somehow I doubt that this quote is meant to portray the soldiers kindly given the cruel, heartless, mechanical way they are portrayed throughout the extract and throughout the novel.
If you understand the significance of this quote, please enlighten me.
