If you don't want to be dumped in then dance right!
Man v. Nature
Man v. Society
This part of the book is when Henry Dobbins threatens to drop Azar down a well for mocking the dancing girl in the destroyed village. This is an example of Man v. Man because of the direct conflict between Azar and Henry Dobbins.
Man v. Self
This is where Kiowa is sinking into the ground of the mud and feces field. This is an example of Man v. Nature because the rains of Vietnam have made the field almost like quicksand so when Kiowa gets injured he begins to sink into the mud and fecal matter and is unable to escape.
In this scene Tim O'Brien is struggling to decide whether or not to escape the war by going to Canada or to submit into societies expectations and go fight. This is an example of Man v. Society because Tim does not want to fight in the war but he knows that Society would look at him as a coward if he does not fight for his country.
This sad scene is when Norman Bowker hangs himself in the locker room at his local YMCA. This is an example of Man v. Self because Norman blames himself for Kiowa's death and is unable to talk with anybody about the experience and ultimately kills himself because he feels so alone and isolated.
