Charlie Peaceful Charlie Peaceful is the older brother of Tommo. She dislikes all children, especially Tommo and Charlie, though she tolerates Molly.
This helps the reader connect situations to the picture that they already have of the layout of Hatherleigh. This makes the reader feel as if he or she were in Paris. As a child he was bullied by a teacher and by his own grandmother. Feelings and attitudes were also described in great depth.
Also how things have changed now, what went on then would never happen now. The characterization, imagery, and setting makes the reader connect to the book and not just understand it.
There is a feather separating the present and the story Tommo is telling. For something to be regenerated, it must have already been generated, conditioned and produced; inferring that it was society that pre-empted the widespread neurosis in high-ranking officers, rather than the war itself.
