What was the occupation of Gerard Duval, the Frenchman killed by Paul Bäumer?
A. Printer.
B. Politician.
C. Student.
D. Baker.
After killing Duval Paul learns more about him by rummaging through his wallet, locating letters and pictures of his family, and learning that he worked as a typesetter. Paul regrets the death, noting “the dead man might have had thirty more years of life if only I had impressed the way back to our trench more sharply on my memory.” The crazed monologue continues, with Paul vowing to write to Duval’s wife, begging forgiveness, and seeking an illogical atonement by promising to become a printer.
