The Things They Carried Chapter 14, Style

A girl of fourteen dances gracefully after her village has been destroyed. Her family is dead. She ignores the American soldiers, though Azar repeatedly demands to know why she is dancing. After they leave the village, he begins to mock her dancing, and Henry Dobbins gets angry. He holds Azar over a well, asking him if he wants to be dropped in. Azar says no, and Henry says, "All right then, dance right." Chapter 14, pg. 136
