In O'Brien's The Things They Carried, the metaphorical argument presented by the entire novel is that memories are fragmented, bits and pieces of oddities stuffed into our minds, like things in a duffel bag. He also seems to argue that war, and its horrific nature cannot be adequately captured in a logical and neat fashion, but rather disjointed and war itself.
