The protagonist is not given a name because the author is using him to represent any individual during war. The writer is trying to tell us that anyone could be in his shoes during war. He had not eaten since morning because he is in war so he has to hide, the only time he might feel safe to eat is when he knows the enemies can not be sighted and he is in a safe place. The first mood was determination to kill his enemy. This was in paragraph 19, he wanted to kill his enemy so he could come out from his hiding and go report to his commander. The second mood was remorse and it was shown from paragraph 20-21, he Cursed himself for the death of his enemy. We see such contrasts because the writer is trying to tell us that even though war portrays human beings as people to just shoot and fight that among those human beings they are ones who curse themselves or feel regret due to the war No matter how tough they have to be. The author was saying that war can make your family members your enemies, since war portrays human beings as objects to be shot at , it can be a loved one you shoot because he is on your enemies side. The sniper did not know his brother was the enemy, it could have been the brother that shot him because they were enemies during the war.
