YMMV: The Red Badge of Courage
  • Designated Hero: Henry.
  • Everyone Is Jesus in Purgatory: Oddly, the character of Jim Conklin, widely viewed by critics as a Christ figure (Both Jesus and Jim have the initials JC) isn't one, at least according to Word of God.
    • Then there's the infamous metaphor of the sun being "pasted like a wafer in the sky", quite possibly the most famous line in the book. The amount of people who believe this must refer to a communion wafer is enormous.
  • Faux Symbolism: The cheerful dude that helped Henry find his regiment after Henry run away? Numerous interpretation agreed that he's just a cheerful dude.
