The animals, plants, landscape, and other environmental elements play a major role in the religion of Native Americans. Many of the legends passed down were an attempt to explain events that occured in nature. Native American religion includes a number of practices, ceremonies, and traditions. These ceremonies are in honor of a number of events. The practice of taking certain hallucinogens was commonly used to gain greater insight or to communicate with the gods.
By examining Dürer’s works of various genres, including still life, landscape, as well as religious paintings and preparatory studies, I argue that he had been pursuing the genuine form of nature throughout his later career with refined textures and details. More importantly, his pursuit of nature as the ultimate goal of art asserted the initiative of artist as creative individual at the time and helped to establish nature as a distinctive subject matter. Dürer’s lively depiction of nature and skilful mastery of
It is clearly intentional that the main character is a dog, and it is a great choice to show the transformation of Buck being a housedog to becoming a pack leader for wolves. Kelchner says that” His goal is not to make animals appear human, but to emphasize the hereditary connection that humans have with animals” (Kelchner, 2). I think that this is a great point, because when Buck ends up having a connection with Thornton, he is almost humanized due to the friendship that they seem to have with each other. On another note, Dirda discusses how London uses lyrical and beautiful passages in The Call of the Wild, which push us “into the realm of the dreamlike and the fantastic” (Dirda, 259). Anytime that something other than Buck is present, we get this almost sense of dread, because we know that nothing nice has seemed to happen to Buck throughout the story.

In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, the idea of the natural world is recurring and helps relate many characters with nature. Victor Frankenstein, the protagonist in the novel, has a very close and unique relationship with the natural world. In Victor’s life, the idea of the sublime or the natural world comes up in emotional and significant moments. Nature changes Victor’s mood, forms his character, and shows his growth through poetic devices. In Frankenstein, nature directly affects what Victor sees and feels.
Have you ever wondered how Native Americans believe the world came to be? Both stories include the elements that make the world balanced. The stories “World on the Turtle's Back” and “The Menominee” both include the importance of nature and animals. Also, their beliefs on what makes things good and evil. Finally, they include how the gods created man, woman, and earth.
Interactions between humans and animals are extremely common in ancient literary works. Countless famous epics have drawn upon the interactions of humans with some aspect of the natural world. Most commonly, humans have been shown to interact with animals in antiquity to help give them clues of the task that they need to complete. These animals can be anything from a common hawk grazing the sky to a God of Olympus that has taken the form of a heron to signal warriors. In The Iliad specifically, birds play an interesting role as a medium between the world of humans and the world of the divine Gods.
In the epic poem The Iliad, armies and individuals on both sides of the Trojan War are compared to animals through a figure of speech called, simile. The similes reveal qualities about the nature of honor and leadership. Through out the epic, both Gods and mortals have made decisions in battle that are considered honorable or dishonorable. While the narrator does not directly say an action is honorable or dishonorable, it is implied through simile that an action is to be viewed a certain way. For example, when Agamemnon attacks a group of Trojan soldiers he is compared to a lion and, the Trojans are compared to cattle stampeding in fear of the lion.
