Golding through his use of symbolism clearly shows the movement from order to chaos throughout the novel. Unfortunately this idea that life can slip into chaos from order is not only fiction like Golding’s novel but the truth is that it has been a reality in some countries throughout the world.

Doing everything flawless with no agitation and finessing the trip to Alaska to fall short to a poisonous plant. The only thing that McCandless could have done to survive would probably be not crossing the river because that was the main complication that got him stuck. To conclude, I would agree with Shaun Callarman at the end because there was plenty of evidence on how inadequate Christopher McCandless’s decisions were and how unpredictable his situation was. There was no other way this journey could have ended for McCandless except if he just stayed home from the beginning. Overall, he was amateurish and incompetent person that could not accomplish his dream, but did inspire endless people to follow their dreams and achieve nature tranquility.

However there is still strong evidence that proves why that might be a misunderstanding. If twain was intending to encourage racism then why would he make Him seem so much of a better person than the duke, king, and Huck's father. Also when Twain illustrates the black and white symbolism he portrayed Him as white man and Huck's father, who is a white man, as dark and scary. Then throughout the story as a reader you feel empathy for Jim he begins to become one of the favorite characters in the novel.
Writers can’t help but be influenced by the events and people that they see around them. This is because they can communicate their feelings and/or beliefs about the world around them through characters, setting, and the scale of events in a given text. The influence becomes a part of the work that they write because, like a limb, a writer’s story is a part of them – their mind and imagination.

Within TKAM, the essence of the Deep South in the 1930’s is explored through the experiences of a girl named Scout.

Brenna Peterson Ms. Drosdick English 9 01/11/2017 Narrative 2 Walkin’ into to school each day is something I hate dearly. The meek whispers of “He’s a Cunningham,” “He ain’t even got shoes,” “Did y’all see what Walter Cunningham was wearin’” ought to be the same questions I hear every day scattered across the schoolyard. I reckon that if my family was just as prosperous as the regular old folks in this town, we would be treated differently.
