McCandless himself had his reasons to hurt his parents that way mainly because they kept living a lie and it just exploded in their face when Chris found out. I am led to believe as well, that McCandless was trying to leave the Stampede Trail because he had forgiven them but since he couldn’t leave due to the river being so high and strong. McCandless had never anticipated or let alone plan to die just to hurt his parents. That was something that came totally unexpected and without his awareness. McCandless was also never a harm to people he met.
Chris displayed his arrogance all throughout his journey. His arrogance from the start was that he didn’t rely on Human materials. Humankind may not make things perfect every time but they make things because they need them. So Chris was being very arrogant by not using the things created just for his purpose by thinking he could do everything on his own and in the end that was what got him killed. But by the same standard anyone can understand Chris’s thinking.
In the poem, Warren chooses to quietly accept what has been given to him. This is made clear when “he[decides to say] nothing and [remains] hard and serious.” Warren doesn’t choose to have a conversation with his parents about his interest because he dose not want to disappoint them. He instead chooses to swallow his misery and “[say] nothing” because he understands that his parents have sacrificed a lot to make him who he is today. Therefore, he makes the choice of not fighting back for himself. In contrast, George and Hazel in the short story cannot even identify the obstacle that they are facing with their lives.
Ignored can lead to catastrophic consequences. In the story into the wild by Jon Krakauer the main character Chris Mccandless attempts to conform with nature alone with transcendental ways but dies as a result. Mccandless resolution was unjustified because he left his friends and family to distress, he did not have adequate materials to sustain himself in the wilderness and he overestimated himself throughout his journey. Some may argue that it was his right to strive for his goal by his philosophy but he ignored offers that would have kept him alive. Mccandless followed his journey to Alaska.
Mccandless sense of self confidence while trying to find his identity helped him to progress in life, but was also his greatest downfall; Into the Wild demonstrates self confidence as not an unacceptable trait to have, but the significance of the negative or positive effects it can possess. Confidence played a big role in Mccandless life, so much that he created relationships with his family and other people that caused him to go on his adventures. Throughout this book Mccandless expresses his hate towards his parents. When he was old enough to realize that his dad had cheated on his mom this particular aspect changed him. He wanted nothing to do with his parents.
Into The Wild was a tremendous story which Shaun Callarman did not have many positive things to say about Chris McCandless, the main character. He went on this adventure to find out what life is all about in his own eyes. He wanted to see how different living in the wild really was compared to society because he was not satisfied with his living arrangements and household. Shaun’s quote says that he thinks “Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time. He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness.
Krakauer also put some of McCandless’ journals and letters in the book. According to Shaun Callarmans analysis Chris McCandless had no business going to Alaska. Callarman thinks Chris McCandless is just plain crazy. Callarman doesn't admire his courage or noble ideas. Even though Shaun Callarman thinks Chris McCandless was bright and ignorant, also made mistakes because of his arrogance, I disagree with Callarmans analysis
Chris McCandless Chris McCandless is a great inspiration to the people he met on his journey to Alaska. Jan Burres was inspired, by McCandless’s courage to live on his own. Ronald Franz drinking habits were killing him from the inside, but once he met Chris he got inspired for his word from god. Wayne Westerberg is inspired by McCandless strong minded and his courage to move away from society. Chris McCandless experiment to whom connected to his struggles in life and family life.
Some reasons people will disagree with my argument is because they look at Chris McCandless as if he just ran into the Alaskan bush without preparation and that he was reckless for burning his money and he was just really arrogant. I can understand why some people would call Chris McCandless reckless for burning his money but he was just trying to live his life without societies evil and he did get around pretty well without it. Then some people would call him arrogant I can also understand that but even tho he was a bit arrogant he still did know somethings and he also did graduate from the top of his class at Emory university and when he was on the road he would ask hunters and outdoorsmen techniques about living off the wild. This is what I think of Chris
David tried to ignore the Tomkey children, but “it was impossible to separate him from his celebrity” (851) making David envious. The Tomkeys judged by not owning a television and spending quality time together, and with the vacancy every weekend, David “felt as if my favorite show had been canceled” (851). David is obsessing over the Tomkeys, but until he realizes how ridiculous his obsession is over television, he will never change
Wes Moore wrote this book because he realized that the fate of the other Wes could’ve easily been his. The Other Wes admired his older brother Tony and even though Tony tried to keep Wes off the streets he didn’t listen and his mother didn’t want to believe that
That was a feeling he had especially about his father. His anger toward his parents and his eagerness to go on an exciting adventure around the country were the factors why he ultimately made the decision, thus going, “Into the Wild.” Chris McCandless, with a college education, whom many considered a brilliant and intelligent individual, had not obtained street smarts. The result led him to his death
People don’t seem to understand when you need to be free and do what you want to do. So just like running away or staying where you 're living there will always will be consequences and advantages too. For Chris I say he made the smart choice by running away and be free in what he wants to do. But he knew it wasn’t going to be easy to heading to Alaska because some of the advantages were leaving society and be alone and travel his own transportation there which was walking and asking for a few rides. Then some consequences that occur was McCandless killing a moose.
Chris McCandless, for example, starved to death while staying on the Stampede Trail in Alaska due to being rather unprepared, causing people to say he was less of a hero and more of a naive youth. When Jon Krakauer-- author of Into the Wild-- interviews Chris’s sister, Billie McCandless, she explains, “Many people have told me that they admire Chris for what he was trying to do. If he’d lived, I would agree with them. But he didn’t, and there’s no way to bring him back” ( ). On the other hand, as the only survivor of a plane crash in episode two of Bull “The Woman in 8D” the pilot is primarily blamed for all of the deaths.
It’s the same as me saying I didn’t mean to harm a baby by dropping it on its head, but it happened regardless and I would have to face the consequences. Right after that Paxton declares he was always out to help people, not to frigging hurt them. Perhaps he was bitter that he was always helping people, and nobody would ever help him in return. Clearly Paxton had a lack of supportive entourage, and therefore he wanted to get their attention somehow. It is very possible that he had always been a good guy, but changed his ways because he never got the same treatment in return.
