Chris was a very selfish man. Chris went off after he graduated college and “lived off the land”. Chris would travel to the coast of Mexico, the plains of Kansas, and the dunes of Nevada. Chris went on a final expedition to Alaska that cost him everything. In the following paragraphs I will fully detail how Chris was reckless, selfish, and naive.
I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills. Chris McCandless was very courageous for ditching all his possessions to take a trip in the wilderness. “Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” I do agree with Callarman because I think Chris was a little crazy for doing these actions. He was a very courageous for doing this because not many people would take a random trip to the wilderness because people would rather be in
His journey would lead to his death, but seemed like he achieved by living in the wild other than in society. Chris McCandless seeked to find his own truth in life by going into the Alaskan wilderness. Even though Chris’s journey turned fatal, he should be admired for his courage on going into the wilderness and seeking his values, where most other people won’t end up in a wilderness for their beliefs. Chris wanted to find his own truth out in the wilderness. He wanted to be out of society and all of the problems just to be free.
The buyers are always forgotten in this market such as Tom and Daisy. Tom condemns Gatsby of making his money illegally, while he is spending his illegally. Tom and Daisy are never in need of liquor showing how people still drank it just cost them more. During the nighting twenties and the prohibition men comparable to Gatsby gain wealth and power. Tom saw Gatsby taking Daisy from him and used his money to find his dark ways of coming into money.
Similarly, Shakespeare emphasizes nature’s laws when he writes, “seeking the food he eats and pleased with what he gets…here he shall see no enemy but winter and rough weather” (II.v.36-43). The only aspect in nature which can hurt man comes from nature itself, in the weather, such as cold winds and stormy weather. Man in the forest looks out for himself and cannot blame others for his or hers failures or faults. The ever extending forest in the setting of the play creates a lack of mankind, mankind does not control the forest unlike in the court where devious actions and corruption spurs from the unfairness mankind possesses. Since nature allows man to take care of himself, one has no reason for corruption and betrayal of his brethren.
The hat is its own and unlike everyone else. It symbolizes that holden is out of place, and that he is his own person. “I took my old hunting hat out (...) and put it on . I knew I wouldn 't see anyone who knew me”(65). Holden never wears his hat when he could see people he knows it is only
The voice of the counter-culture of the ‘60s. The one who synthesized rock and folk. The one who dashed makeup on in the ‘70s and vanished to obscurity in to substance abuse to later emerge as man who found christ. Labeled a has-been towards the end of the ‘80s and one to rewind, introducing some of the most profound and powerful music in his career beginning in the late ‘90s. Columbia recording artist, Bob Dylan.
He begins this comparison by explaining that the best scientists “move deep into a wilderness region where they know almost nothing, where the very tools and techniques needed to clear the wilderness, to bring order to it, do not exist” (Barry 26-29). Barry introduces
The humans classify Grendel as a “monster” but does this mean he truly is one? From reading Grendel, I took away that he let society's idea of himself captivate who he thought he really was. Grendel had the potential and the curiosity to be harmless, but he let the powerful words and actions of the humans, the Shaper, and the dragon take over his thoughts. In a way, the humans were just as much monsters in this book for not accepting Grendel, and making him become the monster he was. If the humans were to accept Grendel and they were able to understand each other, prevention of further catastrophes probably could have been
He was selfish, everyone else lacked spirit. He embodies selfishness throughout the book; Roark even explains to Gail Wynand that his motive is his own achievement. Near the end of the book Roark goes on trial where he praises selfishness and denounces altruism. He explained that a human’s natural instinct is to be selfish; he uses as an example of a complete egotist the creator. A creator stands alone way ahead of his time, against men; he who has never wanted to serve others whose only motive is his truth, his work done his way, his own achievement.
