Compare The Aggressive Instincts In Call Of The Wild London

Good Essays
The Authors show the aggressive instincts of both characters. In the passage of Call of the Wild London portrays Bucks aggressive instincts by writing , “Here and there savage dogs rushed upon him, but he bristled his neck-hair and snarled (for he was learning fast), and they let him go his way unmolested.” (London Page 1) This helps the reader understand that Buck was not going to let other dogs pick on him and that he was learning to stand up for himself. At this moment in the passage Buck made himself not look like a wimp and that he wasn’t scared to fight back. When Paulsen describes Brian's aggressive instincts in Brian’s Winter, he says, “Brian pulled back a foot. “Hey---get out of there!” he yelled, and kicked the bear in the rear.”
