In 1589, Peter Stubbe made a deal with the Devil. In Bedburg, a small town near Cologne, Germany, animals began to be mutilated in the night. Soon after, children and grown men and women began to disappear, later found mauled beyond recognition. The townspeople suspected a rogue wolf and eventually a group of men corned the creature. But what they found was not a beast, but a man ––one of their own–– named Peter Stubbe, a well liked and well respected farmer.
The speaker offers a more in-depth view of their personal experience with hunting the woodchucks. The speaker begins to find joy and satisfaction in the murdering of pests, as demonstrated by the phrase, “thrilling to the feel of the .22”. The speaker admits that he/she is a “lapsed pacifist fallen from grace puffed with Darwinian pieties for killing”. This phrase shows that the speaker acknowledges their evolution towards evil. “Darwinian” can symbolize that the author is beginning to feel a primal “survival of the fittest” mindset while killing; it could also be a hint to the WWII metaphor because the Nazi’s used Darwinian ideas to justify the killings they committed.
Fast Horse falls into a state of depression and leaves the tribe in a state of shame. Even though Fast Horse has left the tribe and gone away, Boss Ribs hopes that his son will come back and after learning the secrets and history of the Beaver Medicine Bundle assume his role as a tribal elder. Fast Horse is found several years later after being shot. He is wearing white man’s clothing including: buffalo coat, black hat, a collarless shirt, and boots. His old friend, White Man’s Dog, brings Fast Horse back to the tribe to be healed and treated after being shot by the old medicine man, Mik-api.
Naturalistic writers focus on extreme conditions that shape and govern human character. Jack London, a naturalistic writer, places men in such situations. These men do have their characters molded by nature, however, a majority of the time their deaths almost defeat the purpose. Naturalism spans from Darwin’s theory of evolution: “Survival of the fittest”, in that weaker parts of every species will eventually die off, like the ignorant men in these stories. This literary style within stories frequently depicts humans as objective and entitled when contrasted with nature.
During this, he killed a man in his neighboring county. The Miller family moved to Fort Worth in 1900, and Miller began advertising himself as a professional assassin, charging $150 for each murder. Miller was arrested for killing two men near Midland that year. Miller’s partner, Lawrence Angel, took credit for the killing. In the summer of 1902, Miller claimed he caught three men stealing cattle, and subsequently killed two of them with a bottle, while one has escaped by cloning to his horse although he was shot.
In An Essay on Man, Alexander Pope characterizes men as inherently bemused beings who will continuously commit numerous errors. For one, by suggesting that men are “placed on this isthmus of middle state” (3), he illustrates how men were involuntarily thrust between divine and beastly characters. Failing to belong in neither end of the spectrum, men have innately indistinct identity which keeps them in confusion. Pope also elaborates on how men cannot properly reason without errors and deviations.
In one of his books called “A Letter from the Earth”, Twain stated: “Man is the Reasoning Animal. Such is the claim. I think it is open to dispute. Indeed, my experiments have proven to me that he is the Unreasoning Animal... In truth, man is incurably foolish.
Roosevelt decided to assign people to visit Chicago and inspect meat-packing plants. After hearing of the president 's orders, a multitude of owners had their workers thoroughly clean the plants before the inspectors arrived. Though the workers did follow orders and clean the plants, the inspectors were still completely horrified at the conditions they experienced. Congress then passed the Federal Meat Inspection Act of 1906, which made it illegal to misbrand products containing meat, and ensured that meat was processed under sanitary conditions only. Another law passed was the Pure Food and Drug Act.
What makes him heroic is that he is willing to show his true potential even at the risk of punishment, or even death. His courage is an immense contrast to his father, who only suffers his handicap, showing that people need to live up to their potential and be brave to change the world. Looking away and adapting to wrong actions is not acceptable. In Contrast Harrison storms in saying he is “the emperor, (…) the greatest ruler who has ever lived” and “everybody must do what (he says)”, he sounds power-mad, perhaps even insane. Vonnegut says that individuals need to fight only to make his hero a power-hungry godlike creature, being both an unreachable ideal and unreliable threat.
Speaker informs the reader that he found the death deer which was lying in the road in the river side of jungle having the narrow road. At the same time we can analyse that the deer has been killed by hunter or may have died during the accident and also analyse that how the modern science and technology affect the nature and animals, where the car is the symbolic of modern technology and the dead doe is result of modern science. There is given a clear contrast between the machine and the animal. It seems as this type of case has happened to speaker for the first time. From his responsibilities point of view he decided to roll it down the canyon, if he kept it as it was then there will be high possibility of having the accident and some other person might lose their life.
