In Tobias Wolff’s “Rich Brother”, Donald drives him and his brother named Pete to the woods and they stop in the middle of nowhere in the woods to talk. Donald leaves his brother Pete in the woods alone and forgets about him. When Donald goes to his house, his wife asks him where his brother was, but Donald didn’t tell her and only he knew where Pete was (pg. 375). Like in “Young Goodman Brown”, we can tell that the setting of the woods or forest has a big meaning on how it has a big impact on the characters.
On Christopher journey he decided to enter the Alaskan turran with basically nothing, on his journey to Alaska people stopped him along the way offering him items to help insure his safety in the upcoming winter. Chris was foolish like the man he did not prepare as much as he needed to while coming into winter. While, Chris was on his journey he came across a trailer and decides that is where he was going to reside for the next couple of weeks. He was foolish and simple only bringing one bag of rice to help in survive in the wilderness, little did he know he was going to be stuck there for awhile. While Chris was adventuring out in the turran, the the river he crossed to get to the trailer (where he lives) started to get higher and was fericing flowing with water, making it impossible to cross.
The next morning he tries to visit Finny again, and they both agree that his actions on the tree was not on purpose. Later on that afternoon, Gene is told that Finny has died from the broken leg, and Gene does not allow himself to cry because of it, because he feels as though Finny is now a part of him. Finally, the book ends with all the boy’s at Devon graduating and seperating off into different parts of the military. Gene never actually sees action, but feels as though he has already fought a war at Devon since he now understands that almost everyone harbors some kind of undignified hate in their heart. Everyone except
One such person was Carl McCunn who was stranded in the wilderness and ended up taking his own life to avoid slowly starving to death. One of his friends stated that, “...Carl was too laid back. He was a party boy.”(84) This situation had a similar end to Chris’ story there a a bit of a difference between the two men. Chris was able to survive four months in the wilderness before dying, with very few resources to begin with. He also didn’t take his own life because, we can assume, he assumed that was the coward’s way out.

Another reason that could be the lack of information surrounding Murlock could be the narrator who learned about the cabin in bits and pieces from his grandfather, who was one of the only people who was around when it took place. The mystery surrounding the cabin adds to the fear of the narrator. The unknown cause of the death of Murlock in his own cabin and the fact that no one knew how he really died makes us think whether the spirit of his wife came back for
In the poem “Those Winter Sundays” by Robert Hayden, a winter morning is described in his house, where his father wakes up before everyone else and makes sure the house is warm for the other members of his family. Winter is used by the poet in such a way that makes the poet’s father seem to be going through a lot of trouble for his family, even though “no one ever thanked him” (Hayden 9). This can be described as using a season in a traditional way due to the meaning of winter in literature. Winter can symbolize lack of growth. This relates to the poem because the narrator does not “grow up” and thank his father for acting selflessly, or even help his father
Most people do not even care about the partition going in Pakistan and India, so he feels like an outsider because it appears as though he and Lilia’s parents are the only ones that care.

Throughout the story, it is mentioned that Mr. Pirzada deeply worries about his family. At the end, he does find out that they were hiding in the woods during the war.
By a way of example, Jason hated his grandfather and didn’t care or express any feelings of grief or sorrow when he passed.

Later, Jason finds out that Emily has leukemia and he starts to feel concerned for

Duddy did all of this for his Grandfather, but his Grandfather Simcha was sad and walked back to the car slowly while Duddy looked lost as he watched his Grandfather with a gloomy face even though he did what his grandfather told him that “A man without land is nobody”. Duddy states asking his grandfather he said “What’s the matter, Zeyda, where are you going?” his grandfather responded “Back to the car.” Duddy responded saying “Have you picked your farm yet?” Simcha replied back “I don’t feel well. I’m going to sit in the car .” Duddy with a disappointed voice state “But you haven’t chosen your farm yet. Zeyda, wait.” (Duddy Kravitz, 359).

Elie 's inaction or inability to help his father and his guilt for not doing so helped Elie to shape the person he has become now is because he kept on realizing his stand on the situation on the harsh behavior towards his father.As he starts to live more with his father he became started to realize how important he was to him and how important he is for him.In the book Night, Chapter 7, when Elie and his after were on the cattle car he said"My father had huddled near me, draped in his blanket, shoulders laden with snow. And what if he were dead as well? I called out to him. No response. I would have screamed if I could have.
I think that the people responsible for the blueman’s death are his parents. The fact that the blueman’s parents were never there for him made a huge impact on his life and ultimately his death. Because never had his parents in his life to teach him responsibility, he irresponsibly drove on a rainy day and trusted a stranger to give him the right medicine, and kept taking more when he saw the side effects as said on page 24 paragraph 2. His father also pulled him out of school and that also prevented any chance of the blue man learning academically. Therefore, the jobs available were decreased and he was forced to join the freak show.
He was adopted by his real mother and Step-Father, which didn’t seem interested in Dill at all. According to Dill, “Well, they stayed gone all the time, and when they were home, even, they’d get off in a room by themselves.” (Lee, 143) Dill was cut off from his family and affection so he decided to go back to people who cared about them: The Finch´s. He went indeed a long way to find them, he had gone ¨ten or eleven of the fourteen miles to Maycomb, off the highway in the scrub bushes lest the authorities be seeking him, and had ridden the remainder of the way clinging to the backboard of a cotton wagon.¨ (Lee, 140) For a boy his age, he had been very bold to do this, especially alone. Dill´s courage to leave his home is similar to Bilbo Baggin´s tale of how he left his comfortable home to go on a journey where he may be killed quite easily. In short, Dill was very courageous for his
