During the college years, Chris had gradually become disenchanted with his own well-off lifestyle and turned himself into an avid follower of Tolstoy’s asceticism, “In college McCandless began emulating Tolstoy’s asceticism and moral rigor to a degree that first astonished, and then alarmed, those who were close to him” (Krakauer, Author’s Note ). The reason why Chris hooked on asceticism was largely due to Chris’s changed perception of the world that “McCandless took life’s inequities to heart” (Krakauer 113), and “More and more of the classes he took addressed such pressing social issues as racism and world hunger and inequities in the distribution of wealth” (Krakauer 123) only reinforced his stances on the issue of social inequities. Seemingly, Chris considered practicing asceticism: living a frugal, abstinent, and austere life, as his expression of disapproving the unjust world. Subsequently, the asceticism which helped transform Chris into a totally spiritual person also made him a single-minded person with greater intransigence. For Chris, anything as opposed to asceticism was a disturbance to him, including the material society, a mundane career path, and the relationship with his parents whom he labeled as “hypocrite.” Since the metamorphosis took place, Chris had faithfully abided by the exact principles of asceticism wherever he went and whatever he did.

Darcy first arrived at Netherfield, he and Mr. Bingley gave off a first impression in Meryton, Hertfordshire, England. Mr. Bingley came off as a nice man in search of a good time and a woman and Mr. Darcy came off as a proud man that did not want to be there. These first impression gave way for the middle-class Bennet girls to speculate on how good the men of the upper-class were and their first impressions were that they only cared about their pride and not about love. These impressions set off the stage for the characters’ relationship and their growth. Jane Austen originally wanted to name the novel First Impressions before setting for Pride and Prejudice, which just goes to show that the first time they saw each other was just as important as their thoughts as well as the reputation and wealth that her admirer had.
